Private Day Tour in Sinharaja Jungle Safari
The rich and unique animal and plant life in the Sinharaja Rainforest National Park is the reason why it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988. Despite its enormous variety of flora and fauna, the Sinharaja Rainforest – compared to other national parks in Sri Lanka – is visited by relatively few tourists. The reserve currently covers an area of 8,864 hectares. The hilly and unspoiled rainforest is a real treasure trove of endemic species, including mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians and of course an abundance of trees, plants and insects.
20 of the 26 endemic bird species in Sri Lanka can be seen in the Sinharaja Rainforest. In addition, more than 60% of the plants are endemic, many of which are very rare. The reserve is also home to more than 50% of the country’s endemic species of mammals, butterflies, reptiles, amphibians and insects.
On your day tour through the Sinharaja Rainforest, you will quickly realize how much life is in this forest. Here you will find lush green vegetation – from small, carnivorous plants to giant trees over 50m high. Your experienced guide will not only point out the many animals that untrained eyes often overlook, but also tell you something interesting about the rainforest and life here.
