Wilpattu Wild Watch


The public will be able to book circuit bungalows and camping sites of the Department of Wildlife Conservation of Sri Lanka (DWC) via the internet.


According to the ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA), concomitant with this online reservation, payment for the booking could be made through credit cards and mobile phones.


Local and foreign tourists will greatly benefit from the introduction of this e-Service jointly implemented by DWC of the Ministry of the Wildlife Resources Conservation (WRC) and ICTA.


ICTA says that in the past local tourists had to come to Colombo to make a DWC reservation. Even a resident of Anuradhapura had to come to Colombo to book a DWC circuit bungalow at the Wilpattu National Park which is only 38 kilometres away from Anuradhapura. But thanks to this newly introduced e-Service of online reservation, such hassle of physical visit to Colombo, queuing up etc, could be done away with.


While there are 44 DWC circuit bungalows and camp sites, the number of local and foreign tourists visiting Wildlife parks annually exceeds 1.2 million.


The launch will take place at the DWC premises on Tuesday (18) under the patronage of Ministers Gamini Vijith Wijayamuni Zoysa and Ranjith Siyambalapitiya. Presidential Secretary Lalith Weeratunga will also attend the inauguration.


For obtaining this service, please visit www.dwc.gov.lk or www.srilanka.lk from after the ceremony for the launch of the facility which is scheduled to begin at 4.30 p.m. on February 18, 2014.
