Voi Unit  February   1, 2018 It was a wonderful beginning of the day with the orphan elephants downing their morning milk bottle and settling to feed on copra cake blended with range cubes. There were some brief scratching games against the rock boulders before heading to the browsing fields.

Mbirikani, Nguvu, Ajali and Nelion soon assumed leadership and took the others all the way to the peak of Msinga Hill for the morning browsing session. Here they enjoyed feeding on lovely vegetation before making their descent a few minutes before 11am for the milk feed and mud bath.
Ajali, Nguvu and Mbirikani decided to remain browsing as the others went downhill.

Arruba, Suswa, Ndoria, Rorogoi and Tahri came in the first milk feeding herd with Tahri being given an extra bottle of milk. Ndoria was jealous that Tahri got extra milk and started wanted to engage her in a fight. Tahri saw Ndoria coming and ran towards the keepers with Ndoria following. The keepers intervened and rescued Tahri who hid behind Ndii making sure to avoid any contact with Ndoria for the rest of the day.
