Minneriya National Park

Mineriya national park, Minneriya jeep safari

Minneriya National Park is a wild sanctuary located in the north-central province of Sri Lanka. Minneriya Forest was originally declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1938, and Minneriya Wildlife Sanctuary was designated a national park in 1997. In the other national parks in Sri Lanka, you can find a large number of Sri Lankan elephants gathering around grass fields. You can find large gatherings during the dry season to drink water from inside bodies of water. Normally, we recommend that you visit Minneriya National Park from May to October. That period is the normal sunny season in Sri Lanka. In rainy seasons, they won't come outside from the forest and cannot see during that period. There is an elephant corridor in between Minneriya National Park, Kaudulla Park, and Wasgamuwa Park, so elephants roam among these three national parks from time to time. Other than elephants, there are two endemic monkeys in Sri Lanka, large herbivorous mammals such as the Sri Lankan samba deer and Sri Lankan axis deer, rare and endangered species such as the Sri Lankan leopard and Sri Lankan sloth bear, the grey slender Loris, and many kinds of birds.
Minneriya National Park Jeep Safari: According to the details I mentioned above, Minneriya National Park Jeep Safari is one of the most popular activities among tourists who visit Sri Lanka. There are two main time periods to go on a jeep safari, but travellers can also customise at their wn leisure. As a well-experienced tour company in Sri Lanka, we recommend that our guests travel on an early morning jeep safari from 5.30 a.m. to 9.00 a.m. and on an afternoon jeep safari from 2.30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Because it would be a valuable opportunity to observe unique and amazing wild animals in their natural habitats.
