The Aggressor Safari Lodges® is located near Wilpattu and Minneriya National Parks. Guests will be treated to exciting jeep safaris in both parks, seeing the large game of Wilpattu plus many other animals and birds in their natural jungle habitat. Guests will also be amazed at the wonders of Minneriya National Park to visit the largest Asian elephant gathering in the world.
Two World Heritage Sites, the 3rd Century BC ancient city in Anuradhapura, home to the largest stupa (monument housing relics) in the Buddhist world and the 5th Century AD Sigiriya Rock Palace, will be visited which are the most valuable historical monuments of Sri Lanka and known as the 8th Wonder of the World.
And finally, we are thrilled to include a full day jungle excursion to Monkey Kingdom, Sri Lanka’s Primate Center.
