Full description
Spend a day at the largest and one of the oldest National Parks in Sri Lanka - Wilpattu, which is also among the top national parks and world-renowned for its leopard population. The park is unique to others in the country with its dense country woodland and masses of birds, lying inland from the coast in the Northern Province. Meet your guide at your accommodation in Negombo and begin your journey around 6:00 AM. Reach Wilpattu National Park after approximately 4 hours. Wilpattu is 508 square miles (131.694 hectares) and was declared as a National Park in 1938. The special feature of this park is the large number of Villus (lakes), where you can watch wildlife and many species of birds. Leopards and elephant herds are the most famous animals in the park. Spotted Deer, Sambhur, Barking Deer, Wild Boar, Wild Buffalo, Sloth Bear, Mongoose, Crocodile, and Peacocks are also found here. After your safari, enjoy a local lunch at the Puttalam Hotel then return to your accommodation.

Punctual pickup at the hotel, very nice guide and a very safe driver for Sri Lanka. Air-conditioned drive to the park in about 3 hours. Then change to a super safari jeep, a guide from the park drove the jeep. Brilliant trip, we saw many animals and were able to observe them in peace. Buffalo, owl, crocodile, birds, bucks and even a leopard. The guides made every effort to find the animals. The park itself is also very beautiful! Lunch was either before or after the visit to the park. Definitely a successful trip with a real highlight and great organization.
