See the Big Five
Though smaller than most countries that have the Big Five, Sri Lanka is the only island that has the pride of having them all in one place.

Other than Africa, no country can claim to have the Big Five and following them closely is Sri Lanka Safari, a common thing to go on when visiting the island and having the Big Five is a major source of attraction too.

For the people who want to see these animals up close, a lot of camps provide staying facilities within the reserve too and Mahoora Tented Safari Camps is one of them.
