Dates and Fees

The project runs throughout the year. You can come any time during the entire year, every year! Contact us if any questions.

Your visiting fee really is a way supporting the project and help us to cover the massive costs involved in maintaining the grounds, renting & feeding the elephant(s) and employing our team. Unlike riding places we don't allow many many people on a daily basis (paying 20$ each for a 10 minute ride). Your project fee is our main source of funding. Thanks to your visit our elephant(s) will continue to live a better life.

Project days and fee

You can reach the project by bus/train/tuktuk. From the airport or Negombo it takes about 2-2.5 hours. From Kandy about 1.5 hours.

If you like more comfort and less hassle we would love to arrange transport by AC car/van for you. From the airport the pickup cost is 40 USD. From Negombo to the project costs 50 USD and from Kandy to the project costs 30 USD.

Project days

The project runs throughout the year and is open every day.
