Wildlife Safaris in Sri Lanka

Experience the Wild at its best! Over 15 National Parks and sanctuaries situated all over the island covering approximately 8% of the country’s land mass. Here you are guaranteed to have close encounters with elephant, leopard, sloth bear, deer, monkey, wild boar, wild buffalo and several varieties of reptiles, amphibians and a large number of endemic and migratory bird species in their natural habitat. Of the many National Parks, Yala, Wilpattu, Gal Oya and Udawalawe are the more popular ones. Just imagine being able to actually see and experience Wild Elephants grazing with their calves or Leopard cubs playing playfully in the sunshine, how about watching the animals at the waterhole while they take a few sips before retiring for the night or observing the beauty of a peacock in flight.
