Important facts about Wildlife Safaris in Sri Lanka

Sri Lankan Safaris

Things you need to know about Safaris, beforehand.

Sri Lanka is a must visit Safari destination in the world. A small island nation filled with hundreds of endemic species, is a big draw to do a safari. The best way to have a wildlife encounter is to take a Safari Game Drive in a National park in Sri Lanka. Below you can find some of the most valuable information that nobody tells beforehand. I am sure this will clear any doubt you having what to expect on the tour itself.

It is definitely a bumpy ride.

Well, This is wilderness, so do not expect a comfortable ride like an Expressway, jeeps have comfortable seats with local standard and have pretty good suspensions, however, they can't absorb a sudden jerk as, a high performance vehicles handle shocks.

So hold on to something and do not forget to have good grip to your camera, unless you want it to fly away into the wilderness.

If you are on a wildlife photography tour, let Go4safri know about it before hand. They will make arrangement for that.

Just by sitting in the front row will reduce the shocks by great extent, and last row will have the exact opposite reaction. Last row is directly over the wheels so you will experience lots of bouncing effects. teenagers might like it.

While you are on a narrow trail watch-out for tree branches, most comes with thorns.

What to wear during the Safari.

It's not like Man vs Wild appeared in Discovery channel, you are not crawling through mud with elephants, anyway you are not allowed to step outside of the vehicle, in most locations, unless your park ranger gives permission to do so, it's park rules.

However, your clothes, hair, face might get dusty, If you prefer to stay clean no matter what, do not forget to bring a wet wipe to clean off your face.

Big picture about what you can wear is, you can wear whatever you want, consider the blazing sun when you select your cloths.

You may get sun sunburn.

Do not forget to have a sunscreen or shades. Locals can endure the heat, but not for you. most of the vehicles (jeeps) have a roof, but the sun won't stay on top, most of the time.

Other important things that you should know about.

If you want to take a photographs coordinate with your driver for stopping the vehicle while it is moving or you want to get in to a perfect spot for your photograph, Put your camera on sport mode and keep it ready at all times, you don't know when you will encounter amazing wildlife in its natural habitat.

You will have bathroom breaks when you do your picnic breakfast and picnic lunch, if you need any additional bathroom breaks just tell the driver, but it will disrupt the Game-Drive so only drink adequate liquids.

One more thing, you will not be the only vehicle doing the tour, popular national parks have more jeeps, having the same goal as you, so you have to take it easy about the traffic jam, for the sake of country’s incredible wildlife, you are about to witness.
