The facility is very nicely developed & the Bears are well taken care off.You... More

Go to the elephant rescue centre. You can feed elephants some bananas. The mahouts are patient. Please donate even a little money as this goes to feed for the elephants. Good work at the Bear Rescue Centre. Keep it up. Thank you for educating us.

I just spent a week volunteering at Wildlife SOS Agra working with the Sloth Bears and elephants. What a great learning experience, one that I will cherish and remember forever. Thanks Wildlife SOS and all of the amazing staff and animals!

Wildlife SOS have managed to rescue all the dancing bears in India and their hard work can be seen by how good the bears look and live now. The staff and... More

We visited recently and had a lovely guide called Prat, he was extremely informative and engaging. Was a bit hot when we went so lots of the bears were feeling the heat too! We didn't get to see the elephants as it is a bit further away but if the workers there were as nice as at the bear facility... More

Their hospitality was humbling, showing me around their wildlife rescue facilities (for bears and a separate campus 15 minutes away that we later visited for elephants) as a one-on-one tour, and even providing lunch. These guides were fantastic - they... More

My husband and I visited Elephant Haven and the Sloth Bear Rescue on June 1, 2014. I contacted Wildlife SOS to schedule private tours of both facilities. They were very responsive, kind, and more than accomodating to our schedule. We met our guide from Wildlife SOS at the Bear Sanctuary at 7:30am and drove to Elephant Haven. We arrived and... More
