Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage

The Pinnawela Orphanage has been both an orphanage and breeding ground for wild elephants from the year 1975. As of 2008, there were 84 elephants at the orphanage, with 23 of them having been born in captivity. Although the orphanage simulates a natural habitat for the elephants, the elephants are taken twice a day to the Maha Oya for their bath, and all the baby calves below 3 years of age, are still bottle fed. Whilst most of the elephants are healthy, one is blind, and one, named Sama, has lost her front right leg to a land mine. Bathing and feeding times are very popular with visitors as they are able to help with the feeding and watch the jumbos frolic in the water. Usual bathing hours are 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM and feeding times are about an hour earlier.
