Do visitors travel like this in convoys of jeeps or is it just a rare occurrence. Animals in wildlife sanctuaries and convoys of visitor vehicles don’t go together. Animals in manmade safari parks don’t mind frequent streams of traffic, they have no choice and nowhere else to go. Animals in wildlife reserves will hide away from this sort of traffic. Nature is such as that, do these visitors see many wild animals. I doubt and will be surprised if that is the case. If they do not see many wildlife why should visitors swarm like this. If there is a demand of large numbers of visitors to the wildlife sanctuaries like Yala, Udawalawe, and Wilpaththu there should be orderly, sustainable facilities to visit the wildlife parks. Such numbers would provide a good revenue and income to government and people resulting economic benefits. These revenues could be allocated to improve the welfare of animals like building sustainable waterholes, and other infrastructure in the wildlife parks.
My question is, do wildlife tolerate this kind of vehicle invasion, do visitors see enough amazing wildlife, is it sustainable? If the journey is not worth as a wildlife expedition, are the visitors, tourists, and the environment taken for a ride?
