adventure safari tours wildlife tours in Sri LankaThis is perhaps the most tiring, and most rewarding day of the entire tour. Starting at your accommodation in Belihuloya, you begin a 20 km long trek to Duwili Ella via some rough terrain through riverine forest. The area is very much alive with all kinds of flora and fauna, including deer, giant squirrels, flying squirrels, and primates. Lunch will be had at the half-way point at Hulan Ella, and will continue towards Duwili Ella. Ella in the local Sinhalese language means waterfall, and both these waterfalls (Hulan Ella and Duwili Ella) are formed by tributaries of the Walawe River. The beautiful Duwili Ella gets its name (Duwili means ‘Dust’) from the cloud of spray resembling a cloud of dust.

The park is also ideal for bird enthusiasts.

safari yala wildlife tours Sri LankaThe Yala National Park is the most visited and second largest national park in Sri Lanka. Made up of five areas – known as blocks – of which two are now open to the public. Situated in the south-eastern dry zone of Sri Lanka, it is famous as the best place in the world to see leopards in the wild. Wildlife Tours Sri Lanka promises the best leopard safari experience, as our experienced naturalists and guides will take you to the areas known for leopard activity. Leopards are nocturnal, so the best chance of seeing one in the wild is either at dawn or at dusk. This experience gives you an evening safari, enabling you to see leopards as they come out of their daytime slumber. Leopards may be the star attraction at Yala, but elephants, sloth bears, deer, jackals, wild boar, and a few hundred varieties of birds can be found throughout the national park.

Cinnamon Wild Hotel – 5 Star

Rukan was wonderful and we enjoyed his careful driving as well as his company throughout our journey. His English is very good and we had great conversations. It was nice to gain insight into the history and culture of Sri Lanka by speaking with him.
Our safari guide in Yala (Kasun) was the best! We saw 6 leopards and 3 sloth bears over the course of 4 outings. Compliments to him and the driver. I was worried that 4 safaris would not be enough, but that turned out not to be the case with their expert tracking skills.

We really enjoyed most of the lodges, especially Kings Pavilion, Chena Huts and Buckingham Place. Great rooms, service, and restaurants. Both Buckingham and Kings Pavilion surprised Rick with birthday cakes either in our room or at dinner. Buckingham also had a special table set up for us with flowers and decorations and the staff presented a birthday card signed by all of them!

All the food was wonderful both at the buffets and when ordering a la carte from menus. Pack meals during safaris were also very good with plenty of variety.

We both had a great time in your beautiful country. Thank you for all your help in planning this adventure. I would definitely recommend Eco Tours to my friends and family if they ever want to visit Sri Lanka. You really made us feel special.
