Best National Parks in Sri Lakna

  • Minneriya National Park: This park has its own great migration as vast herds of elephants flock to watering holes in the drier months creating incredible face-to-face encounters.
  • Udawalawe: Set to the backdrop of breathtaking Horton Plains, Udawalawe is best known for its stable elephant population as well as being home to the sporadic leopard.
  • Wilpattu: As the largest of the parks in Sri Lanka, this Land of Lakes presents the perfect setting for a remote safari. Discover sloths hanging above your head and elephants plodding through the forest thicket.
  • East Coast: This beautifully rugged coastline presents picture-perfect sunrises and is a beloved hotspot for an abundance of marine life including blue whales and dolphins.
  • Yala National Park: With one of the highest concentrations of leopards in the world, Yala is a haven for a vast array of wildlife including elephants, buffalos, crocodiles and even sea turtles who use the coastline as a nesting ground.

Travel Advice

  • How much does it cost to go on a safari in Sri Lanka? Sip sundowners from a safari lodge or stay mere meters away from wildlife in a tent. Depending on your accommodation, the time of year you travel and the length of your tour, a safari in Sri Lanka can vary from US $ 300 to $ 4K.
  • What is the best safari in Sri Lanka? With so many things to see and do that's a tough question! We help you to find the best safaris by listing the most popular safaris that are rated by past travellers. Feel free to browse through these tours to find your perfect safari.
  • What animals can you see on safari in Sri Lanka? Who needs lions when you have leopards! With succulent jungles and an equatorial climate, Sri Lanka is home to many exotic animals including buffalo, deer, dolphins, whales and of course, elephants which can be found at most national parks.
  • When should I visit Sri Lanka for a safari? What is the best time to visit Yala National Park?Sri Lanka is frequented by monsoons, so it is important to plan your trip. The best time to see wildlife is in the dry season from February to July when the vegetation is sparse and animals flock to water sources to quench their thirst.
  • How do I get to Yala National Park? If you don't mind a road trip or want to see more of the South Coast driving is a good option. However with little local transport options, the best way to get to Yala is by catching a domestic flight. We have tours with both transport styles to suit you and your budget!
