    Hi, Sorry we didn't book with Thomas Cook but most companies had private transfers either by taxi or mini bus and the driver was waiting for us. The same going home no problems at all.

    Hi peeps, visiting this hotel soon on our first trip to Sri Lanka, we are really looking forward to it! Elephants are one of the reason we chose Sri Lanka this year and I'd love to get to see them in the wild. Pinnewala orphanage would be the most logical choice but I'm very uneasy about that. I believe they still offer elephant rides, continue to use the barbed sticks and many of the males elephants are chained for weeks to control them during their period of musth. While we wholly appreciate that a living needs to be made within the circumstances people have I absolutely wouldn't want to support any of the above. Therefore it seems the only other option may be an overnight stay somewhere to visit a conservation site. I just wondered if anyone had previously experienced this and how you got on? One of our party up has a bad back and travelling for long distances would very much need to be worth the effort. Any advice or experience of seeing elephants other than the orphanage would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance
