Discover the moments of giants of the earth and study the way they eat, drink, play and behave. These cutest animals are moving within two national parks usually to find their foods and water so we will bring you to the best suited national park (Minneriya or Kaudulla) on the day of your Safari according to the data that we gathered during the previous days.

If you are traveling during the gathering season which is from July to September we can surely show you more than 100 elephants during this experience. Sometimes you might lucky enough to spot around 400 elephants.

This experience will also give you the chances to spot some other animal species as well.

We will offer you bottled water and a small snack along with a drink during the Safari.
