Trip Summary

This project was started because the owners of the elephants there could no longer look after them. It aims to care for the elephants and their mahouts who rely entirely on their elephants for their own survival. The project works to slowly and continuously improve the wellbeing of the elephants by educating the tourists who come to visit, the elephant keepers (mahouts) and the local community. The aim of the project is to promote humane behaviour  towards the working elephants of Sri Lanka by improving their living conditions and working towards better elephant welfare.  

As well as a hands-on experience you will learn about what it takes to look after an elephant including health checks and finding out how to weigh an elephant without even attempting to move it! Two afternoons a week, you’ll support local underprivileged children by teaching English and other useful skills.

You will be working with domesticated Asian elephants, getting to know these majestic animals. You will work with the elephant keepers – locally known as mahouts - helping with the daily care that is essential to keeping these animals happy and healthy. You’ll also assist with tourist visits; bringing income to the project.

You will also support local underprivileged children by teaching English and other useful skills. You will be able to provide the children with not only English and Maths lessons but also to help with confidence, leadership and 'life' skills.

Trip itinerary

When you arrive into Colombo you will be met by a member of the in-country team and taken straight to your home near Kegalle for your time at the project. Depending on what time you arrive you will either go straight to your room for a sleep or be briefly shown around and have introductions at the project.

The next day will start with a detailed orientation, explaining the project, an introduction to Sri Lanka, the teaching and also the other trips we have scheduled. You will have the chance to meet the other volunteers and the in-country team is always on hand if you need anything else.

You will have the chance to visit Pinnawala - just down the road - to spend 3 - 4 hours walking around the elephant centre and watching the elephants bathe in the river, if you're lucky. There is also the chance for you to do a bit of souvenir shopping. Please note that you will not be volunteering at the elephant centre.

The following morning you will head for Kandy, the cultural capital of Sri Lanka where you will visit the Temple of the Tooth, Buddha on the hill, Kandy Lake and in the evening watch a traditional Kandy dancing show.

Now that you have seen some of Sri Lanka’s cultural elements you will have a day trekking into the local jungles for a chance to see some of the country's abundant wildlife such as monkeys, bird and insect species, many of which you won’t find anywhere else.

Not only will you have the great activities over these past few days but you will also be given lots of information about Sri Lanka and the basics of the language as you go.

The first Friday of your stay will be your first chance to start working with the mahouts and elephants, starting with the basics like cleaning up after and cleaning the elephants. Your weekends are free to either relax or explore more of this amazing country.

Please note: that excursions depend on the weather conditions and may be rescheduled if need be. 

From now on you can truly immerse yourself in the project. You will rise early and have breakfast before you set of to meet the mahouts and assist with any elephant health checks that are required before leading the elephants to the water for a quick bath. After breakfast you will help out in the garden as well as planting and weeding (this is season dependent). 

After a well earned tea break you’ll help to clean the elephant beds and make them a nice fresh bed for the night. You’ll then stop for lunch before assisting the mahouts with the tourists. During the afternoon you will have a chance to bathe the elephants and help feed them. You’ll help the mahouts with further care of the elephants and tourist activities before tucking the elephants in for the day and going on to learn Sinhalese or teach English to kids in the afternoons. There is also a question and answer time with the mahouts which will help you to know your elephant better. You will be amazed as to how unique each elephant is with their own personalities.

Elephants cost a lot of money to keep. Most elephant safaris actually rent the elephants including mahouts and food supplies. To pay for keeping the elephants substantial funding is required. Traditionally this income is generated from offering elephant encounters to tourists which can include riding the great giant, but volunteers visiting the project also create a form of income. All elephant riding is carried out within the animal welfare guidelines and is in the elephants natural habitat. 

As the project receives paying tourists your role will be to help the staff, assisting with the work of the mahouts when required. By the time you have finished your time at the project you should have a good understanding of the life of mahouts and elephants in Sri Lanka, plus some basic elephant communication skills too. 

  • On Mondays from 4pm you can learn Singhalese (Sri Lankan language).
  • At 4pm on Tuesday and Thursday you’ll support local underprivileged children by helping to teach English and other useful skills. There are some very poor families in the local area and they cannot afford to provide the additional tuition that will really help their child’s future. You may also be able to teach adults whom greatly appreciate the chance to improve their English. The children are generally from ages 5 to 18 and will be divided into groups of three
  • On Wednesdays from 10.30 to 12.00 you will have Sinhala cooking classes where you will be able to eat your delicious self cooked food. From 16.00 you can help teaching the local children and adults English and enjoy a variety of games.
  • On Fridays you will stop early to give you a bit more time for the weekend.
Excluded:
To the girls home (orphanage) costs 500 LKR return by tuktuk
To the disabled home costs 800 LKR return by tuktuk. A bus also goes for much less.

Please note: The aim is to keep you busy and entertained but please bear in mind that plans can change as they often have to when working outdoors and with animals! Remember, the more flexible you are, the more you will get out of the project. 

Destination Information

This great project is on the outskirts of Kegalle, a busy little town with lots of shops and eating establishments. If you plan to explore further afield in your free time, Kegalle is a good place to catch a cheap local bus to places like Kandy, with its world famous Temple of the Tooth. Kegalle is known for its large rubber plantations, and crops such as coffee, cocoa, and spices. The local train station offers connections to some of the island's best sites as well as the fast train to Colombo.

