    Day 5, Horton Plains
    Today we explore the windy and wild Horton Plains National Park, 2,100m above sea level. Trek to the World's End viewpoint for breathtaking views of the mountains and green jungle, then take a dip in Baker's Falls. Keep an eye out for some of the many species that inhabit the park. Sambar deer, wild boars and langur monkeys all live here, and we may be lucky enough to spot some of these animals before we return to the campsite.

    Day 6, Udawalawe National Park
    Belihuloya - Udawalawe. Our wildlife spotting continues today as we travel to a comfortable tented campsite in the famous Udawalawe National Park, our home for the next two nights.

After our busy day of game spotting we return to our campsite for dinner.

    Day 7, Udawalawe National Park
