Located between Habarana and Polonnaruwa, the 8890 hectares of Minneriya National park is an ideal Eco Tourism location in Sri Lanka. The park consists of mixed evergreen forest and scrub areas and is home to Sri Lanka’s famous wildlife such as Sambur Deer, Leopards and Elephants.
However the central feature of the park is the ancient Minneriya Tank. During the dry season, this tank is an incredible place to observe the Elephants who come to bathe and graze on the grasses as well as the huge flocks of Birds that come to catch fish in the shallow water.
