When travelling with your family from Colombo or Negombo to Kandy, don't miss to have a break at Pinnawela. Kids in particular will love to see the elephants coming down the street and taking their bath. Though the state-run elephant orphanage is Pinnawela's main attraction due to the sheer number of elephants, the nearby private elephant camps are also worth visiting, because they allow kids to come in closer contact with elephants, having a ride or washing them. Instead, the main activity for children in the Elephant Orphanage is the bottle-feeding of baby elephants.
