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.

Excellent driver! Safari was great - saw lots of different animals including an elephant. But no bottle water was provided like they promised.

Pünktlicher Pickup im Hotel, sehr netter Guide und ein für Sri Lanka sehr sicherer Fahrer. Klimatisierte Fahrt zum Park in ca. 3 Stunden. Danach Umstieg auf einen super Safari Jeep, ein Guide vom Park ist den Jeep gefahren. Geniale Fahrt, wir haben viele Tiere gesehen und konnten diese in Ruhe beobachten. Buffalo, Eule, Krokodil, Vögel, Böcke und sogar einen Leoparden. Die Guides haben sich alle Mühe gegeben die Tiere zu finden. Auch der Park selbst ist sehr schön! Mittagessen gab es wahlweise vor oder nach dem Parkbesuch. Definitiv ein gelungener Ausflug mit echtem Highlight und super Organisation.

Booked this, thoroughly enjoyed - managed to see all the animals listed (except a bear). Lots of driving, but car was clean, comfortable and air conditioned. The company was accommodating and we asked to start at 8am, (instead of 9:30) and this wasn’t a problem.
