Want to do something truly unforgettable? Head to Sri Lanka and get stuck in at the Elephant and Community volunteer project. Here you will live in a volunteer house, soaking up the REAL Sri Lankan life style and culture, getting to know the locals and learning to cook incredible dishes. You time will be split between supporting the local underprivileged children, and assisting the mahouts with their elephants. The best bit? Getting stuck in and helping to bathe the elephants!
