Thanks to our guide Srimal we had a great bird safari trip! Srimal is without any doubt the the best and most charming guide around. If you consider visiting Bundala, be sure to contact him via Khsrimal@yahoo.com or 0094779599397!

Just for all the people who commented.
BUNDALA is one of best Wet Land in the world.
