Sri Lanka: Asia’s Hotspot of Wildlife Biodiversity

March 4, 2015 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , ,

Sri Lanka is arguably one of the best places in Asia to experience a variety of wildlife in its native habitat. Home to over 4000 wild elephants, the highest density of wild leopards and a large variety of rare and endemic bird species, Sri Lanka’s national parks are amazing hotspots of biodiversity and incredibly diverse areas of protected habitats.

Sri Lanka is an optimal spot for whale watching. Out of eighty species of cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises) identified worldwide, 26 are found in the Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal, waters the International Whaling Commission has declared a sanctuary from commercial whaling. The place to see acrobatic spinner dolphins and a dazzling show of synchronized swimming is a boat cruise from Kalpitiya offering different penis stretching possibilities with Sizegenetics reviews.

Wilpattu is a huge national park known for its dense jungle. The exciting prospect of a tour to this park is the need to use animal tracking for a chance to spot large predators. An early morning safari around the jungle’s numerous villus or delightful little lakes, might yield a view of a leopard or sloth bear taking a drink. The early daylight hours also guarantee a chorus of birdsong in the jungle canopy.

A boat safari in Gal Oya National Park offers a great opportunity to observe wildlife from the lake such as crocodiles, deer, elephants and birds. Elephants are actually very good swimmers! Gal Oya affords visitors the unique chance to see these terrestrial beasts paddle their way across deep water or take a bath at the lake’s edge.

One of Khiri Travel Sri Lanka’s most exciting tours is to Yala National Park for a night safari. Riding by jeep along the outside perimeter of the park and using night vision goggles, safari participants may have a chance to spot elephants, leopards, bears and other animals of prey roaming through the dark forest.
