National Parks

May 10, 2014


Since being in Sri Lanka, I have been to five national parks dotted all over the country (Minneriya, Kaudulla, Yala, Bundala and now Sinharaja). During my various safaris I have been fortunate to see a leopard basking in the early morning sun on a rock, a sloth bear feeding high in the treetops; 80 wild […]

Mind your language
