"Sri Lanka is a Hidden Treasure to be discovered by all who love Nature."
"NATURE HAS ITS OWN GIFT, and at every part of the world, the wilderness provided is something unique. In Sri Lanka we focused on encountering leopards, and we did see many. One day we had about one dozen sightings, and that is remarkable on the world level. I shall return and soon."
