  • What was this a great way to learn more about elephants. Do try to talk someone out there works, then you learn the elephants truly know and you'll get more information about the method. It is nice to see how the elephants are fed and put together a family. Especially the little ones are very nice to see. Important to go so this initiative could continue and a stepping stone to the safari in udawalawe!
