Itinerary

 

You will be picked up from your beach hotel and then proceed to Pinnawala where you can visit the Elephant Orphanage– The Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage provides visitors with the best chance of seeing a large number of elephants at close quarters. The orphanage was established in 1975 and commenced with seven orphaned elephants. Today some of these orphans enjoy the fortune of seeing their calfs born in the same location. Assisted by local and foreign elephant experts, Pinnawala commenced a successful captive breeding program and the first baby elephant was born in 1984. It is most interesting to visit at feeding time to see the baby elephants being bottle fed and the entire herd taken for a bath thereafter to the river nearby. You will reach Pinnawala at 12:00noon to experience the elephant bathing whilst having lunch at Pinnalanda restaurant and then walk to the elephant park to see the feeding at 1315hrs.
