My girlfriend and I really wanted to see some elephants whilst out here in Sri Lanka but didn't fancy lining the governments pockets so opted for the Millenium Elephant Foundation and it has been the highlight of our trip. The place has a nice, small and friendly feel to it. The elephants appear to be very happy and looked after well and our guide (older, more stern guy) was great - he took photos of us on the elephants with my camera and actually refused a tip!!! (Which I made him take)
Hopefully more people will visit this great charity and help the team their carry on with the great work that they are doing.
To get to ride and wash an elephant for 2000 rupees (a tenner!!) you can not go wrong. A must if you're in Sri Lanka
