Tour description

PHOTOGRAPHER-ESCORTED WILDLIFE TOUR - SRI LANKAThis is a tour of a selected Wildlife Sanctuary, where your escort will be L.L. Prasanna Ranatunga SCPM(Stanford).No guarantees can be provided for specific animal sightings. The value of this tour comes primarily from the company that you get to keep, the extent of sanctuary that is covered, the choice of less-traveled routes in preference to high-traffic areas, your own personal vehicle inside the park, your own personal transportation to and from the sanctuary (luxury van, seaplane or helicopter), the wildlife in close proximity to your accommodation, and access to Prasanna's experience and expertise.Only a few tours are available per year.Please also note that, in many instances, animal sightings can be seasonal. Even though leopards are territorial, they can choose to remain in the jungle, away from park roads.
