Originally a hunting ground, Yala has been a sanctuary for wildlife since 1900. Today it is Sri Lanka’s second largest park and its most popular – when you see the stars of the show, it’s easy to see why! Encompassing a variety of ecosystems, from grassy plains to forest and lagoons to beaches, Yala has the highest density of leopards in the world, and that’s just to start with! It also has 215 species of bird that call it home, six of which are endemic and a wealth of other mammals, including elephants, monkeys, sloth bears, water buffalo, fishing cats and the red slender loris. Embark on a safari here for an experience of a lifetime.
