The best Safari Location in Sri Lanka where you can see many animals and birds. You have to stay in the park bungalow - Thummulla - for the best experience. Very few safari jeeps which gives lot of freedom for animals and viewers. So don't...More

We went in the afternoon and saw tons of wildlife and no other jeeps! The scenery was stunning too. Would definitely recommend. Just make sure to bring food and water with you and wear comfortable clothes; it's a long time in a car!

Hi my girlfriend and I are thinking of staying in Arugam Bay between 5 - 9th July this year and would love to do a Safari tour. Could someone advise us how much this would cost us - cost of travelling from Arugam Bay, driver hire, car hire etc or any other costs. I've read about some kind of pilgrimage during July which may reduce the chance of seeing many of the animals, can someone confirm this? Thanks!
