Experience Sri Lankan Leopards and Sri Lankan Sloth Bears in the Wilpattu National Park

Wilpattu National Park is home to two very special animals: the Sri Lankan Sloth Bear and the Sri Lankan Leopard. The Sri Lankan Sloth Bear is an omnivorous species that relies heavily on the forest for its survival. The steady decline of forests on the island has severely impacted this animal, leading to its classification as a threatened species. It is estimated that as few as 1,000 Sri Lankan Sloth Bears remain today. Wilpattu National Park may offer you a unique opportunity to see this rare animal while on safari in Wilpattu National Park.

The other notable animal in Wilpattu National Park is the Sri Lankan Leopard, which everyone eagerly hopes to spot. The Sri Lankan Leopard is a subspecies of the Indian Leopard and is currently the largest leopard in Asia. These leopards can often be seen near the villus (lakes) within the park, providing excellent opportunities for filming and photography. A safari in Wilpattu National Park not only allows you to witness these magnificent creatures but also to experience the diverse and rich wildlife the park has to offer. Exploring Wilpattu National Park is a thrilling adventure for nature enthusiasts and wildlife photographers alike.
