Voi Unit  February   22, 2018 were out of their stockades. They had a wonderful time playing around the stockade compound before following Rorogoi and Lentili to the browsing fields where they fed in single file until it was time to visit the baobab tree water hole.

At the mud bath they encountered the same wild herd that had visited the waterhole yesterday after the orphans had left. The teenage bull in the wild herd was very interested in the orphans and wanted to engage them in mud bathing games. He engaged Panda in a head butting and test strengthening game. The two were soon joined by Tundani who came in to assist Panda to see if together they could beat him. A teenage sister of the herd’s two month old calf was very attached to the baby and did her best to prevent the orphans from interacting with the baby. Tahri somehow managed to entice the baby to the orphan group who surrounded it as they all wanted to touch and greet the tiny individual. The calf’s mother became a little worried and pulled the baby away after which the wild herd left leaving the orphans alone at the water hole.
