Kegalle Elephant Conservation Program

Me and my friend really enjoyed working in the elephant orphanage, staying with the host family and everything else in Sri Lanka! Thank you IFRE for providing us with this opportunity.

After finishing the 2-weeks volunteering program we also traveled around the island for 12 days. Michael arranged for the driver, hotels and the itinerary. Everything was nice and perfectly arranged. It was definitely a memorable experience- I'm looking forward to doing this again.

How can this program be improved?
There were many volunteers at the center working with elephants, at times there wasn't enough work for everyone. For example 1 elephant would have 5 volunteers; I think 3 volunteers per elephant would be a good number.
Yes, I recommend this program
