Yala national park is famous for Leopards. But our tough luck that only on that fateful day, none of the approx. 100 cars in the jungle could spot even a single leopard. We did spot a few jackals outside the jungle boundaries though. Nothing rare except that. Before going on a safari, it would be good to check if its a holiday in SL or if the weather's too hot.

Yala Game Park is not the largest game park in Sri Lanka, yet with its variety of wildlife, it's the most visited. Even though Yala has one of the world's largest leopard populations, which is the apex predator in Sri Lanka. Seeing this subspecies & also the Black Sloth Bear still requires a little bit of luck.
