Wildlife Safari in Wilpattu National Park - Afternoon Game Drive

Situated close to the historic city of Anuradhapura in the north west of Sri Lanka, Wilpattu became a National Park in 1938. The park takes its name from the numerous lakes, known as Willu, that are dotted throughout the park. Wilpattu National Park has the unique feature of many natural lakes, which are sand-rimmed water basins or natural depressions in the land that fill with rainwater, creating beautiful lakes. These natural lakes are hotspots for all sorts of animals to gather for a refreshing drink and bathe, especially in the dry summer months. Wildlife in Wilpattu National Park includes 31 species of mammal, including the sloth bear, the Sri Lankan elephant and the elusive leopard. Afternoon safari is the best to spot many animals. <br>• Two way hotel transfers included<br>• Hear commentary from an expert guide<br>• Witness the highest concentration of leopards at Wilpattu

Ruins also of Isurumuni Raja Maha Viharaya visited which are over 1000 years old. Our guide Taran explained the meanings of the sculptures with out a guide it would not have the same meaning. Well worth the visit

The world famous bodi tree turns out to be an indistinct, bushy tree, behind high fences. No shoes allowed in the complex, as usual, but this gets extremely uncomfortable when the weather is hot. Nothing special in the entire complex, hardly any information in English

It was a pleasant enough place but as a non-Buddhist it didn't mean anything special, unlike the sacred place it means to the locals. I felt as a tourist I was intruding on a very personal Sri Lankan place. I found myself more impressed by the antics of the Giant and Palm Squirrels than taking in the temple. Sorry.

Visiting you can not but be touched by the faith of those visiting for spiritual reasons. If you have no knowledge of Buddhism then a guide is helpful to explain what you are seeing and experiencing. Top tips, no shoes or hats, shoulders and knees to be covered and most folk wear white. Visitors allowed to take photos in most areas, but no selfies with your back to the Buddhas.
