What is Yala National Park?

Yala National park is the oldest and the second largest national park in the Country. It is a secondary growth of the forest where used to be an ancient kingdom over 2000 years ago.

Yala is home for an array of wildlife while the different blocks (sectors) of the park fall under multiple climate zones, changing landscape, vegetation and animal densities different between each block.

Yala is renowned for its highest density of leopards in the world making it the world’s best destination to see a leopard in the wild, even ousting Africa. 

Collaborative research carried out by frequent visitors of Yala has identified and profiled over 100 individual leopards in Block 1 it self over 5 years time.

As in climate zones While block 2 of Yala falls under the arid zone, block 1 falls under semi arid and block 3-4-5 extends into intermediate and dryzone. Therefore vegetation in Yala extends from shrub jungles of thorny bushes to dual layered riparian gallery forest with a tree canopy.

What animal to see in Yala National Park?

When it comes to exciting big animals, all of the terrestrial Ceylon big five, elephants, leopards, bears, wild water buffalos, and wild bores can be encountered in Yala national park.

Also a lesser known top-fact of Yala is that it is also the highest density of mugger crocodiles in the world.

For birding in Yala national park, is like birders paradise! The great yala complex is home to over 200 species of resident birds with over another hundreds of migrant and vagrant species in winter months. There are several bird species endemic to the park itself.
