Wildlife Safari in Wilpattu National Park - Afternoon Game Drive

Situated close to the historic city of Anuradhapura in the north west of Sri Lanka, Wilpattu became a National Park in 1938. The park takes its name from the numerous lakes, known as Willu, that are dotted throughout the park. Wilpattu National Park has the unique feature of many natural lakes, which are sand-rimmed water basins or natural depressions in the land that fill with rainwater, creating beautiful lakes. These natural lakes are hotspots for all sorts of animals to gather for a refreshing drink and bathe, especially in the dry summer months. Wildlife in Wilpattu National Park includes 31 species of mammal, including the sloth bear, the Sri Lankan elephant and the elusive leopard. Afternoon safari is the best to spot many animals. <br>• Two way hotel transfers included<br>• Hear commentary from an expert guide<br>• Witness the highest concentration of leopards at Wilpattu

A wonderful site, but be prepared for walking over a huge area without shoes and some areas are rough underfoot. Stones very hot to walk on, so take some old socks to wear.

It was a hot day but the place was empty. We had been told it was best to wear socks when climbing the rock due to the heat. What they don't tell you is that the hand rail gets cooking hot as well! Take two pairs of socks, one for your feet and the other for your hands. You will thank me if it's a hot day.
