Game Drives with Sri Lanka Big Game Safaris
We offer a unique Wilpattu National Park safari with experienced drivers and naturalists, expert in all things wild.
The Wilpattu National Park safari drive is about 7km, and takes about 5 – 10 minutes in a safari jeep. You will journey past paddy fields and farmland, as this area is home to several small villages. The land has an important feature known as ‘Villus’, which is a complex of wetlands, nourishing a wide variety of animal and plant life, and is therefore vital to the wildlife of the area. The Wilpattu National Park contains a large population of Sri Lankan Leopards, Sri Lankan Elephants, and other attractive wildlife of Sri Lanka. If you are visiting in May / June, you might even see Sri Lankan Sloth Bears eating fruit off the top branches of the giant Palu Trees which are scattered throughout the Wilpattu National Park Sri Lanka!
Those who wish to do both morning and evening safaris, have the option of going back to the camp to have an exquisite lunch and return in time for the evening safari. Alternatively, you may extend the morning safari to a full day safari. We are happy to pack you a delicious lunch in the event you wish to do so.
We are also equipped to provide customised services such as a safari for children, family safari, honeymoon safari, photography safari, vacation safari etc. This can be arranged at a nominal fee.
Please note that although the tents are set up far from local villages, and even though this area is very quiet, the distant sound of a radio or temple chant may sometimes carry to the campsite. These occurrences are rare, but we would like to keep our guests informed in case such situations arise.
