Bentota Stories and Tips


Taking a Ride Photo, Bentota, Sri Lanka

Kapuri is a 23 year old lady. She is very fond of tourists, and enjoys having her nose petted. Foe 225 Rupees (about $2.50) you can take a ride on her though Bentota Beaches Park Grounds and out to the beaches. On the masters command she will kneel to the ground to allow you to hop on. The ride was wobbly, and her back bone was strong and huge (guys you need to protect yourself, or be super cautious). On the Beach, Kapuri will go near the water but will not enter: salt water is not good for her. Overall, I am glad we took our elephant ride out in the open rather than in a ring at the elephant orphanage.
