Udawalawe National Park – Day Excursion – Renowned as the best national park to view elephants in Sri Lanka. I’m no expert on elephants, however the elephants at Udawalawe looked slightly smaller than their cousins we’d seen at Yala, and upon asking our guide why? I was told that the elephants of Udawalawe were Swamp Elephants, which I believe to be true.

Yala National Park – Day Excursion – This is truly wild country with plenty Elephas maximus and the elusive Asian Leopard. Yala is known to have the worlds highest density of leopards in the wild, so your chances of seeing one is almost certain. search on for “Yala Leopard”.

    I have been on the Maduganga Boat Safari, the mangroves were very interesting and we had many photo opportunities for taking pictures of the exotic wild life. I recommended the trip!

  2. Absolutely fantastic picture of the Leopards. Is this really Sri Lanka?
