Personal highlights

  1. Lunugamvehera National Park: alternative when Yala is closed
  2. Yala National Park: elephants and leopards (temporarily closed)
  3. Dead Forest: killed by floods, left behind as lifeless trunks
  4. Elephants: running freely on the road between the parks
  5. Leopards: famous for the highest density in the world!