You'll love the slower pace of life round here and if you enjoy birdwatching don't forget your binoculars!

Everything that you could want from a volunteer experience, Sri Lanka has it. Working with the elephants was fantastic, as were the excursions and time spent with the disabled home. Rosiee and Amal were perfect hosts and I really enjoyed my whole time out there. It provided an incredible experience that I will remember forever. I can't wait to return to beautiful Sri Lanka

No, just wish I had more time out there to travel around more at weekends

Tips for other travellers?

1. Take a good mosquito repellent 2. Embrace the strangeness, Sri Lankan culture is friendly and vibrant but can take some adjusting too, so bare with it and you won't be disappointed 3. Look at the itinerary and plan ahead, especially for the hot weather

I loved every minute of my trip and there was always something to do. It was amazing being so close to the elephants, being able to bathe, feed and scrub them. The co-ordinator was so friendly and welcoming and we kept in touch even after I left. It was a great experience being able to go on the excursions and learning about the culture whilst also being able to travel on the weekend.

I very much enjoyed the trip and what went on. It was a great experience don't get me wrong, however I felt it was less elephant orientated than the programme suggested. We also never got a sri lanka lesson and i felt we had to ask for rides and wash the elephants than encouraged to do so.

Is there anything else you would have liked to have added to your itinerary?

that the food is just sri lanka you do not get a western chose.

Tips for other travellers?

bring toilet role- they do not provide any be careful with your money- my money got stolen at the orphanage be very very careful. someone got super super burnt when here- don't be silly put SUN CREAM ON

Any other comments?

it was an amazing experience and i have done nothing but praise the experience however i few things in the programme were not correct. Like i said above i felt like we had to ask to see the elephants more and there was a lot of lying around. We were able to go away which made the trip so much better as we could see sri lanka more which was amazing. my money unfortunately got stolen at the girls orphanage with £20 worth taken from my purse. It was my mistake as I had left it on the side in my camera bag, but still, straight away after we left I told our organiser and when i asked were the girls confronted i got a 'we can't ask, we will just get told you shouldn't leave your things around'. It wasn't the amount of money that went missing that bothered me it was just the principle. But then again it was an experience and I do understand that. i also feel that the elephants where we were staying are bored and not stimulated enough. When i asked why do the elephant sway (almost like dancing) i was told they just do it because they are happy. When returning home i realised that is not the case and elephants do that when not stimulated and bored. It just felt like the elephants were very much used for money and not necessarily having the 'best life' possible. i understand they need tourists i do, it was just an observation. the food was also not western at all, which if told before wouldn't have bothered me so much but it was very spicy for me. breakfast everyday was omlet until we begged could we just have fruit or something a little different. personally i also didn't like when we went out on our day trips we went to a certain restaurant that rosie picked (fine fair enough), but instead of letting us look at the menu we got a 'do you want rice or noodles' and that was it. Just a bit of choice would be nice. I also didn't like the fact we were not allowed to socialise with the mahoots (i can't spell sorry), not that i wanted too just thought it was a bit strange we were told we can talk to them during the day, but it is band to socialise to them at night time. Honestly i did love it, just some improvement is all.

riding the elephants and bath them, trips to the disabled home talking with the mahouts.

Is there anything else you would have liked to have added to your itinerary?

overall experience is great, but be proactive. If you want to do something you have to start it by your own. There should be a schedule for each day with some work ideas listed. e.g: monday --> elephants bed, cleaning of the whole hause, sinhala lessons, eco garden,... tuesday--> elephants bed, bathing elephant, grils home,... wednesday--> elephants bed, do some information gathering about mahouts, elephants... and do posters for the tourists, cooking class, disabled home, ... thursday--> elephants bed, lesson about elephant commands from the mahouts, eco garden,... .... AND the first day there should be a good orientation about the whole camp, the surroundings, names of the whole staff and mahouts, eating times, .... but otherwise it was awesome. great staff, there always friendly and try to help if there is a problem. P.S.: Rossie, Dissa and Amarasiri are awesome peaple. without them it would not have been the same.

Tips for other travellers?

just be open minded, smile and start talking with everybody. They LOVE it. pack some insect repelent spray.

Getting to look after and ride an elephant, being part of the community and getting to know the locals. Feeding a baby elephant at Pinnwela elephant orphanage.

Is there anything else you would have liked to have added to your itinerary?

I thought that the itinerary was very cleverly worded. I was expecting there to be more than 3 elephants and I hadn't realised I would be volunteering for a money making tourist attraction. As for the word conservation am not sure where you get that from as wasn't sure how I was conserving anything! I also thought you took the pictures of the accommodation very cleverly considering the building was being worked on and wasn't finished!

Tips for other travellers?

Take an old pair of closed in shoes to wear when cleaning the elephant beds. You get the most out of this project if you are pro active and look for ways to improve the safari. Take old clothes for working as they get wet daily.

Any other comments?

I really enjoyed the trips which were all part of the cost. They were definitely well worth while. I though Rosiee our coordinator was very helpful and friendly. I was there for four weeks and she didn't have 1 day off and could be contacted 24 hrs a day. What a star!
