Minneriya National Park – Great Elephant Gathering

I got lucky and happened to be in Sri Lanka at the right time to witness the start of the Great Elephant Gathering. Each year when the water starts to run out during the dry season, hundreds of elephants migrate to the Minneriya National Park where there's still enough water. You can hire a jeep and tour the park, witnessing large herds of elephants all over the place, as well as some smaller animals like monkey, lots of birds, rabbits, deer, and apparently sometimes leopards and crocodiles.
