  Bathing Elephants

I loved it here, There are SOOO many beautiful elephants of all ages.

The Government run Orphanage was set up to look after Orphaned and wild Elephants. There are over 60 in the orphanage. When They are adults more of the elephants become working elephants.

They all troop down to the river twice a day for a spash around & drink, where the Pinnawala restaurant overlooks the river.
