GAME DRIVES

Take off on a wild safari guided by our expert naturalists in Yala
and Wilpattu national parks, Sri Lanka’s premier game reserves.

Promising an incomparable experience in the wild, you’ll safari twice daily aboard customised Toyota Land Cruisers in the cooler hours of the morning and late afternoon when the chances of spotting wildlife are optimal. Our drivers know the parks inside out and know the best spots for spying elephants, leopards, crocodiles and sloth bears.

Our four-wheel drive jeeps are geared for all terrains, and have been designed to maximise wildlife viewing in absolute comfort. They are also incredibly practical. Each is equipped with a cool box of refreshments and snacks, along with binoculars and wildlife field guides, as well as photographic equipment including battery charging facilities, camera support points, bean bags and arm clamps.

Widely acknowledged as the leopard capital
of the world, Sri Lanka is the place for seeking out
this rare creature,and exciting range of other wildlife.
