Voi Unit  February   15, 2018 It was a wonderful beginning to the day with the stockade dependant orphan elephants playing some amazing dusting games at the stockade compound after their milk and supplement feeding.
Ngulia, Kore and Tawi escorted the orphan elephants for a few meters when they headed to the field, before returning to the stockade compound.

The orphans settled to browse around Msinga Hill at which point the keepers noticed Ajali was missing from the orphan elephant herd. Upon looking for him they found him hiding behind a rock at the foot of Msinga Hill browsing on some green vegetation that he had found. The keepers allowed him to browse for a few more minutes before following him as he rejoined the rest of the group, where he promptly took Embu, Rorogoi and Suswa aside for a private browsing session.
The four came for their afternoon milk bottle ten minutes after their friends had taken theirs, and after they joined them at the baobab tree water hole for a mud bath.
