Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage

The Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage is an orphange, nursery and captive breeding ground for wild Asian elephants located in Pinawala village in Sabaragamuwa Province of Sri Lanka. I had the good fortune to spend a day in and among the greatest land creatures on earth which was an almost religious experience. Nothing I’d ever done in my life prepared me for the feeling that swept through me at being able to reach out and touch these amazing animals. It is truly something I will always remember and when I see the photographs I feel that I’m tranported back in time.
