Voi Unit  February   27, 2018 The morning was good with the orphan elephants enjoying playing some hide and seek games, coupled with scratching games against the rocky outcrops in the stockade compound.

Mbirikani and Nelion took the lead of the orphan elephants leading them half way up the eastern side of Msinga Hill. Suswa, Arruba Kihari and Naipoki were left browsing at the foot of the Hill, as they wanted to be the first to arrive for the afternoon milk bottle; they emptied their first bottle in record time before proceeding to the main water hole to have a drink and a wallow. While bathing they were joined by a group of about 10 buffalos. Kihari and Naipoki came out of the water charging at the buffalos driving them away and preventing them from drinking any water. The buffalos waited patiently for the orphans to finish wallowing and once the orphan herd had left for the browsing fields they approached the water hole where they could drink and mud bath in peace.
