Explore the wondrous wildlife on offer on the eco-diverse island of Sri Lanka.

From the stealthy leopards to the lazy sloth bears, the majestic elephants and the diverse species of birds, you are sure to find adventure no matter what you are looking for.

The best time to visit is when the water tables are getting low and animals come out to the vast lakes to quench their thirst. This is usually between March and October. The world famous Minneriya Elephant gathering for example, happens from the end of July to September. Birdwatching enthusiasts are advised to visit in either November or April when migration is at its peak.
