What you should know

There are various modes of transport that one can take to reach Minneriya National Park. The nearest domestic airport to the national park is Sigiriya Airport at a distance of around 24 km. It takes around half an hour via private cab. Galoya Junction Railway Station is the nearest rail head which is at a distance of 23 km and one will take around half an hour to reach the national park from here. One can take public buses or hire a private taxi from any major city of Sri Lanka to reach the Minneriya National Park.

A guide can perfectly gauge where the greatest concentrations of elephants are at any given time as these beasts migrate between various parks.

You do not need to train up for this activity.

The best months to visit are July, August, September, October, November

We recommend the above period because you would have:

  • Better chance to spot animals
  • Good weather

Early morning safaris are generally best for birds and late afternoon for elephants. A full day safari covers both Minneriya and Kaudulla national park.
