The scenery was absolutely stunning... beautiful lakes against the backdrop of the mountains. There were lots of elephants, and apparently 3pm is the best time to see them. I did really enjoy the experience, although it was expensive! We saw eagles and pelicans and lots of monkies but alongside the elephants that was the extent of the wildlife. The only negative was the amount of trucks and jeeps, some were completely full and I felt that the trucks were far too close to the elephants and at times they seemed distressed which I didn't like. If you're desperate to see elephants, it is great and very picturesque. But if you've done other elephant based experiences in Sri Lanka I would give it a miss.
