Teaming with birdlife and healthy population of leopards, sloth bears and elephants, Yala is with good reason, Sri Lanka’s most popular national park. Originally a hunting ground for the British during the Colonial rule, Yala covers more than 900 sq kms of protected area making it one of Sri Lanka’s biggest national parks. The landscape is varied, with rocky outcrops where leopards like to laze; scrub jungles where jackals and spotted deer emerge from the undergrowth; lagoons and lakes where crocodiles are often seen basking in the sun; rivers and even beaches.
For the most reliable wildlife sightings, its best to visit Yala during the dry season from December to June. Whilst you visit mainly for the leopards, Yala’s varied typography promises a series of wildlife encounters and exciting adventures.
