Which National Park?
Whilst most National Parks can be visited year-round and still promise a high chance of spotting wildlife, the following parks are at their peak during December:
Uda Walawe (migrating birds), Horton Plains, Sinharaja, Bundala
December top tip
Peak season is well underway. Avoid the key Christmas dates to benefit from cheaper flights and to dodge the hotel's high season surcharges. Having said that, how better to spend Christmas than on a Sri Lankan beach?!
