Wildlife in Yala National Park, Sri Lanka 19 Jul 2017
About this photo
Visiting Sri Lanka's most famous national park, Yala, is a must-do in order to get up close to the country's diverse wildlife. Animals like leopards, elephants and crocodiles live here in close proximity, as seen by this cattle egret finding a comfortable perch on a water buffalo's head.
The national park offers 378 square miles of wild land, which can be discovered in many ways. Bungalows and camping allow a night time experience, while 4x4 safaris will get you up close to animals in daylight hours. Alternatively, you can chose to walk along beaches and through the bush for a more natural experience. Enjoy a guided tour of Yala and other national parks in Sri Lanka on Insight Guides' Sri Lankan Wildlife Discovery trip.
