Elephant Freedom Project Questions & Answers

Brighton, United Kingdom

Hi All,

We are hoping to go to Sri Lanka and Maldives for our honeymoon. Can I ask how you built going to the Freedom project into your itinerary? Did you organise separate hotels in local areas? Did you go straight there from the airport or work your way over?

I'm just trying to figure out the best way to do it! we would like just one day at the project.

thanks very much!

We stayed in Bentota (2 hrs from Colombo) and booked a driver to take us to EFP and back, it was 3hrs from there and back and cost around $100. From Colombo it is around 2 hours. EFP say they can arrange transport from Colombo or Kandy, worth contacting them depending on where you want to stay

Hi, there. We opted for a whole day experience in EFP so we asked them to arrange also accommodation with them. The night before and the night after we stayed at their house. The room was pretty basic but we didn´t care as the priority was an elephant experience for us and all the people in EFP who were very nice.

The next day we were leaving Sri Lanka so the owners arrange a taxi for us to Negombo.
