Были в приюте для брошенных и покалеченных слонов. Самое интересное - это как слонов ведут купаться на речку! Полицейские перекрывают шоссе, и слоны в сопровождении смотрителей идут по деревенской улице к реке. Там слонам разрешают поплескаться и помыться, принять пылевые ванны

Dear visitor, A fantastic day from Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage! Thank you very much for taking time and sharing your wonderful description with us on tripadvisor. We are so fascinated with your satisfying visit and we give our heartiest gratitude for your perfect rating. Indeed Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage provides care and shelter for abandoned and crippled elephants and our ultimate effort is wellbeing of the elephants. Elephant bathing event at the riverside is a must visit place at PEO and it always provides a unique experience to the visitors who love to see how they bathe, swim, splash and interact with each other in water. As you said, it is located within walking distance of the institution and elephants are taken by our caretakers. In addition, we have facilitated mud and sand pits to wallow mud and sand as they are fond of play with those materials. In addition, mud baths serve a critical purpose for elephants. They are too hard to bear hot temperature with their few hair and sweat glands and they have to find another way to cool off. Romping around in mud not only cools them, but also provides a protective layer to shield their body from the sun ray’s and it is also relief them from insect bites. So while thanking again for your wonderful description, we hope to welcome you back to the PEO for more memorable visit. Thank You. From, PEO Team.

Ужасное зрелище! Ни за что нельзя это оплачивать! Это никакой не приют, это зоопарк с ужасным обращением! Слоев в цепях, их бьют палками с железными наконечниками. Под мифом истории о приюте раненных, потерянных и прочих слонов, просто вымогают деньги. Билет стоит 3000 рублей с

Dear visitor, A fantastic day from Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage! We thank you for your feedback. Actually, it is sorry to learn your review since you have not understood the role of this institute correctly. This is a government institute, under the Department of National Zoological Gardens in Sri Lanka and this was established 1975 to provide shelter and care for orphaned elephants who were stranded in the wild to many reasons. Since then we are continuing that great task and currently it has expanded our service on breeding and conservation of Asian elephants in Sri Lanka. It has been bred 71 elephants in the facility up to now respectively. We facilitate everything all 83 elephants what they need at the facility and we always strive to provide with an environment that is similar to their natural habitat. They have access to roam freely, bathe in the river and perform their natural behaviors in the facility and elephant welfare is our main priority. The sick elephants receive veterinary care in a separate space and we are always looking for the mental and physical health of all animals. We never treat animals badly in the custody and chains and ankush are to limit certain bull elephants as some extent. Actually, our mahouts were trained and know how to use this equipment on animals safely. It further ensures visitors and animals safety too. In addition, it is happy to say that we are going to set the animals free of chains in three large enclosures at the orphanage, which was constructed already. Furthermore, the maintenance cost is very high in the facility and it is absolutely huge task maintaining the institute. As we are a government institution, the government incurs cost for animals and for the maintenance of the institute. Also, please note that our finance ministry decides the entry fees for government institutions and we are not in a position to change the entry fee. We hope you will understand the role at PEO and hope to see you once again in future. Thank you. From PEO Team.

Посещению питомника уделите минимум половину дня! Это огромное удовольствие не только для деток, но и для взрослых, повидавших многое в жизни... Наблюдая за поведением этих гигантов, начинаешь понимать выражения "спокойный как слон" и "довольный как слоник"! Из минусов - будьте

Смотреть в слоновнике особо нечего. Мы попали на крайне редкое зрелище - спаривание слонов. Есть возможность покормить слонов. Самое интересное в данном месте - гон слонов на купание и, собственно, купание. Но даже у детей, посещение слоновника не вызвало ярких эмоций. Разве

Dear Irina, A fantastic day from Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage! Thank you very much for visiting Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and writing your experience on tripadvisor. Actually, it is happy to know that you were experienced elephant mating sight at PEO and we are so happy to give that rare experience to you. Here it needs to say we have given enough facilities to maintain their social life freely at PEO and elephants in here are spending most of the time performing their natural behaviors: chasing, mounting, wrestling, sparring mating etc. Engaging these natural behaviors has contributed to the success of the captive breeding programme in the facility and it has recorded 71 natural births since 1984 respectively under this facility. In addition, visitors have an opportunity to feed the elephants at the fruit-feeding event and can see the elephant race for swimming at the riverside too. We welcome you back to the PEO again in future for a more memorable visit. Thank you. From PEO Team.

Мы очень ждали прибытия сюда. Хотели увидеть слонов. Увидели измученных животных в зоопарке. И кучку жадных помогателей, которые накинулись на нас сразу. Рассказываю по прядку. Мы приехали и пошли в сторону отеля «Elephant bay», к нам подбежал мужчина, который сообщил, что мы

Dear visitor, A fantastic day from Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage! Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. Here, we assume that the place you mentioned is not PEO and if it was our place, you were with a valid ticket to visit the riverside too. In addition to it, it needs to say that our elephants are not look like exhausted elephants and they always show their majesty with their playful behaviors in the facility: all the elephants in here are very active and perform their natural behaviors throughout the day in the facility. As a dedicated institute for elephant conservation In Sri Lanka, we daily focus an attention to their mental and physical health conditions and every time we are alert on them. Our ultimate effort is keep them happy as far as possible with these limited facilities and it has allowed to maintain, their social life as a herd by providing many opportunities to exhibit their social behaviors like wild elephants. Secondly, please note, this is a government institute under the Department of National Zoological Gardens in Sri Lanka and hotels around the institution are owned by private vendors. However, we finally say this is a well-organized elephant orphanage, we use occasionally chains, and bull hooks to manage certain aggressive bull elephants in the facility since we should always bound to ensure the safety of visitors and animals as a responsible government institute. We welcome you back to PEO for a memorable visit again. Thank you. From, PEO Team.
