Uda Walawe Elephant Transit Home

The Elephant Transit Home in Uda Walawe rehabilitates orphaned elephant calves before releasing them back into the wild. Visitors can watch the orphaned calves being fed, from the safety of a viewing platform, at one of the four daily feeding sessions, held every three hours from 9am until 6pm. The Elephant Transit Home is connected to Uda Walawe National Park: for much of the day, the orphaned elephants live in the park, in preparation for their eventual release into the wild. To see the calves and large herds of wild elephants in this natural setting, go on a morning or evening jeep safari into Uda Walawe National Park.
