It looks like I’m going to be making an unexpected work trip to Sri Lanka in the next couple of weeks and wondered if anyone could give me any pointers.
I’m going to be working in the north (Mannar Island & possibly also near Jaffna) – this area doesn’t really feature in trip reports and presumably hasn’t been much visited by wildlife tourists. Anyone been to the north or heard anything about it?
Any free time I have before or after the work is going to be limited (or worse, almost nonexistent) – I’ve had a look through various trip reports and can’t work out the best site(s) to try. I might possibly try to fit in a couple of nights around Sirigaya on the way back south, or perhaps return to Colombo and then head east for 1-3 nights. Any thoughts on the best way to see a few decent mammals in a short period.
Any advice gratefully received!
