The elephant orphanage located in Pinnawala is home to many of these gentle giants who have been rescued as they have been at risk of poachers. The orphanage provides a home as well as a safe sanctuary to raise awareness about the conservation of these beautiful animals. Many of the memorable experiences include witnessing herds of elephants stride down the pathways on their way to their daily baths. You will have the opportunity to capture many amazing images of elephants bathing in the sun and be entertained by the younger more adventurous ones getting up to mischief. A highlight of the day includes watching the baby elephants feeding off their mothers and the young ones being fed through a baby’s bottle.
You will also have the opportunity to pat and take photographs with the elephants. It is truly and amazing experience.
