Sri Lankan Elephants

There are many places and many different ways in which you can observe Sri Lankan Elephants. A wildlife safari in the Udawalawe National Park is highly recommended as this is the only National Park in Sri Lanka where an elephant sighting is guaranteed on each and every game drive. Alternatively you could also go to the Minneriya National Park where ‘The Gathering’ takes place.

The gathering of elephants in the Minneriya National Park is the largest annually recurring concentration of wild elephants in the world. It is rated at 6th place in Lonely Planet’s Top Ten Wildlife spectacles with over 300 elephants being regularly witnessed. This natural phenomenon occurs during the months of August through to end October.

You could also pay a visit to the Gal Oya National Park which is the only place where you can go on a boat safari and witness The Crossing. The Crossing occurs when Sri Lankan Elephants swim from one island to another at the Gal Oya National Park.
