A highlight of our recent 3 week trip touring Sri Lanka was the safari at Wilpattu. Our driver and two guides were so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the flora and fauna. We spotted 7 Leopards in just 24 hours, as well as sloth bears, jackals, monkeys,hares, deer and many different species of bird. The camp-site was perfect. Our tent was very comfortable (glamping rather than camping really). The team back at the camp-site were all welcoming and warm. Food was excellent and our evening sitting under the stars, with the camp-site illuminated by flaming torches, sipping gin and tonics while our barbecue was prepared was magical. FANTASTIC!!
