Asian Elephant

‘The Gathering’ (Ranked among the world’s top wildlife spectacles) peaks heading towards September and elephants, sometimes numbering over an awe inspiring three hundred, converge onto the receding shores of Minneriya Tank. Nowhere else in the world will one find such a high concentration of wild Asian Elephants within a few square kilometers. ‘The Gathering’ is a wonderful opportunity for wildlife enthusiasts and casual travellers to observe the social dynamics of elephants. Asian Elephant are seen throughout the year at almost all dry-zone national parks including Uda Walawe, Yala and Wasgamuwa.
