Sri Lankan Safaris
Things you need to know about Safaris, beforehand.
Sri Lanka is a must-visit Safari destination in the world. A small island nation filled with hundreds of endemic species is a big draw to do a safari. The best way to have a wildlife encounter is to take a Safari Game Drive in a National park in Sri Lanka. Below you can find some of the most valuable information that nobody tells beforehand. I am sure this will clear any doubt you having what to expect on the tour itself.
It is definitely a bumpy ride.
Well, This is wilderness, so do not expect a comfortable ride like you are on an expressway, jeeps have comfortable seats with local standard and have pretty good suspensions, however, they can’t absorb a sudden jerk as a high-performance vehicles handle shocks.
So hold on to something and do not forget to have a good grip to your camera, unless you want it to fly away into the wilderness.

If you are on a wildlife photography tour, let Go4safri know about it beforehand. They will make arrangement for that.
Just by sitting in the front row will reduce the shocks by a great extent, and the last row will have the exact opposite reaction. Last row is directly over the wheels so you will experience lots of bouncing effects. teenagers might like it.
While you are on a narrow trail watch-out for tree branches, most comes with thorns.
What to wear during the Safari.
It’s not like Man vs Wild appeared in Discovery channel, you are not crawling through mud with elephants, anyway, you are not allowed to step outside of the vehicle, in most locations, unless your park ranger permits to do so, it’s park rules.
