Departure Date



1 Day



Maximum Seats


Translating to Land of Lakes, the protected Wilpattu National Park is located in the northwest of Sri Lanka and has over 60 lakes and tanks located within its expansive 1,317 sq km of dense forest. Being one of the oldest and the largest parks on the island, only 25% of its area is open for the public, while the rest remains blanketed by untouched nature. Wilpattu is also noted for its archaeological and historical significance, as it was believed that about 500 years ago, Indian Prince Vijaya built the Sinhalese kingdom in a corner of Wilpattu. Wildlife safaris are the most popular excursion in the area. Although it’s open all through the year, the most ideal months are from February to October.
