Evening Jeep Safari gives you a chance to see mostly larger elephant gathering compared to Morning Jeep Safari. Also other animals like Deers, water Buffalo, Crocodile, Iguana, Monkeys as well as birds like peacock, pelican, Eagles & etc. If there are very fewer elephants in Minneriya National Park, as an alternative we go to Kaudulla National Park without an additional fee as the elephants keep migrating between these parks.

Safari with Asanka

Basic English
4 years experience
Asanka is the most passionate guide, very kind and funny, and you can really see he loves and knows his job perfectly. He is well informed about the Asian Elephant’s behaviour, habitat, and their surrounding wildlife. Respecting the elephants, he does not drive too close and also tries his best to avoid the massive crowd of jeeps.
