Voi Unit  February   21, 2018 It was a lovely morning as the orphans spread out in the browsing field to feed. Ndii was spotted browsing with both Tahri and Araba with Kenia following them closely. Their interaction extended after the noon mud bath where Ndii lay on the red earth piles giving Araba and Tahri the opportunity to sit and rub their bottoms against her stomach. Kenia enjoyed a scratching game against the baobab tree where she was soon joined by Ndii.

Soon after the orphans left the water hole for the afternoon browsing session a wild elephant herd of two big cows, two teenagers, a ten year old, and a two month old calf arrived to drink water and have a wallow. Ajali wanted to join them and tried to get Ndoria to join him. He ended up on his own in the middle of the wild herd but soon made the decision to rejoin the orphan herd who were moving further away as they headed to the browsing fields.
