Voi Unit  February   2, 2018 It was a bright morning with the sun rising high predicting a warm day as the orphan elephants concentrated on their milk and supplement feeding in the morning. Nelion and Mbirikani made their way towards the browsing grounds as soon as the milk feeding was done and found themselves on their own as the rest of the orphan herd decided to settle for some brief games at the stockade compound before joining them at the southern foot of Msinga Hill.

Lentili and Rorogoi then took over the leadership role taking the orphan herd to the northern side of Msinga Hill. The group then visited the baobab water hole in groups of four for the milk feed before proceeding to the main water hole, to drink water from the trough and take a bath. After all the mud bathing and soil dusting activities were over, Kihari remained in the water rolling and trumpeting which drew Mudanda’s attention and she came to join Kihari. Ndii then came in and spoilt the fun that Kihari was having by sitting on her stomach. Soon after the mud bath the orphans returned to the browsing field for the afternoon feeding session.
