We had a wonderful morning here. I cant praise this project enough as it is changing how elephants are perceived and used here in Sri Lanka. There is no riding on the elephant at the Freedom Project due to the fact that it is harmful...More

Like most tourists heading to Sri Lanka we wanted to get up close and personal with Elephants and the Elephant Freedom Project is the best place to do this.
Having visited both here and the Millenium Project the Elephant Freedom Project is better. It gives...More
Elephant Freedom Project is for animal lovers: no chains, nobody can ride the elephant, it is free and seems happy there. Great project, great experience, great people! Visit the website to book 1/2 day with lunch, 6500 rupie x pers. and walk+wash+experience the elephant !
Myself and my partner stayed for the night their beautiful home, they made an amazing curry for us! The family is so so lovely and friendly. The experience with the elephant kumari was amazing, recommend 100%.

We visited the project with our two year old son and he cannot stop talking about the beautiful Kumari. He's often intimidated by big animals but he seemed almost instantly at ease by Kumari's gentle nature. This experience was definitely once in a lifetime and...More

We arrived last minute without booking and they accepted us on the afternoon tour which was really nice. The experience of washing and feeding the elephant was incredible, the animal is respected, never harmed, we highly recommend it. We didn’t stay the night.

I did just the morning after staying there the night before, but it was off season and I was the only person staying there, apart from the family. It was a nice experience, but if you’re looking for accommodation more like a hotel, I know other people stayed closer to the coast (like in Galle), and took a car there that morning, which is a long drive, but not impossible. I felt like a morning of bathing, feeding, and walking the elephant was plenty, but you can also do some cultural things around the area if you’re there longer and they’ll also take you to the dung factory place that makes paper and other things out of elephant dung.
