Minneriya National Park

Minneriya national park is located 182 kilometers away from Colombo, in the North Central Plains of Sri Lanka. The major city closest to Minneriya National Park is Polonnaruwa. The recently renovated, the ancient Minneriya rainwater reservoir irrigates a considerable area of the district of Polonnaruwa and it is the focal point of the Minneriya National Park.

May to October is the best period to visit Minneriya National Park in view of the famous gathering of the wild elephant herds. The gathering is documented as the largest known meeting place of Asian elephants in the world. During the dry season of August to September each year, herds up to 300 elephants can be seen within a few square kilometers of the vast Minneriya reservoir.

This elephant gathering is a thrilling spectacle that would be remembered for rest of the life of all those who were fortunate enough to witness it. 24 species of mammals and over 170 species of birds have been recorded here and out of the 25 species of reptiles recorded in the park, eight are endemic.

Yala National Park

Yala Wildlife National Park or Ruhuna National Park is the second largest but most famous national park in Sri Lanka. It is located about 300 kilometers from Colombo and most diehard wildlife enthusiast will tell you that it is the best place to spot Asian elephants and leopards in Sri Lanka. Over 100 species of birds and 32 species of mammals have been recorded here and the park is considered as a large bio-diversity hotspot.

Yala National Park paths run through a spectrum of terrains from dense to scrub jungle, open savannah-type to semi-arid areas, rock pools, ravines, and freshwater lakes strewn with more than one prominent rocky outcrops. It is also run through a snaking coastline where the wildlife behaves in an unconcerned and truly wild way and has ceased to take alarm and flee at the sight of humans but by no means docile. With over one hundred and fifty square miles of territory, traversing in Yala without a wildlife department guide is prohibited.

The Asian elephant, leopard, black-bear, along with crocodiles are the most common sights. While peacocks, hornbills, and the gray languor monkeys’ may keep you company along the route with their ceaseless cries. The buffalo, another unsung denizen of Yala National Park, can be unpredictable, easily riled, and extremely dangerous with their sharp horns, which are quite common in the park.

Yala National Park east or better known as Kumana National Park is bird watchers paradise with rarities like ceylon shamas, paradise flycatchers, red-faced malkoha, great thick-knee, and not so rare peacocks adorning the paths during dawn and dusk.

Food

You will be served breakfasts and dinners. You are allowed to bring into the country duty-free 1.5 liters of spirits, two bottles of wine, a quarter-liter of toilet water. Tap water is not safe to drink and boiling as well as filtering are sometimes done too hastily in some hotels and restaurants, so the best solution is to drink bottled water.

There are now many brands available, mostly using spring water from the highlands of the island. Please make sure that the bottle carries an SLS certification and that the seal is broken only in your presence. It is advisable that you beware of ice unless you are satisfied that it has not been made from tap water.

Please remember the tap water as you may be tempted to use to rinse out your mouth after brushing your teeth because it is unsafe. You may keep a bottle of water in your bathroom for this purpose.
