Voi Unit  February   19, 2018 It was a bright and sunny morning as the orphan elephants took their morning milk bottle before settling to enjoy the supplements that had been put out for them.

The orphans left for the days browsing activities under the leadership of Bada who led them along the eastern narrow path at the base of Msinga Hill. Tundani and Suswa were a little lazy today, and did not want to move up hill with the others, choosing instead to browse at the foot of the hill.

At midday, the orphans had their afternoon milk bottle and hurriedly rushed to the baobab water hole for a bath as it was sunny and warm. Mbirikani took a quick bath, but was feeling very hot and sought refuge from the scorching sun under an acacia tree. Ndii enjoyed an amazing time in the mud with both Tahri and Araba. The rest of the days browsing activities took place close to the waterhole with the orphans occasionally taking shelter from the sun.
