  • We went to Bundala National Park and we were delighted. We had chosen to visit him with Chaminda, one afternoon from 3pm. Very friendly guide, he told us the animals to watch: crocodiles, birds of all kinds, pelicans, varans, turtles... and we had the chance to see 2 elephants. What we enjoyed very much in this Safari is the fact that there are not many jeeps. Indeed in 3h, we crossed 4 jeeps! Great time. If you want to contact Chaminda, he is very responsive.
