• Mahoora safaris at Wilpattu National park Sri Lanka
    The oldest
    and largest National Park in Sri Lanka
Due to the fewer number of visitors to this particular Park, the wildlife within the confines of the Wilpattu National Park has hardly had contact with humans. The animals are therefore often shy unlike those in Yala, making the need for an experienced guide even greater, one which Mahoora can provide. 4WD safari jeeps are the best way in which to explore the varied terrain.
The Wilpattu National Park is the largest National Park in Sri Lanka and comprises diverse forest types. With over 30 recorded species of mammalian wildlife, Wilpattu promises much to the adventurous soul. Some of the sightings include observing the Sri Lankan Elephant, Sri Lankan Leopard, Sri Lankan Sloth Bear and Spotted Deer. Wetland bird species such as the Pintail, Whistling Teal, Spoonbill and the White Ibis can also be found in the Wilpattu National Park.
At Wilpattu, among the reptiles found, the most common is the Mugger crocodile, which is smaller than its saltwater cousin. Monitors, Cobras, Rat Snakes and the Indian Python are often encountered, whilst the Pond Turtle and the Soft Shelled Turtle reside in and around the various bodies of water that have given Wilpattu its name.
Observing endangered animals in the wild is a privilege that this National Park has to offer and it is definitely one that you will cherish for a lifetime.

Safari Timetable & Weather

The park gate opens at 6:00am. The morning safari starts from camp at 5:30am and we exit the Park at 9:30am. The afternoon safari starts from camp at 2:30pm and we exit the Park at 6:00pm.

The annual temperature in the Park is around 27°C and its annual rainfall is approximately 1,000 mm. Though situated in the dry zone, the climate inside the Wilpattu National Park is very unlike that of the dry zone. The period from September to December is known as the rainy season in Wilpattu with the north east monsoon falling heavily. Inter-monsoonal rains come to Wilpattu between March and April. The period of drought in the Park extends from May to early September.
