Also if you go in the afternoon you get the massive herds of elephants - but also the massive herds of tourist jeeps. Do go in the afternoon but I would also totally recommend you also go into the park very early morning as it's magical - literally no other jeeps, your on your own - still plenty of elephants but small groups not the massive herds, but lots of other wildlife that only comes out in the quiet mornings too... we did it after our guide recommended it and it was genuinely magical...

About 35 minutes drive away - you won't find a decent hotel much closer - great place to stay for Minneriya

If you give yourself an hour each way, that is ample. My recommendation is to go in the afternoon around 3 - 4pm. Allow at least 2 hours at the park. Its beautiful and the best time one of year is July - Oct, Elephant Gathering. Enjoy!
