I would have thought so, however be prepared for an early start. We have a trip to the Elephant foundation planned in August ( part of a round trip) our departure time from our Hikkaduwa hotel is 4;30am, which will enable us to see their early morning feed hopefully

Yes it's 2 x 4 hours transfer to/from Pinawela. If you want to see afternoon bath departure is much more convenient but you're back 8-9 PM...

All the best,

There is also an Elephant riding, feeding and washing location just 20 mins outside Hikkaduwa in Boosa, have sent many guest there and tried it myself really good, you have to call in advance off season, cost is around 3000rs per person + your transport there
