Voi Unit  February   11, 2018 After a great night the orphans exited their stockade for their morning milk bottle and supplement feeding. They then enjoyed some fun and games around the stockade compound before being led to the browsing fields by Lentili and Rorogoi.

The orphans started browsing with great zeal and zest, for a four good hours, taking a break from browsing to seek refuge from the scorching sun under some trees. The elephants then headed towards the water hole in groups of five, downing an afternoon milk bottle and assembling around the baobab tree water trough to drink clean water. The mood to play mud bathing games today was at its peak with Kihari and Panda engaging one another in a stiff bathing competition. Mashariki and Nguvu went to referee and cheer them on while Kihari enjoyed submerging herself in the water. The afternoons browsing activities took place close to the water hole.
