Weather and trip advice

Hi my husband and i are staying at The Habarana Lodge (or Cinnamon Lodge) in Habarana for 8 days from 12 September. Anyone has anyone any idea of what the weather is like then? We have a chauffer driven car at our disposal the whole time we're there which sounds great, where are the best places to see?, we both would love to see the elephants, any advice gratefully received. Thanks.

Hi,

Hopefully you have a good climate but may have a chance for few rains as well. Mostly mornings are ok. Cinnamon lodge is an ideal place & have a good nature unit with qualified naturalists.

You could visit Dambulla cave temple,Sigiriya rock fortress,Anuradhapura,Polonnaruwa while your stay. About safaris you could visit Kaudulla & Minneriya Parks to see wild elephants. The hotel park is also an ideal place do some bird watching in the morning & in the evening. If you need help identifying them always seek the assistance of the naturalists of the hotel. if you need any help talk to Hearth,Tharaka or Nilantha at Nature unit. Also talk Nileesha at the GRE.
