“Superb”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We opted to avoid the Yala crowds and questionable ethics and go to Bundalla. It was superb. For a start only two jeeps so we saw an amazing range of birds - owls, eagles, kingfishers, storks, kites and many more - plus crocs, monkeys, an elephant and hyenas all up close. I'm not a twitcher but this was superb and the setting of lagoons and dunes is great.

“Peacful safari”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Excellent for birders and photographers. Not as crowded and crazy as in Yala NP, the drive in Bundala NP is more relaxing and enjoyable.

“Found our leopard”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We spent 5 hours hours in the park and saw a variety of animals, birds and unique plants, including a leopard up close - she just walked down the road and past our safari vehicle hissing quietly at the clicking cameras. It look us three parks to find one and it was worth it.
