Voi Unit  November   7, 2017 The morning began with the stockade dependant orphans concentrating on their milk bottle and supplement feeding before heading to the browsing grounds. The orphans browsed in single file on the foot of Msinga Hill until it was time for their midday milk bottle at the baobab water hole.

After the milk feed, Nguvu used his trunk to scoop up a whole lot of range cubes which he then emptied into his mounth. He repeated this process several times, showing everyone how much he enjoyed this tasty treat.

Ndii was the first one to enter the mud bath by sliding down the walls into the water. Her entrance had been aided by Rorogoi who gave her a little push. Mashariki sprayed herself with water while standing at the edge of the wallow while Nelion went and stood in the middle of the mud bath and watched everyone wallowing around him.
