Yala National Park - the kingdom of the leopards
A visit to the Yala National Park is an unforgettable adventure: experience exotic animals such as graceful leopards and mighty elephants in their natural habitat. Discover over 30 different mammals and 130 bird species in the island’s oldest nature reserve on 1,500 km2. Immerse yourself in the picturesque savannah landscape full of lakes, rivers, lagoons and rock formations, such as the famous Elephant Rock. Wild cat lovers will especially get their money’s worth: The Yala National Park has one of the largest concentrations of leopards in the world. But you can also observe peacocks, crocodiles and monkeys up close.
For a genuine insight, take a jeep tour with our English-speaking wildlife biologist. He is a proven elephant expert, knows the park like the back of his hand and will guide you to the best places to get an undisturbed view of its fascinating inhabitants – of course without disturbing the animals in their daily routine.
The national park is only 14 kilometers away from the Thaulle Resort and can easily be visited before or after an Ayurveda treatment . You can book the half-day and full-day tours directly online or at the hotel . We would be happy to advise you on the selection for your perfect trip.
