Leopard Safari Wilpattu National Park

Wilpattu National Park was one of the first national parks to open in Sri Lanka.
It has an interesting history and is significantly larger than Yala National Park
providing more ground to cover on a leopard safari.
Due to the extent of the park spotting a leopard is harder,
but the experience is exciting in other ways and you can really bring out
your inner intrepid explorer as you follow hot on the trail of this jungle cat.

The exact number of leopards at Wilpattu is presently unknown
but they are generally spotted alongside the park's villas or water basins
that can be found in abundance and lend the park its name.
Due to its extensive acreage Wilpattu is better suited to longer stays
and due to its proximity to both Anuradhapura and Kalpitiya,
a leopard safari at Wilpattu can easily be done in conjunction
with whale and dolphin watching or a historical tour.
