Yala National Park is a haven of wondrous natural beauty and vibrant wildlife. It’s located towards the south of Sri Lanka, facing the Indian Ocean. Here are some facts that may come in handy when you’re planning your next visit here.
About Yala National Park
Five zones make up Yala. Zones 1 and 5 are the only two that are accessible to the general public and visitors. Due to the absence of safari jeeps, a sizable amount of the park can be left as an animal’s native habitat.
When to visit
The park is open all year round, and it doesn’t matter when you go because animal sightings take place all year long. February is the peak season, but there are lots of possibilities to see wildlife and enjoy a pleasant temperature in Sri Lanka any time of year.
How early to wake up
Your guides will tell you to start your safari pretty early and it’s with good reason; the earlier you go, the better your chances of sighting the animals. They’re still waking and stirring, most often on your safari paths early in the morning.
How many days should you spend?
There are many Yala hotels boasting various luxuries and unique experiences, such as Cinnamon Wild Yala. If you’re making a booking at one of these, you ought to check out the packages and offers they have. Otherwise, two nights will cover around four safaris on the reservation.
