Had a fantastic time inside the park with Jumbos, all sorts of birds & most importantly with three unforgettable sightings of well built young healthy Leopards. Although I have been in most other national parks in the island, Kumana was the park that had the best of the variety in wildlife.

We spent a day inside Kumana national park with a safari driver. It was not that dry due to wet days in the previous days. We were lucky enough to watch lot of birds. There were few elephants close to the road. We enjoyed watching dancing peacocks everywhere. Thanks to safari driver and park guide, we had a wonderful day.

Kumana Villu ( Lake ) is a wonderful place to visit and spend time in the months of June July and August.

The whole area reverberate with... More
