Wilpattu National Park

Wilpattu National Park is a unique park located on the north east of the island and it is virtually off-the-beaten track for tourists. After years of being off-limits during the civil war it re-opened to tourists just a few years ago and remains largely unspoiled and unerringly wild for all its years of isolation. The numbers of leopards within the park are still unknown but sightings are quite frequent. It is also believed to have the highest sloth bear population in the country. The lack of crowds leads to almost private viewings of the wildlife, and the topography of Wilpattu, which is mostly made up of lakes, appeals to a colourful range of aquatic birds.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
