Voi Unit  February   10, 2018 The orphan elephants came out of their stockades in happy mood, emptying a morning milk bottle and settling for supplement foods before engaging in some brief games around the stockade compound.

The orphans had a wonderful morning browsing half way up the eastern side of Msinga Hill, with Arruba sticking close to her long time friend Suswa as the two enjoyed browsing in one anotherís company. Ndii headed further uphill to explore and spend some time browsing alone and did not notice the other orphans heading towards the baobab water hole for an afternoon milk bottle and mud bath. Ndii came running down, charging up to the group who were already at the waterhole. She plunged into the water kicking at it with her fore foot, splashing muddy water all over her friends. She then moved to the edge of the mud bath plowing the soil with her tusk. Rorogoi and Araba went close to Ndii before they all joined the rest of the herd who spent the afternoon browsing close to the water hole.
