Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, Pinnawala

1.8
#1 of 13 in Wildlife in Sabaragamuwa Province
Visit Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and witness the daily life of its pachyderm residents. Meet the rescued or abandoned elephants of all ages, see them play and bathe in the river, and watch the youngest of the herd being bottle-fed. You can help wash an elephant, feed them their daily fruit portions, or take photos with them, but a tip for their carer will probably be expected. Put Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage into our Pinnawala vacation planning site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Pinnawala.
