There are more than 200 elephants in this orphanage today. It was opened in 1975 to protect and help elephants that are lost with the hard difficulty of joining new herds around their areas. Elephants here are brought when they were young.
These elephants are taken care through the revenue this place makes though tourists and other donations that are directly given to this place. Some generous citizens also provide milk power packets in large quantities to this place, so they can provide milk endlessly to the young and baby elephants that are kept in this place
Most of these elephants live a delighted and a humbled life, and they are less aggressive compared to the ones found in the wild. This is because they are exposed to humans who work and take care of them every day. They also see hundreds of people visiting them every day. This place is a major attraction and a place that keeps elephants well monitored for everyone to see. They also have a vast area to roam freely sometimes. There are so many iconic sceneries to see here if you want to visit with your family and friends.
