Pinnawala

The main attraction in Pinnawala is undoubtedly its elephant orphanage. Once a remote set of coconut plantations, the orphanage has changed the look and purpose of this small village, where an abundance of fresh water from the rivers helps create an ideal habitat for the nearly 100 elephants that call this place home. Visitors can observing the daily routine in the sanctuary, with the elephants congregating in the river to bathe and play, and staff members bottle-feeding the elephant calves reared on site.
