In the afternoon Exclusive jeep safari in Minneriya National park (Optional). More spectacular than possibly any other wildlife event in Sri Lanka is what is known as the ‘Gathering’. During the dry season (July to September) when water supplies start to diminish, more and more animals congregate around the Minneriya reservoir where the grasses are rich and fertile. For several months of this drought season different herds of wild elephants gather at the reservoir. They come from areas beyond Minneriya, and at any one time it is possible to witness up to 300 to 400 elephants. They are not migrating, they are simply ‘gathering’, to socialize, bathe, drink, feed and possibly mate. Other time visit Eco park or the Kaudulla Wild life national park.
