What you'll do
We will start the Jeep tour from the main entrance of the Park near the car park. Firstly, your driver will escort you to Park ticket counter for you to purchase the relevant entrance tickets to enter the park. Once we go through the standard process of entry into the park, we will venture into the untamed wild of Minneriya which is infamous for the Elephant Gathering. Soon we will make our way to the banks of the stunning Minneriya Reservoir. You will get to see groups of crocodiles resting in the banks or swimming about the lakes, vibrant birds of prey going fishing and also many other birds and animals including herds of elephants visiting to quench their thirst and take a rest. The sight of elephants is the real treat at Minneriya and their unique scent is a good indicator to choose the trails where you are guaranteed to see as many Elephants as possible. Upon completion of the tour, we will bring you back to the entrance of the Park.
