4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
Observe the heartfelt conservation work at Elephant Transit Home, which raises orphaned young elephants with the ultimate goal of their joining a wild herd in the national park. Watch the excited young elephants frolic and run for their feed of milk and foliage. Consider combining your visit here with a tour of the park, where you'll have a chance to see "graduates" of the center roaming free with their kind.
