Voi Unit  February   14, 2018 It was a cloudy morning as the orphan elephants concentrated on their milk and supplement feeding. They later marched to the browsing grounds where they settled to feed in single file. Ajali attempted to separate his closest friends Nguvu, Mudanda and Suswa from the others for a private browsing session but was met with considerable resistance from them as they wanted to browse with the rest of the herd.

The orphans visited the baobab water hole in the afternoon where Kenia avoided a bathing competition that involved Mbirikani, Panda and Ndii. When Kenia saw Ndii engaging Araba for some company she became a little jealous and came up to the two, standing right behind them. It was not long before Araba abandoned Ndii for Kenia. Ndoria owned the soil dusting pile today, lying on it while the other orphans watched from a distance, keeping away as they did not want to get their tails bitten, something that Ndoria has a reputation of doing.
