Breakfast on the sand dunes, lunch on the river bed, Leopards on day 1 and huge herds of Asian Elephants on our final day! We loved the sunset tour of Anuradhapura. It was magical. The food at the Eco Lodge was great and so was the nature walk with insights into medicinal plants. Fantastic bungalow up in Kandy. The incredible hard work put in by Chami and Raji (the owners of Ayu in the Wild) behind the scenes, really showed. Wish Ayu in the Wild the success that you deserve.
