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

As the stupas at Anuradhapura are all impressive, Abhayagiri Dagaba is no different! Wonderful, a real sight for the eye.

This stupa has built by King Walagamba, in order to pay his gratitude towards the Buddhist monks. This area is considered to be carrying the secrets of Theravada Buddhism. This stupa has met-up with several disastrous situations in the past, but with the help of government and the fellow Sri Lankans, the stupa rebuilt in several years back. This Vihara area contains with a museum as well, which hinders the history of Abayagiri Stupa.

There’s some scaffolding on parts of this dagoba at the moment, so you’ll need to find the best vantage point from which to photograph it. The park as a whole is a sprawling complex with ticket checkpoints all over the place. By far the best way to see it all is on a bicycle. We spent an awesome day riding through some beautiful scenery, with monuments peeking through the foliage. Having done Polunnaruwa earlier in our trip, we found Anaradhapura a little disappointing. If you’re planning your itinerary and are unsure if you need a night or two here, I don’t think you do if you’re taking in the far superior park at Polunnaruwa. It’s all a bit same-same here. The two big dagobas are certainly impressive but the rest of the sites aren’t much to write home about. The “sacred bodhi tree” was a let down. Really just a temple for locals. You see very little of the tree itself. All in all, a lovely day out cycling through rural Sri Lanka, but the day will not be remembered for the monuments.
