Arriving at the Millennium Elephant Foundation was a somewhat surreal experience. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, spectacular landscape, unusual wildlife and of course the magnificent elephants. I have been looking forward to my trip for sometime and can’t quite believe I have arrived!
I have only been here for 4 days and already I have experienced so much. From picking up tons of elephant dung, washing our designated elephant in the river and giving medication in handmade dough balls, to name but a few. It has already exceeded my expectations plus so many more…..It is also great to be able to experience the unique culture of Sri L Lanka, feeling so much more than just a tourist. It is possible to learn so much more from the local people, who are so friendly, making my time here all the more unique.
