The accomplished naturalist guides here are waiting to show you the virgin lands and wild animals of Gal Oya. Every safari promises to be thrilling and can deliver the unexpected.
Taking a boat safari on Sri Lanka’s largest lake gives you a chance to discover wildlife from a whole new perspective. This is the only experience in Sri Lanka that allows you to spot wildlife from the water; a unique way to immerse yourself in the animals’ habitats. With a little luck you could spot elephants swimming between islands or bathing at the lake’s edge. Birdlife is exceptional on the lake and you can be sure to glimpse white-bellied sea eagles, grey, and purple herons, and several species of cormorant. Migratory birds swell their ranks during the months of December to April.
