Owner description: Visit us and experience a special elephant encounter which is suitable for young and old, families, couples and single travelers. This is your chance to get a memorable impression of a day in the life of a Sri Lankan captive elephant who is not being used for working nor riding. The small family run Elephant Freedom Project offers refuge, freedom from work and hardship to the elephant Nilame. At the project he is free from working in the riding industry and the wood logging. The Elephant Freedom Project aims to give Nilame a good and safe home, which is made possible thanks to your visit!
