Safari, so goodFebruary 25, 2019 in Sri Lanka ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C
The earliest alarm yet at 5.30 am - we need to be waiting at the park's gates for them to open at 6.00! We have our own jeep and driver but all the guides were booked unfortunately so we will just have to keep.our eyes peeled!
It's wonderful to see and, mainly, hear the animals and birds waking up to a new day. The jungle is huge and very wooded with many lakes and is packed with birds. It smells lovely too! By the end we stopped taking pictures of peacocks as we saw soo many!
The best thing was to see an elephant! He was knee deep in a lake eating weeds and we stayed to watch for a long while. Elephants are special - each time a jeep came round the corner and people saw him, their faces broke into childlike smiles, regardless of age.
We also saw water buffalo, a crocodile, many spotted deer, wild boar, mongoose, monitor lizards, frogs and monkeys but the only leopard we spotted was on the gate!Read more
