Habarana Sri Lanka

Elephant rides and safaris in the Minneriya and Kaudulla wildlife sanctuaries are what the small city of Habarana, also within easy reach of the ancient rock fortress of Sigiriya, is all about.
Also hosting some of the best hotels in Sri Lanka, and with excellent cultural-triangle transport links, Habarana combines history and hedonism as a perfect backdrop to any tropical island adventure holiday.
But it is the elephant rides that are the highpoint of any visit here, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal with this mighty beast, whose wild and untamed cousins still roam in many of Sri Lanka’s wild and untamed jungles.
