Wildlife in YALA



Sri Lanka is a country where people exudes sympathy always with a smile on their face. A country where colour is always present, from the blue sea or sky, the different shades of green in their paddy fields or the world famous tea. Full of cultural richness with old historic capitals that have survived until today and  traditions that we see every day as we discover the ancient Ceylon, but wildlife is one of the attractions in the south.



Yala National Park, located in the southeast of the island, is one of the most visited on the island and has an area of 1,500 km². It's old hunting ground, transformed into natural park in 1938, with an amazing variety of wildlife. A vast expanses dotted with scrub, lagoons and rocky outcrops, and inhabited by elephants, panthers, wild buffalo, black bears, jackals, monkeys and the real wild turkey.

In Yala, there is the possibility of a half day safari, when we move from Nuwara Eliya to Kataragama, or to spend the night in one of their lodges for two days and explore their territory in search of the precious leopard.
