Bird & Wild-Life

Bird & Wild-Life

A visit to Sri Lanka is a must for all wildlife enthusiasts. Sri Lanka is home to many animals including leopards, elephants, turtles, and blue whales and many more.

Sri Lanka’s wildlife ranges from wild elephants and leopards to sea turtles and a vast variety of birds. Yala National Park is known to have the highest density of leopards in the world. National parks and bird sanctuaries have the best opportunities to see animals in their natural habitat. Stay alert for a sighting of the endangered sloth bear or leopard, watch hundreds of elephants feeding and washing in a tank or lagoon during “the gathering”; or be amazed by the egg-laying sea turtles. Our tours include many possibilities for wildlife watching and birding.
