Sri Lanka Leopard Safari
Trek Leopards in the wild
Head off into the wild of this fascinating National Park in a special 4x4 safari jeep to discover Sri Lanka's leopards. The whole experience is an exciting adventure, exploring the park's roads and jungle with your own sharp eyed local guide who knows the park inside out and is expert in trekking these stunning creatures.
Leopards tend to be more easily seen in Sri Lanka compared to other places, such as Africa. This is because in Sri Lanka the leopard is the top of the food chain, being the main predator. Whereas in Africa leopards share their habitat with more dominant competitors, such as lions or hyaenas.
