It was absolutely fantastic! Few days we were in Uduwalawa National Park which was also beautiful and we saw like 5 elephants. But this trip to Wasgamuwa was completely different level! We saw around 40 elephants including babies and they were so close to us we could touch them

We did the morning safari private tour. We saw all the big animals and a lot of bird life. The guide and driver were very nice and we ended up doing more than an hour longer than advertised without asking which was very nice of them. They never made the experience feel rushed
