What people are saying about Elephant Transit Home, Sri Lanka

Absolutely most beautiful tour in Sri Lanka. It is very nice to see free elephants. We encountered 12 on our tour of the National Park. In the end we unfortunately didn't have enough time to see them all because we had also booked a visit to the Elephant Transit Home and the feeding time there was already 2:30 p.m. We also saw other animals such as crocodiles, mongooses, lots of deer and peacocks.

The Safari was super fun and we saw a lot of elephants and other animals. Our driver was really cool and made sure we could take amazing pictures! We would really recommend this tour!
