After breakfast, take a leisurely drive to Gal Oya, a beautiful National Park surrounded by water and islands. This afternoon visit the Wildlife Research Centre at the Lodge to learn about their data collection, results and discoveries. Also visit various camera trap sites and see how their biologists, students and naturalists collect the data, prepare it and analyse it. Species seen in the area include mouse deer, wild boar, land and water monitor, porcupines and the highly endangered thick-tailed pangolin. Furthermore, they have observed three out of the four species of wild cats in Sri Lanka. This evening, join one of the resident naturalists for a walk in search of birdlife around the lodge.
