Elephant Gathering in Minneriya

Lay claim to one of the most beautiful sights you will ever see anywhere in the world. Each year in August and September, the elephant gatherings take place at the Minneriya Reservoir at the National Park in Sri Lanka’s North Central Province. The dry season prevalent during that time drive the mammals to the tank in search of water and fertile ground.

As a result, herds of as much as 300 to 400 elephants can be seen during these months and provide a sight to behold the visitor to the Minneriya National Park. Elephants can be seen bathing, eating, playing and living their daily lives nearby this ancient reservoir. This awesome spectacle is considered to be the largest gatherings of elephants at a given time, in Asia. Talk to a tour operator about becoming a part of one of the most inspiring moments you will ever experience; you won’t regret it.
