Only the Big 3?
Sri Lanka has earned a significant reputation for it’s not so elusive leopard in the recent past, being the only place on earth right now where sightings of the elusive leopards can be done without a major effort. Sadly with this ( due to lack of processes, policies and lack of understanding / education ) the situation can be widely abused affecting the very species that bring the visitors much thrill and excitement.
We asked ourselves if a Safari in Sri Lanka is for the leopard, the Elephant and the Sloth bear ? Do we need to necessarily chase these Big 3 in Sri Lankan wilderness?
Here’s what we found !
‘ An Experience”!
It’s an experience, one that you never forget , even if you experience it over an over again! and one that you want to comeback again and again!
Embracing the experience of wilderness in Sri Lanka is an addiction!. Well a good one of course ! it can be both time consuming and expensive if you are looking for a bit of luxury and expertise when you go around, It’s still worth it. I had the privilege of seeing some the Big and the Little things in Wilpattu National Park with Mahoora Safari Camping.
