Meet the clients on arrival at Colombo airport and Transfer to Kandy via Pinnawala. The Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage, established in 1975, commenced with seven orphans. Today some of these orphans enjoy the fortune of seeing their grandchildren born in the same location. The original objective of establishing the orphanage inclined more towards tourism, but is soon became a conservation and educational centre. With the help of local and foreign elephant experts, Pinnawela started a scientific captive-breeding programme for elephants. The free movement of the herd enhanced the chances for respective individuals of both sexes to get together and mate. The nearby river played a dominant role in this regard, and in 1984, the first baby of Pinnawela was born. The success story of Pinnawela has drawn the attention of scientists from all over the world. A considerable number of books and research articles on Pinnawela have been published in several languages. The members of the Pinnawela herd have been filmed, videoed and photographed thousands of times by professionals. Kandy was the last capital of the Sri Lankan kings and is a World Heritage Site. The name “Kandy” conjures visions of plendor and magnificence. Many of the legends, traditions and folklore are still lovingly kept alive.

Old clock tower and several British built colonial buildings. Other places of interest are a Hindu

Supposed to be one of the coolest places in the Island, but it is really just like an English spring day,
Although the temperature does drop at night. All around Nuwara Eliya you will see evidence of the
British influence, houses like country cottages or Queen Ann style mansions. The Victoria Park, in the
Middle of the town, is a lovely place for a stroll or a picnic and is also good for Birding as you get some
