Wild Lotus Half Day Safari

Timings: 5:15am- 10am or 1:15 pm-sunset

Itinerary: Our safari jeeps will pick you up from the villa and arrive to the ticket center with a goal of entering the park at either 6 am or 2 pm. Leopards are most active at sunrise and sunset when it is cooler so we will look for this elusive creature at that time.

 

After a few hours, we’ll take a short break at Patanangalla

beach or Manik River. We will re-start our game drive after everyone had a break, hoping to spot elephants, crocodiles and other wildlife along the way.

Rates include: All entrance fees, game drive with an English speaking driver guide in our customized Land Rover safari jeep, use of binoculars and guide books.

 

Not included: tips for driver/guide
