Eco Team operates 3 wildlife tours ranging from 6 to 13 days mostly focused on Sri Lanka's major National Parks & Nature Reserves to offer the maximum opportunities for viewing the country's diverse wildlife.
If you do not have much time in Sri Lanka to do a long exclusive wildlife tour, a 1 or 2 night Safari Camp experience is the right solution.
For a general wildlife enthusiast a large number of species from each group [ birds / mammals /amphibians / Fish / Dragonflies / butterflies] could be encountered in any of the wildlife tours we offer. Other groups such as whales, dolphins, reef fish and deep-sea fish are found in the island’s ocean waters and our Whales & Dolphin watching tours or Diving Tours would cater to such interests. Please refer to our birding page for specialized birding tours.
If you are keen to do a very focused specific Mammal Tour / Amphibian tour / Dragonfly Tour / or a Inland Fish Tour our expert team of naturalist would tailor make the right programme for you specially to spot the endemic spices. We know the right places and the right time to spot the most rare species! readmore...
Of the 102 species of mammal, pride of place goes to the magnificent elephant - the second largest terrestrial mammal surviving today. These fascinating animals can be seen with relative ease in most of the parks, in large herds of extended families as well as lone males.
Sri Lanka is also famous for the beautiful solitary leopard, best sighted at dawn or dusk when these adaptable predators come down from the shade of the trees to hunt. Other predatory animals which can be found in Sri Lanka include the sloth bear, golden jackal and mongooses.
Primates such as common langurs and a wide variety of monkeys (such as the endemic macaque, purple faced leaf monkey and shaggy bear monkey) demonstrate their remarkable agility by swinging from branch to branch, often in huge troops.
