Go on a jeep safari in the Minneriya National Park, which is one of the best places in Sri Lanka to see wild elephants. During the dry season from May to September, elephants come from afar to the park’s large lake, Minneriya tank, to get water. This is known as “The Elephant Gathering” and, in July in particular, several hundred elephants can be seen in one place. It’s a wonderful experience seeing so many elephants together.
The park has abundant wildlife. You can also see crocodiles, monkeys, deer and a lot of different birds. Bears and leopards also live here, but they are very rare and hard to spot. Your knowledgeable guide will help you spot as many interesting animals as possible.
Duration: Approx. 3 hours
The excursion must be booked in advance.
