    Buduruwagala has both the island's tallest statue and the largest group of ancient Buddhist sculptures carved into the rock. Remarkably, the statues are Mahayanistic and indicate even Tantric influence.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Yala National Park Sri Lanka

    Yala is Sri Lanka's most celebrated national park. Chances to observe wild leopards are higher than anywhere else in the world, about 30-50% chance during an afternoon safari. On the entire island, this is the area richest in biodiversity. This is due to a variety of landscapes such as dense jungles, large swamps, open grasslands, sandy coastlines, and steep rocks. The density in leopards and crocodiles and deer is extremely high in Yala Block 1, which will be crossed on this jeep safari. Yala is also noteworthy for its birdlife. After your safari you will be transferred to the hotel or guesthouse of your choice in the area of Yala, Tissa, or Kirinda.

    Duration: 3 hours
