A friend in India recommended we visit the bear sanctuary and elephant centre. I'm so glad we did. It's a little way out from Āgra and annoying to pay the bird sanctuary entrance fee just to get to the bear place. However we all loved seeing the bears and were glad to have learnt how SOS Wildlife has effectively ended... More

People who work there are very friendly and so nice. When we were there guys kept asking if we want some water it was hot that day. If you are an elephant maniac you must visit there once! We truly had a great time there! Wish could visit there again!!

India is said to have the best wildlife protection laws in the world, and this place provide us the glimpse of the same. Wildlife SOS was established in 1995 by a small group of individuals inspired to start a movement and make lasting change, and they are doing the same amazingly

But there was a security guard who went inside with us unknown of any wildlife knowledge. He was utterly rude and insisted to get back to exit after 5 minutes. Please watch out this place... More
