With monkeys crashing through the trees, peacocks strutting their stuff, elephants grazing the grasslands and the elusive Sri Lankan leopard shadowing the undergrowth, Yala National Park is a vast region of woodland and open patches of grassland, and one of Sri Lanka’s jewels.
With a number of safari camps established in the park, and the famed Dilmah-owned hotel group, Resplendent Ceylon, set to add to their portfolio this year with a brand new luxury tented safari camp, we are thrilled to be able to offer an exclusive wildlife experience here. With luxury tents at night, you have an exclusive wildlife expert to experience Yala with during the day.
Noel Rodrigo, also known as the Leopard Man, is one of Sri Lank’s most prominent wildlife experts. Having spent over 35 years in Yala amongst one of the world’s highest concentrations of leopards, and having extensive knowledge of the park’s birds and animals, Noel not only finds the animals but will immerse you in the tracking experience, from learning the wildlife calls to spotting the tracks in the woodlands.
