Voi Unit  February   28, 2018 The day began as usual with the orphans observing the daily protocols of milk and supplement feeding followed by heading to the browsing fields for the beginning of the day’s browsing session. The orphans browsed in single file on the northern side of the stockade visiting the baobab tree water hole after their noon milk feed.

While there a herd of twelve zebra came for a drink from the baobab water hole, but were prevented from doing so by Embu and Tundani. The herd of zebra stood at a distance watching the orphan elephants enjoying their bath. When they saw that the orphans would be there a while they came to drink from the trough which was being filled with water from a water bowser.

Naipoki was enjoying a scratching session against a tree stump and was joined by Tundani who waited patiently for Naipoki to finish before taking his turn. The two then joined the orphan herd who was returning to the browsing fields.
