Difficult seeing the indian elephants at first, but ended up seeing a whole family plus a leopard in a tree! Bumpy ride, but worth to see the beautiful nature of Sri Lanka.

Best place to sight elephants during monsoon and can do some bird watching..I recommend to do a safari early in the morning or late in the evening.

We were recommended to go to this park on our safari as the elephants had been seen there recently however I believe this can change regularly so ask your tour guide. After a 4 hour jeep drive we must have seen at least 35 elephants and a whole range of birds. Well worth paying for a jeep safari in these... 更多
Went on a prearranged jeep safari with family at Horulu Eco Park which is supposed to be part of the larger Mineriya National Park. We went on a 2 hr safari in the morning between 7 am and 9 am. Was totally disappointed as we could not sight a single animal except a bird or two. Not even the elephants... 更多
