Calling of the Wild - Wildlife Safaris
The wild out backs of Sri Lanka with its high plant diversity and endemism invites wildlife and nature enthusiasts to a magnificent exhibition of nature’s wonders displayed dramatically in the depths of the dense green jungles. Take a wildlife tour with expert naturalist/guides to observe the diverse wildlife offering each park is famed for. Wildlife safaris in Sri Lanka are often described as probably the finest outside Africa, especially if you wish to see the Big Four namely Elephant, Leopard, Sloth Bear and the Blue Whale all in one visit and with the least hours of travel time.
Extend the wildlife experience further by spending the night under canvas in the thick jungle. Pick from a luxury camping experience to a truly rustic camp-out. Wake up to the sounds of the wild; observe the birds and the smaller mammals at your doorstep, indulge in some great photography, join in the preparation of meals and leave for an early safari, long before the crowds come in. At the end of the day enjoy sun-downers while discussing the days exploits before returning back for a sumptuous BBQ by a roaring campfire.
The major National Parks are YALA famed for Leopard & Bear sightings, WILPATTU for its unique natural lakes and wildlife, UDAWALAWE, MINNERIYA, WASGAMUWA and GALOYA for elephant sighting.
