Evening Jeep Safari Tour give you a chance to see mostly larger elephant gathering than Morning tour as they come out of the forest to eat grass on the banks of Minneriya Tank & drink water. Also for the daily bath. See other birds and animals also. 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.

If you have ever been on a safari you will know that this is just not a good trip. Apparently there are 2 areas in the park and one is more expensive than the other. Our driver took us to the cheaper one - we didn't really get a choice as he had booked that beforehand - so I can't comment on the other. This was just one jeep following another which meant that we just didn't see anything. You had to stand up to see at all and then you got dust in your eyes because the jeep was hot on the tail of the one in front. They took everyone to a hill which you climbed - for what - who knows. If they are going to be serious about providing safaris they need to seriously re think how they do this. It was dreadful. We saw more elephants on the road than we did in the park. Then we were told that we needed to give our guide a huge tip to show our appreciation. We cancelled our Yala safari after this safari. We were told that it would again be one jeep following another. We decided that we would rather miss seeing a leopard than doing this again.

Our guide was excellent and spotted things we would have never seen. We saw the most beautiful herd of elephants and lost count of how many! I would recommend 100%

What an experience we had! Not only was the overall experience one of a life time but our guide was exceptional! The ability he had to know where to go to get up close and the best angles to see the elephant herds was just outstanding. Nit only this but he was able to point out small lizards on the ground and birds of prey up on the tree branches water, refreshments AND cold cloths were supplied. Diffinatly worth booking with these guys if your considering doing a safari in the area.
