Voi Unit  February   4, 2018 This morning the stockade dependant orphans teamed up in groups of friends and played games around the stockade compound before heading out to browse. It is quickly becoming quite dry and the orphan’s moved slowly making sure to get as much vegetation as they could until it was time for the noon milk feed and mud bath.

Today Panda introduced a dust bathing game while out in the fields and tried to entice the others to join her, but they were reluctant to do so as they were fixated on their browsing activities. The orphan herd visited the baobab mud bath in the afternoon in groups of five, downing their milk bottle before having a drink of water after which they enjoyed.

Laikipia came to join the juniors at the mud bath and they came running out of the water upon seeing him approaching as at first they did not know it was him. When they realized it was their Ex Orphan friend they came to greet him with Ndii and Ishaq-B getting particularly close. Later the dependent orphans returned to the browsing fields while Laikipia made his way to the Mzima Spring-Mombasa water pipe line area.
