After a goodbye breakfast with Suwadi and Dean, we booked this afternoon’s private safari to Kaudulla National Park.
A relaxing swim in the interestingly shaped pool at the resort, and before we knew it, we had reached our safari departure time of 2pm.
While the safari was expensive, where else on earth can you witness large herds of more than 30 elephants? It was a humbling experience to say the least and not one we will forget in a hurry. The highlight of our visit was being trumpeted at by an angry female as she threw dust into the air with her trunk, at a point when we’d clearly outstayed our welcome with her herd. Only minutes later we watched a reasonably sized bull chase another Jeep full of tourists - hilarious.
We capped off the day with an exceptional buffet. There were so many options, that you’d need a few days to cover everything! The pictures of my 3 courses will hopefully do it justice.Read more
