INTRODUCTION TO THE PARK

Yala National Park (also known as Ruhunu National Park) is placed over on an ancient civilization that dates back to the 5th century B.C. While it is one of the 70 Important Bird Areas in Sri Lanka, it is also assumed that the park is host to one of the highest densities of leopard in the world. Sitting at the arid region in the Island with less than 1000mm of annual rainfall, the park receives its major rains mostly during the North east monsoon that breaks from December till February. Light showers are also experienced late March and April as well as October and November during the inter-monsoon.


Annual Park closure - Please note usually the Yala National Park (Block 1 & Block 2 zones) will be closed from 1st of September till end of October. as an alternative the safari will be conducted either at Yala Block 5 or Lunugamvehara National Park which is next to Yala.
