What travelers say:

Amazing place the elephants seem happy and well looked after. we were able to get up very close to them and feed them a delicious fruit that can be bought at a very cheap price of 250 Rs. After feeding the elephants we were able to follow them to the river for baths! unforgettable day!

Additional Information

Introduction

The Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage is located in Pinnawala, not far from Colombo. The facility provides a home for elephants who are homeless: those who have fallen into deep pits or traps, as well as those who were left behind by their herd. The staff care especially for elephants who are seriously injured or sick. Over the years, the orphanage has adopted nearly a hundred elephants. Adult elephants can receive work training, where they help people carry and transport wood. It is a great place for tourists to have a close encounter with elephants.
