Minneriya National Park
Minneriya is located in the Cultural Triangle and is set around a large reservoir that serves as a watering hole for a plethora of mammals and birdlife. It is famous for seeing elephants in the wild, especially during the elephant gathering that takes place in August and September when 150-200 elephants converge here. You’ll also see deer and 150 species of birdlife. Leopard does exist here, but sightings are few and far between.
