Minneriya National Park

Experience close encounters with jumbos as you embark on an exciting wildlife safari at the Minneriya National Park.  Located just 35 minutes away from the resort, this nature reserve is famous for ‘’ The Gathering’’ where herds of elephants as large as 400 congregate on the banks of the Minneriya Reservoir to satiate their thirst during the dry season. The park is also home to endemic monkeys, leopards and sloth bears among other species.
