Accommodation and Safaris at Wilpattu National Park Sri Lanka

The Wilpattu National Park is the largest and oldest national park in Sri Lanka. It was widely regarded as the place to spot the Sri Lankan Leopard in its natural habitat. It is also home to endangered animals such as the Sri Lankan Sloth Bear and the Sri Lankan Elephant.


Finding right accommodation in Wilpattu National Park Sri Lanka

To cut down on travel time, a Mahoora tented safari camp is one of the best and most convenient accommodation options, especially at Wilpattu where the extensive acreage means that you have to drive a longer distance to where the animals are. Unlike staying in a traditional hotel, Mahoora tented safari camps allow you to feel that you are truly a part of the great outdoors.

Choosing this option means that you will have the privilege of being the first in and the last out of the Park when on a safari drive. For more details on Mahoora tented safari camping options on the borders of Wilpattu National Park, check out our accommodation page. However if you still feel that you would prefer hotel style accommodation then let us know and we will arrange it for you, though please note that accommodation in these parts is more of a rustic kind.

Getting the most out of your Wilpattu National Park Safari

Due to the fewer number of visitors, the wildlife within the confines of the Wilpattu National Park has hardly had contact with humans. The animals are therefore often shy unlike those in Yala, making the need for an experienced guide even greater, one which Mahoora can provide.  4WD safari jeeps are the best way in which to explore the varied terrain.

The Sri Lankan Leopard is a recognized subspecies of the Indian Leopard and is currently the largest species of leopard living in Asia. The Wilpattu National Park is known for its numerous opportunities to film and photograph these wonderful animals which are often seen lying beside the Park’s many villus.  In addition, Wilpattu is also home to Sri Lankan Sloth Bears, which are highly threatened with less than 1,000 numbers currently living in the wild. Sloth Bears are best seen during the fruiting season of the Palu Tree which is from June to July. Observing endangered animals in the wild is a privilege that this National Park has to offer and it is definitely one that you will cherish for a lifetime.

Many species of Owl, Tern, Gull, Eagle, Kite and Buzzard along with the Painted Stork, Sri Lankan Junglefowl and the Little Cormorant can be found at the Wilpattu National Park.  Wetland birdlife includes the Garganey, Pintail, Whistling Teal, Spoonbill, White Ibis, Large White Egret, Cattle Egret and Purple Heron.
