Righto boys, cleanup time!

Ravi, the Sambar Deer, settles in for a grooming session

Ravi: Argh, these ticks are a menace! Buzz & Woody, my dear Myna Birds, please help me!

Buzz: With pleasure! My, these are big juicy ones. Should have called us earlier, old friend.
Ravi: I know. But I’ve been a bit… busy. When you have multiple girlfriends, time flies.
Woody: Hmmm, us monogamous Mynas wouldn’t know anything about the ‘multiple girlfriends’ life. I honestly don’t know how you do it. One mate is more than I can handle.
Ravi: Hehe, nothing wrong with it if it works for you.
Buzz: This mud bath must help with the ticks eh, Ravi?
Ravi: It does, briefly, but then they somehow come back. Maybe I should head up to the hills?
Buzz: You mean to Horton Plains? Hmmm, it is much cooler there but you do know that there are Leopards up there, right? You know that it’s not any safer there than here.
Ravi: Of course, I know that. But I’ve got my trusty antlers to protect me, and even the biggest Leopard here in Wilpattu hasn’t tried anything with me… yet.
Woody: Well, maybe you should go for a bit. There’s plenty of grass there. I know you love munching on grass.
Ravi: Oh brother, you have no idea. I keep telling you to try it and you never do.
Buzz: Why would we, when you’re a walking smorgasbord of juicy ticks? We’d never go hungry with you around. In fact, I think Woody and I will tag along with you to the hills. We might starve without you!

  

Story of the Photo

WILDERNESS UPDATES

 

Much more than just a great place to stay

"Thanks to our guide Avinka we had five great safaris staying four nights just after reopening this February. The staff made us feel so very welcome during the entire stay.

The safaries are just wonderful, and having a great guide in your vehicle makes a big difference. Avinka can spot animals you would never see and we were even lucky enough to sight leopards on the trees, close to our vehicle, and also running through the field. The wildlife is so exciting that you will have a great experience even if you don‘t see any leopards. We also had a great driver, which is essential if you drive through difficult territory. You are being taken care of the entire time, so even for those who do safaris for the first time, you will always feel safe.

The camp itself is very comfortable, you get everything you can think of, and on top of the great food being served with so much attention and friendliness. You also get wonderful vegetarian and vegan options. They put on bonfires at night, which makes it unforgettable.
When booking and making plans, you get great support from the headquarters, even if it gets difficult since you have to change your plans.
The best thing what can happen to you at the end of a vacation is when you are a bit sad to leave the place, having experienced something to remember forever, and the team does everything for this to happen. Thank you so much"
