Many elephants can be viewed on the tank bed on any given evening and it’s amazing to enjoy how they drink water, eat and play around the tank.

Getting there
Those who wish to spot the majestic elephants and other exotic wildlife in the park can consider staying at a Habarana resort the likes of Cinnamon Lodge Habarana, from where visiting the park will only take 9 minutes.
