Leopard Trails, Wilpattu National Park

If you want to see the full range of Sri Lanka’s wildlife it makes sense to head for the country’s largest national park. And if you want to see leopards…

Leopard Trails Wilpattu is the place to stay on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Sri Lanka. And it isn’t just tracking leopards through dense Sri Lankan jungle that will give you the authentic safari experience. At Wilpattu you’ll be sleeping in authentic safari tents, with canvas walls and roofs, so the sounds of nocturnal animals hunting and calling to each other through the night will accompany – and perhaps inform – your dreams.

And in the daytime you’ll see them. Asian elephants and sloth bears. Spotted, barking and mouse deer. Mugger crocodiles and water buffalo. Brown-capped babblers and white-rumped shama. Purple-faced langurs and ruddy mongooses. Indian rock python and Sri Lankan hornbills. The list of wildlife and birds you’ll see in in Wilaputtu is almost endless.
