We spent a fantastic two nights in Wasgamuwa, exploring the wildlife, enjoying the comforts of the camp and swimming in the nearby river. We had some fantastic encounters with large herds of elephants and the birds are fantastic within the park. Unlike the more famous parks in Sri Lanka the number of jeeps in the park is minimal so we...

Mahoora had set this tent site up just for four of us and we were deep within the park in very good tents. We had the same naturalist that we had had in Willipatu (excellent) and a driver who was great fun and very experienced. The elephants here were the best we saw in the country. We even got trumpeted...

We stayed at a Mahoora arranged site for one night at Wasgamuwa, and without any stretch of the following phrase - had the best time ever. The campsite sat inside the reserve, right on the edge of Mahaweli river. The tent was arranged to perfection, and was closing in on a proper hotel room, rather than a tent. The camp...

This was not the case. Our safari parts were good, our guide very clever and knowledgable but he muttered and i started to give up asking him to...

Fantastic experience. It was pity that the summer season 2012 have been too much dry (it didn't rain from more than two months) for which it has not been possible to see all the animals that the park offered. So many elephants but so many kinds of birds …no bears. We did not wait to meet leopards and so it...
