Please some help with information to do a safari in Wilpattu

Hello!

We are a Chilean (South america) couple and we are now in sri lanka, we already travel arround 2 weeks here and we want to go to Wilpattu National Park soon (i think is better than yala, we don't like crowdy place). Like is not so turistic is really dificult to find information about that.

So could someone please give some information about cheap safari and where to stay?

We don´t have a lot of money, so we are looking something cheap no luxury one. We just want to do the safari maybe full day.

Please any tips??

Thank you very much!!

Safaris are not cheap. You pay approx. LKR 3,000 entrance fee per person and approx. LKR 6,000 for jeep hire (up to 6-8 persons).

Staying: see the TA list, there are four lodges relatively close to the park. Next best alternatives are Anuradhapura or Kalpitiya but each is 2-3 hours from the park so not an easy combination as the best safaris are 6-9:30 AM and 2:30-6 PM.

All the best,
