All our tours are carried our with a minium footprint on nature, sustainably, professionally and ethically.
Our tours are curated to cater any traveller’s budget and time frame from young backpackers to groups and families with children visiting Yala National Park, Sri Lanka.
We also happen to have an almost 99.9% success rate in leopard sighting on multi-day tours across different blocks (sectors) of Yala, off the beaten track, since 2016.
However, we CANNOT GUARANTEE any leopard sightings as these are wild animal tracking tours into national parks, not zoological gardens. If you want to see a leopard guaranteed, the best is to visit a Zoo.
It’s Rustic and Homely, yet Professional and Sustainable.

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.
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.

Alone, Yala National Park area extends over 96,000 ha (hectares) among 5 blocks or sectors.
