If anyone would like to have an experience working with the carers of the bear and elephant sanctuary, then I would recommend this entirely. To actually participate is an experience and truly rewarding.

Spent the day learning about what these lovely creatures have had to endure and how the sanctuary has transformed their lives. Great day out! Definitely worth the trip to both of staying in Agra.

Spent the day here. Once again its heartbreaking to see what we do to animals for our entertainment and profit. Thankfully Wildlife SOS rescue sloth beers from the cruel entertainment of dancing bears and give them a happy retirement

We had an excellent visit to the Elephant refuge! Abi took us around and educated us with the facility and their goals! He was very nice to us and explained it all well. I highly recommend a visit!

What a place, and what sad yet uplifting stories we heard of these beautiful creatures. The staff work so hard and with such care. More support is needed so the conservation can continue. It was the best best place to visit and learn.

Visiting Wildlife SOS Bear and Elephant sanctuary was my main motivation for coming to India, and it didn't disappoint. Myself and my friend visited on our own and were met by Abi, who took us around the centre and explained all of the vital work that they do. It was very informative and we got to ask questions, feed to... More
