Many people go to this northern wildlife park to see leopards, which has 38 of them, and never do. We saw two in a day, including one that put on a show in the road just a few meters. The price is cheaper than Yala...More

We were in the park on 13th and 15th April afternoons. Saw Bear, Leopard, lots of Deer, a few Elephants and many species of birds. It was wet and gloomy which in turn had its plus and minus side. The cooler climate meant that animals...More

The best park in Sri Lanka! Much less crowded than Yala, with a greater sightings of Leopards. In my three night stay I was fortunate to spotted 6 all together. Highly recommended!

We did two safari trips at 14:00 and 06:30 the following day. The park was very busy, at numerous points we were in a convoy of 5 or 6 jeeps which doesn't make for the most enjoyable experience, especially the way the drivers jostle, reverse...More

We absolutely loved our stay at Wilpattu Treehouse and our full day safari at Wilpattu National Park. If it’s mandatory to see leopards this may not be the place for you...go to Yala or Botswana. They’re hard to see and it’s blind luck but a...More

We set off very early (5am) to visit the national park and we were rewarded. We were very impressed on first sight as it seems very well organised and there is an educational aspect to the visit. The guides were incredible, they had eyes like...More

Wherever we go on safari, I don't like the question:' so what did you see?'. Because if I were to say: we saw amazing plants, eagles, beeeaters..., people just switch off. In Africa, they only want to hear if you have seen the big 5,...More
