Wildlife options

Hello.. We are doing a tour and was going to go see the elephant orphanage but after reading trip advisor reviews I am unsure??

Is there anything else we can do wildlifey in the area like a safari or anything?

I thought you got to bottle feed and bathe the elephants but some people say it's cruel.

Please advise xx

Hi there,

Safaris are hours further, closest are Habarana. You can do elephantback rides outside the orphanage. Bathing is in MEF not in Pinawela orphanage.

All the best,
