Elephant Orphanage - Pinnawala

See Sri Lanka’s elephants in this amazing sanctuary for the world’s largest land animal alive today.

The orphanage is set against a stunning scenery of palm tree filled jungle and tropical mountains. You can join these endangered gentle giants on their daily plod down to the river for their bath time, then you can watch over them whilst they play. You can even get up close and personal and feed them if you wish, just have a stroke, a little cuddle or give them a wash in the water!

If you're really lucky you may happen to be there in time for feeding the baby elephants with bottle of milk! It’s not your everyday experience and it certainly makes for a day you’ll never forget.

Here are photographs of some of our recent couples' visits to the elephant orphanage, all from summer 2014.
