My husband booked this trip for us as I have a love of elephants. We didn't really know what to expect and were not disappointed. Everyone at the project was so friendly and welcoming that from the minute we arrived we were made to feel at home. We spent such an amazing week

My boyfriend and I were evaluating which elephant orphanage to visit. Even though this one has only two (adorable) elephants we decided to come here cause of its reviews. Tim started this venture because he found that elephants were treated badly and trained to be tourist

I had a fantastic time working on the project. The family we stayed with were so welcoming and I was so sad to leave. We were very looked after. The experience opened my eyes to a new culture and has changed my view on a lot of things since my return. I would recommend this

Hi Coupe12, it was really great to have you at the project. So much is still happening to make the sanctuary even better for our elephants Sujee and Washtu. I guess that when you see them play with their toys or swimming in the river you must recall how great it was to be there. I certainly hope we may welcome you again as the family, Tim, Amarasiri and the rest of the team had a blast with you all here in Sri Lanka!
