Elephant Gathering (01st Aug - 30th Sept)
The lure to all these magnificent beasts are the lush grasses revealed by the receding waters of the Minneriya Tank, a reservoir built in the third century. It is an unforgettable sight and a must see – groups of a hundreds of elephants are repeatedly sighted and it is a unique opportunity to see so many elephants close-up in their natural habitat, feeding, fighting, courting, and caring for their young.
