Full description
After meeting your driver and guide in Colombo, you’ll head off into the splendor of Wilpattu National Park, sprawling over 508 square miles of marshlands, plains, and forests. After a roughly 3.5-hour drive, you’ll arrive at the park, ready to take in the natural beauty of the area.

As you move through Wilpattu in a safari-style Jeep, you’ll have the opportunity to view elephants, sloth bears, leopards, water buffaloes, monitor lizards, crocodiles, pythons — and much, much more. Keep your eyes peeled as you move between the diverse environments of the park, spotting water fowl around the array of natural lakes throughout the park.

Around lunchtime, you’ll dine on a packed meal from a local Sri Lankan restaurant with the expanse of the park as a stunning backdrop. After exploring the park and catching glimpses of animals that most only see in photos, you’ll head back to Colombo, enriched by a full day of natural wonders.
