Sure the Taj is great but this is amazing. We only had a short amount of time but Robin was great and helped us to see the bears and elephants in the short amount of time we had available. We only wish we had a longer visit, but are already planning a return visit for a longer period of time.... More

These animals all have a second chance at life and it was an honor to meet the dedicated staff that help ensure these animals do have a second chance. You could just feel the passion in both settings and the... More

I have been visiting the facility almost every month for the past two years and each time I am amazed at the dedication of the staff and management. The Bears and Elephants are happy and healthy and its a real joy to go there. They feel safe and secure and loved.

They rescue all kinds of wildlife, and educate the population exploiting them to get the problem at the root. Visiting their center contributes to their wonderful and life-saving work so I definitely advise everyone to visit. On top of... More

Back for our second visit to Wildlife SOS's bear and elephant centres outside Agra. The staff couldn't have been friendlier and more helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The care and empathy shown not only for the elephants and bears (many of whom have had traumatic lives) but also for other wildlife and domestic animals brought to the facility was... More
