Voi Unit  February   3, 2018 It was a nice beginning to the day, as the orphan elephants enjoyed their morning milk bottle before settling for their routine supplement feeding. Ngulia, Kore and Tawi ran down from their stables in a game of chasing one another and the elephants orphans scattered in fright, as they didnít realize that Ngulia, Kore and Tawi were playing and thought that they were being chased by something. When they realized that it was a game they felt a little embarrassed and decided to make their way to the browsing fields where they settled to feed.

The orphan elephants spent the morning browsing on the northern side of the stockade visiting the baobab tree water hole in the afternoon, where they had a lot of fun playing mud bathing games.
Nelion enjoyed a scratching session on a fallen tree trunk. Arruba went and sat on the tree trunk and watched Nelion for some time, entranced by his scratching game.
