Morning proceed to Yala enroute visiting the Udawalawe National Park famous for elephants. Firstly you will visit the Elephant transit home close to the park and watch the baby elephants being bottle fed with milk.
Afternoon – do a game drive at the Udawalawe National Park and proceed to Yala.
Morning – leave for Riverstone and engage in a nature trek through home spice gardens, vegetable fields, rice fields, tea plantation, pigmy forests and plateaus. The trek is approximately about 8 kms one way and its 16 kms in total. At the end of the trail you would be able to swim at a base of a nice waterfall. You are expected to encounter with species such as Deer, Barking deer, Deer monkey and various types of Lizards. In this trek you will be climbing from 1200 ft to 1850 ft. On the way back you will be able to do some bird watching.
You will be accompanied on your trek by a guide who knows the area intimately as well as one or two assistants (depending on your group size) who will serve as porters for the hike. The terrain is fairly smooth and perhaps the most challenging aspect during the rainy season will be slippery tracks and leeches.
Morning – proceed to Habarana and in the afternoon engage in a Jeep Safari of the Minneriya or Kaudulla National Park (depending in where more elephants could be seen).
Both parks are situated near large water tanks where the elephants congregate to have their daily baths and feed on the grass beds. The best time to visit these parks is between August and October when it is the dry season and the elephants need to come out to the lakes for water and to feed on the grass.
Early Morning – leave for Wilpattu via Anuradhapura and do a Game drive at Wilpattu National Park. Be luck enough to spot a leopard or a sloth bear in this verdant jungle. However, there is much more to observe at Wilpattu which is famous for its small water bodies.
