With the grace of majestic giants and pristine tropical dry forest settings, Minneriya National Park is a perfect spot to spend few hours witnessing one of the most astonishing wildlife spectacles on earth. Capture the golden opportunity to witness the Asia’s largest gathering of mighty elephants, wandering in the green grassland overlooking the beautiful Minneriya reservoir- the heart of the life of the national park. Offering you a range of animals to discover, a Minneriya safari ride is a golden opportunity wildlife enthusiasts should not miss in their visit to Sri Lanka. Renowned as a prominent stopover for wandering elephants searching for food during August and September the dry season, Minneriya national park attracts up to 300 giants from the neighbouring national parks.
