Yala is both a wildlife sanctuary and a national park, which is home to 44 varieties of mammal and 200+ bird species. Have a safari arranged across this wildlife paradise and explore the unexplored.
Yala in a quick gist
Spreading across approximately 400 square miles, Yala National Park is located 260km South East of Colombo. If you are worried about this distance, you don’t really have to as you now have the convenience of travelling on Sri Lanka internal flights that helps you get rid of the worry of driving for hours. Air taxi services such as Cinnamon Air are available now, so travelling to Yala is easier for you indeed.
Best times to visit
Visit Yala between February and July as the water levels of the park are relatively low during this time. Chances are that you get to see more of leopards, elephants, sloth bears, spotted deer and peacocks in their open and free habitats.
It’s an exploration journey
Not just the wildlife, you are also free to explore the ancient tales of Sri Lanka as one of the most important pilgrim sites- Sithulpawwa is located in close vicinity.
Your duty there
If you are a true lover of nature, then there is one thing that you need to do for the love of mother nature. Be a responsible visitor and do not leave any trash in the park when you are done with your safari.
