The Gems Of Sri-Lanka

On arrival at the Bandaranaike International Airport, you will get your first taste of warm Sri Lankan hospitality and transfer to Kandy. On the way you will visit the Pinnawala Elephants Orphanage.

                                        

 Elephant Orphanage

The Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, established in 1975, commenced with seven orphans. Today some of these orphans enjoy the fortune of seeing their grandchildren born in the same location. The original objective of establishing the orphanage inclined more towards tourism, but it soon became conservation and an educational centre. With the help of local and foreign elephant experts, Pinnawala started a scientific captive-breeding program for elephants. The free movement of the herd enhanced the chances for respective individuals of both sexes to get together and mate. The nearby river played a dominant role in this regard, and in 1984, the first baby of Pinnawala was born.
