Wilpattu National Park Safari

Wilpattu National Park is renowned for its more than sixty distinct natural, sand-rimmed water basins or depressions that collect rainwater. It is also historically significant as the landing site of Prince Vijaya in 543 BC, who is credited with founding the Sinhalese nation.

 Situated in the North/West coast lowland dry zone of Sri Lanka, Wilpattu National Park is a habitat for 31 mammal species, including herds of Asian elephants and the elusive Sri Lankan leopards. Additionally, the park hosts a diverse array of hundreds of bird and reptile species, most of which you can encounter during a safari.
