Voi Unit  February   23, 2018 It was a nice beginning to the day with the stockade dependant orphan elephants coming out of their stockades in a happy mood as they downed their morning milk bottle and then played briefly around the stockade compound before leaving for the browsing grounds.

The weather progressively changed during the course of the day with thick cloud cover blocking the sun providing perfect browsing conditions for the orphans. It was however quite cold by the time the orphan herd visited the waterhole at noon with none of the orphans entering the wallow.

Panda went to watch over Tahri who was lying by the wallow catching some of the breeze that was blowing. Ishaq-B stood close to them before taking Tahri for a soil dusting game. Kenia and Araba soon joined them at the red earth piles after which the entire group left to return to the browsing fields for the afternoons browsing session.
