Voi Unit  February   13, 2018 It was a cloudy morning as the orphan elephants milled around the stockade for a breakfast milk bottle and supplement feeding before enjoying some games around the stockade compound. They left for the browsing fields under the leadership of Suswa, Arruba, and Naipoki. The orphans spent the morning browsing on the western side of the stockade before slowly making their way to the baobab tree water hole.

After a wonderful mud bathing session, the orphans were joined by a wild elephant bull that was given a warm welcome by the orphan herd who trumpeted greetings at him while stretching their trunks towards him. Panda was particularly friendly and was the first to go up to him and greet him. Tahri stretched her trunk to greet him from a distance as she didnít want to get to close. The wild bull browsed briefly with the orphan elephants before leaving for the Mzima spring-Mombasa water pipe line area.
