Edie was there again to lead the youngsters out, having spent the night with them. At the Eastern side of Mazinga Hill, they met up with a wild herd of elephants, Edie moving ahead to introduce the babies to the wild Matriarch, who welcomed them for a joint feeding session. They spent two hours feeding together peacefully until Edie rounded up her charges to take them to the waterhole. During the night Natumiís group came to the Stockade, but Edie was far too comfortable with the babies, and refused to follow them when they left.
The Keepers went to investigate the report of a lone calf, presumed to be an orphan, which had been seen by a visitor at the Voi Safari Lodge. During our search we came across an open Sewage tank, which posed a serious threat to wildlife who could fall in, and were shocked to see a wild cow and her small calf drinking the sewage water. This was reported to the Lodge Management, who promised to do something about it.
