Negombo - Wilpattu. After breakfast we drive along Sri Lanka's picturesque coast to Wilpattu National Park. Located on the west coast of Sri Lanka, Wilpattu is Sri Lanka's largest national park, covering 1085 sq km and extending inland towards the ancient city of Anuradhapura. The lakes and dense woodland of Wilpattu are home to impressive variety of flora and fauna including sloth bears, spotted deer, wild pigs, crocodiles and leopards, Sri Lanka’s top feline predator. This afternoon we go in search of wildlife on our first game drive, in a jeep. This evening we enjoy a tasty BBQ dinner at the camp which is located close to the Southern boundary of Wilpattu National Park, on the boundary of a lake, surrounded by bush forest.

This stunning complex of 5 caves contains over 150 images of Buddha including an impressive 14 metre statue carved out of the cave rock. We continue on to Wasgamuwa to check into our hotel before enjoying an afternoon game drive in Wasgamuwa National Park. The evergreen forest of Wasgamuwa, with its towering trees, is home to large herds of elephants.

Gal Oya is one of the best preserved and least visited national parks in Sri Lanka.

Rich in bio diversity and aquatic life, Gal Oya spans 25,000 hectares of dense evergreen forest, mountains, savannah and lake. This morning we rise early for breakfast before embarking on a boat safari, which is the best way to spot Gal Oya's diverse wildlife, and if we're really lucky we might see the Asian elephant swimming in its natural habitat. We return to the hotel for lunch and to freshen up before an afternoon jeep safari.
