Wildlife Expeditions

Endless adventures await

Sri Lanka is home to a wide variety of wildlife and there’s no doubt whether it is considered the name of a playground for animals and nature enthusiasts. The majority of the island’s wildlife can be found in national parks, the two most important of which are Ruhunu and Wilpattu. They’re mostly densely forested and are the ideal places for visitors to watch elephants. The best time to visit the wildlife in Sri Lanka is between December and May. There can be irregular rain showers early in the year, but you can also spot large herds of elephants with their little calves. Not only that, but at this time of year, you can see the lovely peacocks dancing in the rain which is worth visiting to see. 

Wilpattu, Gal Oya, Udawalawe, and Lahugala are four other national parks that serve you amazing vibes of the mother of nature and are naturally designed with towering lush green trees,  natural tanks where vast flocks of water birds and herds of wild animals come to quench their thirst.
