Safaris in Sri Lanka are not for the faint of heart. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime safari experience unlike any other. Sri Lanka has developed into one of the world’s most sought-after safari destinations due to its wealth of national parks, varied wildlife – notably elephants and leopards – and conservation management strategy. 

Sri Lanka has one of the highest rates of biological endemism globally, with 16% of its fauna and 23% of its flora being endemic to the nation. As a result, it’s unsurprising that nothing in Sri Lanka can replace Safaris.

Why are safaris in Sri Lanka the best?

It is densely forested, with over 400 kinds of birds, and is home to its own ‘big five’: leopards, sloth bears, elephants, blue whales, and sperm whales. Additionally, it is one of the few locations in the world where visitors may combine whale viewing and a land safari on the same day.

Twenty-six state-owned national parks encompass 5,734 square kilometers (2,214 square miles), with the Sri Lankan Department of Wildlife Conservation protecting most of the area. Overa Tours traverses the length and breadth of Sri Lanka in pursuit of the finest Sri Lanka safari experiences.
