Minneriya National Park, Habarana

(1,200+ reviews on the web)
National Park Wildlife Area
The largest known meeting place for Asian elephants, Minneriya National Park provides the natural corridor amidst tropical dry mixed evergreen forests that attract herds of these wild creatures. Observe the largest mammal as it searches for food and water while making its way to the shores of a rainwater reservoir. Bring a pair of binoculars to examine more than 170 species of birds, like the woodsand piper, rufus woodpecker, or the lesser adjutant. The wildlife reserve also harbors many endemic amphibians and reptiles. Remember to keep a safe distance from the mugger crocodile, regardless of its relatively calm nature. Temperatures in the park can soar, so bring extra water. Use our Habarana family vacation planner to add Minneriya National Park and other attractions to your Habarana vacation plans.
