Voi Unit  November   6, 2017 It was a perfect beginning of the day with the stockade dependant orphan elephants downing their morning milk bottle and proceeding for the supplement feeding before engaging in some brief socializing games around the stockade compound. Soon after the juniors left for the browsing fields, Layoni and Dabassa arrived and had a drink from the stockade water trough.

Layoni later saw Kore, Tawi and Ngulia feasting on lucerne pellets and wanted to chase them away so that he could have the pellets to himself. He acted as if he was going to break the fence line separating them. However, Kore, Tawi and Ngulia were not in the least bit bothered as they knew he could not get anywhere near them. The keepers then gave some range cubes to the two Ex Orphans.

In the afternoon, Ndara, Neptune and Lesanju arrived at the stockade for a drink of water and some supplement treats. They hung around for half an hour, after which they returned to the park.
