Located on Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka was first influenced by Portuguese before it finally gained its independence by the year 1948. There are beautiful beaches in the shoreline of Sri Lanka. But exploring Sri Lanka is not limited to beautiful beaches; you would also get the taste of Africa once you visit Sri Lanka.

Get to experience the Africa safari when you visit Yala National Park. Inside the park you will see various animals from the wild such as water buffaloes, crocodiles, wild deer and even exotic birds like cuckoos, storks and hornsbill. There is also an area for elephant Conservation Park where visitors would have the chance to bathe this gigantic animal.
