Stop At: Wilpattu National Park, Putlam - Anuradhapura Road, Anuradhapura 50000 Sri Lanka
08:00: After breakfast, you will be driven to Wilpattu national park for a memorable Game drive.
A safari in Wilpattu is very different from any of the other major national parks. Visitor numbers remain very low and even in high season, it's common for there to be no more than a handful of tourist jeeps in the park at any one time. The unique feature of this park is the existence of "Willus" (Natural lakes) - Natural, which gives Wilpattu a wonderful, and genuine, wilderness feeling. Here you can also find huge swathes of dense, dry country woodland, masses of birds and, with a little luck, an impressive array of wildlife including leopards, sloth bears, spotted deer, wild pigs, and crocodiles.
Duration: 4 hours
