Yala National Park is one of Sri Lanka’s largest and most diverse national parks, full of wild monsoon forest, grassland, marine wetlands and sandy beaches, which provide the ideal habitat for a range of mammals and bird life. Our exciting morning jeep safari takes you into the park by 4X4 with an experienced guide, so you can go in search of the incredible wildlife Yala offers. Yala’s most famous residents are its leopards; incredibly Yala boasts a higher concentration of leopard than anywhere else in the world. If you are lucky you may get to spot one of these illusive cats as well as coming across elephant, crocodile, wild boar, buffalo, sambar deer and perhaps a sloth bear (although these creatures are rather shy!). This area also offers outstanding bird watching as many migratory birds arrive here to escape the winters further north. It’s important to note that the safari experience in Yala National Park does not compare to that in East and Southern Africa, but it does offer a fantastic chance of seeing some incredible wildlife and subspecies that are only found in Sri Lanka.
