Planning a safari in Sri Lanka in December can be an exciting and memorable experience, as it’s a great time to witness the diverse wildlife that the country has to offer. Sri Lanka is known for its national parks and reserves, which are home to a variety of animals, including elephants, leopards, and a wide range of bird species. Here’s a step-by-step plan for your safari in Sri Lanka:

1. Choose Your Destination:

2. Duration of the Safari:

  • Decide how many hours you want to spend on your safari. A typical safari can range from 3 to 10 hours, depending on your interests and budget.

3. Accommodation:

  • Book your accommodation in advance, especially if you plan to stay near the national park or away. You can choose from a variety of options, including wildlife lodges, campsites, or nearby hotels.

4. Transportation:

  • Arrange for transportation to and within Sri Lanka. You can fly into Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo and then take domestic flights or drive to your chosen safari destination. We at Earth Lanka Events also offer transportation as part of our safari packages.

5. Guided Tour or Self-Drive:

  • Decide whether you want to go on a guided safari or a self-drive safari. Guided safaris are often more convenient and provide better wildlife-spotting opportunities, as the guides are experienced in locating animals. Self-drive safaris offer more flexibility but require good knowledge of the area.

6. Entry Permits and Safari Jeep:

  • Obtain the necessary permits to enter the national parks. You’ll also need to rent a safari jeep with a knowledgeable driver and guide. These can usually be arranged through tour operators or at the park entrance or Earth Lanka Events (Pvt) Ltd.

7. Pack Essentials:

  • Prepare for your safari by packing essentials like lightweight clothing, a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, binoculars, a camera, and comfortable walking shoes. Don’t forget to bring any prescription medications you might need.

8. Respect Wildlife and Nature:

  • While on your safari, remember to respect the wildlife and nature. Maintain a safe distance from the animals, avoid littering, and follow all park rules and regulations.

9. Food and Water:

  • We can arrange food packs if you request prior to the tour. Some accommodations provide meals as part of their packages.

10. Enjoy Other Attractions:

  • Sri Lanka offers more than just wildlife. Take some time to explore the culture, history, and beautiful landscapes of the country. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit cultural sites like Sigiriya or relax on the picturesque beaches.

11. Book in Advance:

  • Safaris in Sri Lanka can be popular, especially in December. To secure your preferred dates and accommodations, it’s a good idea to book well in advance.

Remember that wildlife sightings are not guaranteed, but with the right planning and a bit of luck, you can have an incredible safari experience in Sri Lanka in December. Enjoy your adventure!
