Yala National Park is a wildlife sanctuary located in the southeast region of Sri Lanka. It covers an area of approximately 979 square kilometers and is home to a wide variety of animals, including elephants, leopards, sloth bears, and crocodiles. The park is also a popular bird-watching destination, with over 215 bird species having been recorded there.


Yala National Park offers visitors the chance to go on safari and observe these animals in their natural habitat. There are several types of safaris available, including jeep safaris, walking safaris, and camping safaris. The park is open year-round, but the best time to visit is between February and July when the water levels are lower and animals are more likely to gather near the watering holes.


While visiting Yala National Park, it’s important to follow the park rules and regulations to ensure the safety of both the visitors and the animals. It’s also recommended to hire a knowledgeable guide to accompany you on your safari to maximize your chances of seeing the park’s wildlife.
