Wildlife in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is teeming with wild animals. All travelers will be fascinated by the magnificent view of large herds of elephants, elusive leopards, monkey species, endemic lazy bears, various deer species and much more on Sri Lanka’s wildlife safari. There are many exciting and family-friendly animal safaris and we promise you a great time! Of the 102 mammal species, the majestic elephant is the largest surviving terrestrial mammal. These captivating animals are relatively easy to spot in most parks, large herds of extended families and solitary men on safari with wild animals in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka is also famous for its beautiful solitary leopard. This adaptable predator is best seen at dusk, as it comes out of the shadows of trees to hunt. Other predators found during an animal safari in Sri Lanka include torn bears, golden jackals and Mongooses.
Primates such as common langurs and a variety of monkeys (such as endemic macaque, violet-leaved monkeys and shag-monkey era) demonstrate their notable agility swaying from branch to branch, often in vast troops.
Our 4-wheel drive jeep safaris are held early in the morning and late afternoon, ensuring optimal viewing times. All vehicles are checked before each safari according to the safety standards of the national tour operators.
