What a shame it's not a World Cup Year, as orphan elephant Orwa's ball skills are pretty impressive!

Youngest babies stay at the stockades during heavy rain. Important to keep them warm & dry for fear of pneumonia

Feeding time at the Nursery and Mutara gets to show off her bottle holding skills

Now wild Mpenzi's returned to Voi stockades with a wonderful surprise, a new calf, Impia (Swahili for 'new')

Happy Thursday from the charming Barsilinga!

Barsilinga our latest arrival is a very endearing little fellow who absolutely loves, loves, loves his Keepers
