Immersive leopard and sloth bear safari experience – Wilpattu National Park

The Sri Lankan leopard is a recognised subspecies of the Indian leopard and is currently the largest species of leopard living in Asia. The Wilpattu National Park is known for its numerous opportunities to film and photograph these wonderful animals that are often seen lying beside the park’s many villus.
Wilpattu is also home to Sri Lankan sloth bears, which are highly threatened. Less than 1,000 of them are currently living in the wild. It is the largest national park in Sri Lanka but has fewer visitors compared to the Yala National Park. This offers you less crowded wildlife encounters. You have 3 options to book safaris in the Wilpattu National Park: [1] morning safari [2] evening safari [3] full day safari.
