Minneriya Safari

Minneriya National Park
If you love to see the elephants in their own natural habitat, Minneriya and Kaudulla National Parks are worth visiting. There you can also potentially witness the largest gathering of Asian elephants in the world, during a Sri Lanka wildlife safari. Try to plan your wildlife safari to witness the elephant gathering in Sri Lanka in Minneriya National Park or Kaudulla National Park. The two parks, though separate, are next to each other and divided by the “elephant corridor” jungle that stands between them. The elephant population in this region frequently travels between the two.

Safari in
Minneriya National Park

The Gathering is believed to be the largest gathering of Asian elephants in the world and takes place during the dry season from June/July to September, when the rivers dry up and the elephants are forced to travel to the large reservoirs in Minneriya and Kaudulla to bathe, find drinking water and graze on fresh grass. These Reservoirs are also surrounded by jungle and dense shrubs which provide shelter for the elephants during hot days. In the afternoons, the elephants begin to emerge in their herds, a few at at a time until there are dozens (and sometimes even hundreds) hanging out on the plains.
