Wilpattu National Park
Wilpattu is a paradise for all types of bird species. It is full of migrant birds like the Indian Paradise flycatcher, Asiatic Golden Player, Indian pitta, and many resident birds like a brown capped babbler, black-fronted babbler, Ceylon grey hornbill, and black-capped Bulbul.
The Wilpattu National Park houses several reptiles as well. The Garden lizard, the painted-lipped lizard, the Mugger crocodile, the land monitor, and the star crocodile are common.
The beautiful butterflies are a sight to see and capture with your lens. Common Jay, common Gul, the blue Mormon, and Monkey Puzzle are the species you can spot.
The visitors can enjoy the Wilpattu National Park safari while getting the experience of seeing a wider variety of animals. Spending a night in a tented camp in or near Wilpattu or going on safari here while staying in Anuradhapura, is the best way to experience nature, sightseeing, bird watching, and enjoying the view of the unique animal species.
