My wife and I were excited about this visit as we are quite passionate about wildlife and the welfare of animals.

I must say I love the fact the this place exists and it's great that they are doing all they can to protect such beautiful animals.

The feeding is fun to watch and the information centre is very interesting and we learnt some nice facts.

I would say you'd probably spend 30/45 mins here.

500 rupees may seem like a lot but it's helping keep this place going to I wouldn't be to hung up on that.

Keep up the good work.

The team do a great job in looking after baby and young elephants. Feeding them twice daily, and they are so cute when they come to drink. Showing their individuality and personalities

wonderful to see elephant babies feeded with milk. Help is needed to sponsor this important project.

The orphanage is a lovely little place to visit, especially for children. The babies are so sweet and it is lovely to see their enthusiasm when getting fed. Worth a look.
