The Elephant Transition Project or home (ETH) is as the name suggests a well-maintained transit home where baby elephants are rescued when the mother has died or been lost in the jungle. They stay here to old enough to be released back into the wild. Visiting hours are normally during feeding time and lasts approx 15-20 minutes, the transit home is not set up for the amusement of tourist so do not expect to get involved with the feeding process or be up close and personal with the elephants, well worth the small entrance fee to see the feeding in a small aluminium hut, can get crowded and hot. The transit home is attached to the Udawalawe National Park and has an information centre, where you have an option to donate to the project.
