Before breakfast, we leave early for a short walk around the village of Debarawewa. Our interesting walk begins in the shadow of a giant rain tree that is home to countless fruit bats. We discover the wonderful birdlife and experience how the animals and the small town awaken. We visit a potter, look over his shoulder as he makes jars for local quark and cheese production and learn a lot about everyday life here in the village. In the afternoon we go on a jeep safari in the famous Yala National Park (since this national park is very popular due to the good chances of seeing leopards, a high number of visitors must be expected). The savannah-like, sparsely overgrown landscape with its low bushes and bushes, rocks and flat lagoons is home to wild elephants, water buffalos, deer, wild boars, crocodiles, turtles, monkeys and many other animals. But numerous bird species such as flamingos, peacocks, herons and pelicans also feel at home here. If we are lucky we can even see leopards.
