Around and About

Safari through the bush and wild of Yala National Park on a jeep that braves its tawny roads. Rejoice in the sights of elephants, spotted deer, sambar, crocodiles, toque macaques and exotic birds. With a dash of luck and right timing, you may also catch the retreating figure of a sloth bear or a couple of leopards sunning on a distant tree.

Roughly an hour’s drive from Yala will take you to the bird-wonderland of Bundala National Park, a colourful Arcadia where feathered-friends from all skies flock together.

Placed on the history-drenched sands roughly 30-KM from Yala is the legend-steeped temple of Kataragama while the Situlpawwa Buddhist Monastery lies approximately 15-KM away. Take in the mystic beauty of daily poojas being carried out at Kataragama Temple as a token of honour to deities and the evocative artworks at Situlpawwa. The mesmerizing ancient temple of Kirinda takes a seaside seat on a rocky outcrop.

Sea-kayaking, beach polo, bodysurfing and windsurfing are a few water sports to amuse you with as you stay in the area.
