About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Minneriya National park, Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka

Your safari will start at 5:30 am if you choose the Morning Safari options; or at 2:30 pm if you choose the Evening Safari option. If your hotel is within a 5km radius to the entrance gate, you will also receive a complimentary pickup from your hotel. If not, you will meet your guide at the entrance guide during your selected departure time.

The park has many land types and growth. Wetlands mix in with agricultural land and rocky outcrops, and forests walk hand in hand with scrublands. This also means that the types of wildlife and birds that live in the park or visit it are quite varied.

You may get to see a crocodile or even an extremely rare grey slender loris if you’re lucky. A little herd of deer may visit the Minneriya reservoir as you watch early in the morning. If you plan your safari to the months of August, September or October you might get a chance to see the elephant congregation named the ‘Elephant Gathering’ with its collective number of over 150 elephants in one place. It’s said that the elephants arrive from all surrounding areas for this gathering annually.

If you opt for the evening safari, which is the best time to see this park, you can also see the elephants taking their daily bath and watch the many different kinds of birds heading off to their nests at the end of the day.

After you complete your half-day watching nature in action, you will return back to the hotel. If you select the morning tour option you will finish your tour at 8:30am. If you select the evening tour option you will finish the tour at 5:30 pm. If your hotel is within a 5km radius of the entrance gate you will receive a complimentary drop-off right to your hotel as well.

Please Advise which safari would you like to go on when you making the booking.
