When it comes to wildlife, Sri Lanka once again reigns supreme over Thailand. The island is one of the most diverse and extensive ecosystems in the world and contains 26 National Parks providing visitors the chance to see the stunning wildlife up-close.
To mention a few highlights: Yala National Park has the highest population density of leopard in the world, providing a once in a lifetime chance to see the thrilling predator in the wild. Minneriya National Park is home to hundreds of elephants, all of which travel together to the grass plains during the summer months in what is known as “The Gathering”. Sri Lanka’s oceans are teeming with exotic marine life, including the largest ever creature – the Blue Whale! With large populations and very high encounter rates, the South coast of Sri Lanka is considered the best place in the world to see the Blue Whale. You’ll also have the opportunity to see Sperm Whales, the occasional Killer Whale and an array of dolphins!
