Tour to Elephant Breeding Center was a part of our package. Our guide Shitaram took us to this place which was little bit far from sauraha. We enjoy watching baby elephants playing and food preparation. It is worthy program in chitwan.

There were about 6 elephants with babies of various ages. The wearher was too hot for us to stay as long as ee would have liked.

All the elephants are chained and appear to be distressed and bored. It upset me and I didn't find the visit enjoyable. I wouldn't return back here again or recommend the experience to anyone I know.

I was heartbroken to see the vast majority of the elephants chained to a post that kept them stuck under a small roof. While they suggested they are freed at points, nothing suggested it was without cost.

Wanted to show elephants up close to my little daughters. We could not only see but touch and feed water to little baby elephants. My daughters absolutely loved the experience. Definitely worth a visit.

A great opportunity to see these amazing animas and get a ride in the forest!! You can also have the chance to share a bath in the river with the elephants. You can enjoy beautiful sunset and explore the village. I will go again first...More

This is truly an awesome place, you really need to visit! Wanna give water to baby elephants? If you are lucky, this could happen here. Especially for kids, but also for grown ups, very special experience to get that close to these amazing animals!
