Old and big Zoo in Colombo

It's just half an hour drive from Colombo. It s the biggest Zoo in Sri Lanka which worth visiting. For SAARC adult they charge LKR 700 and LKR 350 for a kid. Sri Lankans fair is less than that. Worth for money. Various species can be seen in birds, reptiles and mammals. Very well maintained and wide open spaces for clear sights. Lots of natural open area inside with seating arrangements in case you want to take a break. Refreshments also available. May be you should check with authorities if any elephant performance or sea lion performance scheduled for a day and plan accordingly, Please don't forget to buy a souvenir from the Souvenir shop. Government is planning to open the Zoo until 8:00 pm From 2017 September.

Elephant Orphanage

A herd of 40 elephants bathing in river, walking in a procession and then feeding the baby elephants with bottle of milk was an experience that cannot be explained.
