Wildlife Tours in Sri Lanka
Bee Eater Trivia
The Green Bee-eater is a very common sight in the Yala National Park.
A “Lippy” Bear!
Did you know that a Sloth Bear’s lips are among the most interesting and most distinguishable parts of its anatomy, and are specially adapted for efficiently eating ants and termites? Its muzzle can vary in colour from dirty white to grey, with protruding lips and nostrils that can be closed at will. Its lack of facial hair protects it from the corrosive sticky secretions of threatened termites.
The Sloth Bear is an excellent tree-climber. Do you think it climbs trees for protection or for something else?
What Awaits You at Mahoora Udawalawe at Breakfast?
Breakfast at Mahoora Udawalawe is a surreal and intense experience, with a spectacular 180° view of the Park!
A Fishy Question: Does the Brown Fish-Owl eat only Fish?
Did you know that the Brown Fish-Owl is the most common species of Owl in Sri Lanka? Although this large owl is named after its fish-based diet, it is also known to eat frogs, crabs, and other small aquatic creatures. Its talons are specially adapted to catch live fish from running water, and to see one of them fishing is a spectacular sight indeed!
Do you think the Brown Fish-Owl’s colour helps it blend in with tree trunks, or if it’s just there to keep it warm?
The perfect end to a perfect day
The Mahoora tented safari campsite at Udawalawe offers a unique experience to all adventurers who have just finished an evening safari expedition. Not far from the campsite is a vantage point where you can take in an amazing view of the sunset over the Udawalawe National Park.
What Mahoora adds to this experience is luxury and high comfort where you least expect it. You can recline on an ultra-comfy beanbag chair on top of a 30 foot rock, with a delicious tropical cocktail in your hand while watching the sunset with other members of your group.
What other way to relax after a long safari adventure than that?
