11th Day: Wilpattu National Park

Early in the morning we drove towards Wilpattu National Park for 2.5 hours               

On the way there was beautiful nature to see, Buddhism and Hinduism


The first thing you could see was a small museum and then the journey started

The wildlife is very extensive and the landscape is very varied. Sometimes jungle, sometimes a bit of desert and steppe as well as wetlands and lakes can be found there

Water Buffalo / Crocodile


Very difficult to photograph these birds. They are quickly gone and without the right equipment you cannot get good pictures


Malabar pied hornbill / Green bee-eater


The tour in the park lasted 4-5 hours.

Unfortunately we have not seen all animals. I think it was the wrong time of year for leopards and other great animals. But still the trip was just great.


And a good end to our trip. Our first long-distance trip and our first time in Asia. Due the positive experiences, despite a lot of rain, our further travel pleasure has often moved to Asia, but Sri Lanka remains our pearl of Asia and will be visited again.
