I don’t know about you but when I think of Sri Lanka I think about amazing temples, national parks filled with elephants and leopards, beautiful tea plantations and miles of sandy beaches.

If there is one animal I love it is the elephant! It was a goal of mine to see both the African and Asian elephant in the wild.  My first ever safari experience was in Sri Lanka just prior to our trip to Uganda and Rwanda! I couldn’t help but feel like we were getting a warm up. An opportunity to test our safari gear, test photography etc but most importantly it was a chance to see Asian elephants in the wild!
