Where to see elephants in Sri Lanka
Elephants are a sort of national symbol in Sri Lanka, and with good reason – it’s estimated that Sri Lanka has the largest concentration of elephants in all of Asia. The islanders are incredibly serious about preservation, and have been setting aside protected land for thousands and thousands of years, which means there’s ample opportunity to see elephants in their natural habitats, especially the native Sri Lankan elephant, one of the three subspecies of Asian elephants.
If seeing a live elephant in action is on your bucket list , you’ve come to the right place. Here are some top spots to catch a glimpse of an elephant in Sri Lanka.
