Sri Lanka In September, offer tourists an opportunity to see wildlife. One of the main attractions is going to be the gathering of elephants,” said Rumy Jaufer, managing director of the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau. “For the past six months, we have conducted a series of theme-oriented promotions. September will be Wildlife Month,” he explained. For him, tourism has great potential for the country’s economy.

For Dirk Grigson, president of the Sri Lanka Association of Inbound Tour Operators, the island nation offers unusual attractions, such as a high concentration of elephants, leopards and whales.

In August, hundreds of elephants come together at a drying reservoir in Minnerriya in north-central Sri Lanka, in what is the largest gathering of Asian elephants in the world.

The Yala National Park is home instead to the largest concentration of leopards in the world, and it is not easy to catch a glimpse of them.

Re: Watch elephants gather in September 7 Years, 3 Months ago  
Thanks for your informative post. Really I have strong feelings to see that elephant gathering, It may be on the new year 2012. The human-elephant conflict appears to have replaced poaching as a major cause of elephant mortality in Sri Lanka. Elephant populations in the wild have been reduced substantially in the past 50 years, during which between 1500 - 3000 elephants may have been killed in the wild.
