I will never ever get enough of the open jeep safaris through beautiful National Parks. The minute I spot anything moving, no matter how far or close, I jump up from my seat like a 4 year old in excitement and pure awe. There is just something so magical about being up close to animals when found in their natural habitat, especially elephants. I think they are my favorite. I love the way they move – so slow and gentle, and quite elegant in a way. However watching them eat is probably the most entertaining thing ever especially when they eat bark. They eat it like grass making it look like it's no biggie to rip off a couple strong branches from a perfectly healthy tree. A random fact we learned on this past safari, did you know that elephants have the best sense of smell in the animal kingdom? They can detect water sources up to 12 miles away ?! Just in case you are eyeing my headscarf it is from the beautiful @thelosttribe_ Thanks to @shangrilahambantota for the amazing experience

  • With Sri Lanka’s stunning skylines, the Instagram sunset game just got a whole lot bigger. One can never get enough of sunset pictures in Sri Lanka.

  • And one can never get enough of Sigiriya and the surrounding views too…

  • And no, we did not forget about Ceylon Tea. How could we! According to our expert view, tea is not tea unless it is drunk in Sri Lanka, preferably with a view like this.

#YohoTip: Try one of the many budget hotels in Nuwara Eliya and you could be well on your way to having a cuppa with a view to die for!

  • And this last one, well – it just kind of speaks for itself

We rest our case. If these Sri Lanka pictures have not charmed the socks off you, you should probably check your pulse. Let us know which part of Sri Lanka you’re most excited to see in the comments below!
