• Mahoora safari and game drives at Yala National Park Sri Lanka
    The World’s Best Safari Experience outside Africa

Experience the zone with the biggest leopard population on the planet! Boasting the highest density of leopard population in the world, the Yala National Park is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts and is widely noted as being the best place in the world for a Sri Lankan leopard safari to film and photograph the Sri Lankan Leopard, with the population density being as high as one leopard per square kilometre! As Yala has 5 Blocks, our Mahoora Naturalists avoid the busier blocks during the high season and take you to more private and rewarding blocks at the National Park.

Yala Park is amongst the oldest and best known of Sri Lanka's 15 National Parks. It covers approximately 1,300 square kilometres and is home to a range of ecosystems found nowhere else in Sri Lanka. With vegetation including moist and dry monsoon forests, thorn forest, savannah grasslands and fresh and saltwater wetlands, it comes as no surprise that the Yala National Park has the perfect habitats for the large number of endemic plant and animal species unique to the country. There are 44 species of recorded mammals in Yala National Park Sri Lanka, which include the Sri Lankan Leopard, Sri Lankan Sloth Bear and Sri Lankan Elephant, 215 species of birds, 46 species of reptiles and 21 species of amphibians.

Sri Lanka Yala National Park Safari Timetable & Weather

The morning safari starts from the camp at 5:30am – 10:00am. The park gate opens at 6:00am. The afternoon safari starts from the camp at 2:30pm – 6:00pm.
The Park is situated in the dry zone of Sri Lanka and the climate is hot and humid. Sri Lanka’s weather is affected by many factors like depressions in the Indian Ocean, thus the weather is prone to change suddenly; rain often comes in short and dramatic bursts before clearing up.
