Voi Unit  February   7, 2018 This morning the stockade dependant orphans came running out of their stockades and grabbed their milk bottles, emptying them in a matter of seconds. They then enjoyed the supplements that had been put out for them after which they engaged in socializing games around the stockade compound.

Bada sharpened his tusks on a rock boulder and after that he engaged Tundani head on in a pushing match. The game became very engaging making it difficult to predict the outcome. Tahri came in and brought an end to their contest when she went up to Tundani and touched him with her trunk. The two older orphans were so touched by her tenderness and care that they stopped their fighting.

The rest of the days browsing activities were peaceful with the orphan elephants visiting the baobab water hole in the afternoon, to drink milk, water and enjoy a mud bath.
