Sri Lankan Safari’s

Meet the local wildlife on board a safari

Though Sri Lanka is quite a small island nation, it is one of the world’s most biodiverse hotspots. Home to more than 90 species of mammals and 3200 species of flowering plants, it boasts an extensive list of unique wildlife.

Among the best places to see the local flora and fauna is Yala National Park, where you can come up close with untamed wildlife. Another is Wilpattu National Park, home to 30-odd species of mammals including the Sri Lankan elephant, Sri Lankan leopard, Sri Lankan sloth bear, spotted deer, buffalo, sambar and mongoose.

Suffice to say, it’s a memorable experience for avid nature lovers and first-time visitors alike.
