One of the best facilities for animals in need I have ever seen. Though I had visited Agra many time, I did not know about the facility. They really take care of the animals, who were looking well fed and happy.

Spent 4 days visiting and helping out at the Elephant Conservation Center and 1/2 day at the Sloth Bear Sanctuary. Days started by walking with the female elephants, cutting fruit for them, washing them, feeding them and just plain watching them. Visited the males while they receive their daily medical treatments - wounds are horrific. Visited the bears and heard... More

Me and a group of friends got the amazing chance to visit Wildlife SOS. We learned a lot about how the elephants were being treated very poorly and how SOS saved them. The staff was very friendly and we got the chance to feed and pet the elephants. This is a great place and they are doing great things to... More

A friend and I visited the Elephant Sanctuary in Mathura (near Agra) for a full day tour with the elephants. Our taxi driver was confused and first took us to the Sloth Bear location so a staff member there gave us a quick walk around the property to see a few bears before we continued on to the Elephant Sanctuary....

This place is for elephants those who have been rescued from their deport-able lives. They are well maintained and rescued from their bad days. You can also see bears along with other jungle animals. You need guide to enjoy the safari

Signs of previous mistreatment are evident but they now look happy and enjoy their time spent with the many visitors that arrive daily.

This facility is clearly doing incredible work for rehabilitating sloth bears. We were guided around a small section of the facility by a non-English speaking security guard - including an informational video the whole trip took about 20 minutes. We went there expecting to see elephants, as the TripAdvisor photos lead you to believe, but there are no elephants there.... More

Wildlife SOS needs to given kudos for their job of managing the elephants. Most of the elephants have had a traumatic life and this organization tries to alleviate it. No fanfare and just action. Went there unannounced and to my surprise the place looked so serene and peaceful with these gentle creatures being unto themselves. I believe there are opportunities... More
