Often we are asked if it is possible to include an Elephant Safari in Minneriya national park extending Sigiriya & Dambulla day tour. It’s one of the best tour combinations adding some extra activity to complete the day.
If you are lucky enough you can see large herds of elephants, sometimes even 300 elephants at once, roaming freely.
The original tour consists of visiting 2 of the 8 Unesco world heritage sites in Sri Lanka. Sigiriya rock fortress, famous citadel and Sri Lanka’s most visited site and the first century built Dambulla cave temple complex. The Dambulla cave monastery is still functional and remains the best-preserved ancient edifice in Sri Lanka.
