Instructions for a productive day out for the young leopard

Wilpattu National Park

Fun Facts

Wake up early and go for a brisk walk. This will help you to get the blood flowing to all parts of your body and also help to scope out the land for good breakfast options. Remember, nutrition is very important, it’s not all about gorging on deer, monkeys and wild boars! Get a good mix of food types in your breakfast; grab a few frogs as you slurp up your morning water, run with your mouth open and get some bugs into your system, stalk a land monitor and sink your teeth into its juicy meat and whilst you practice your jumps, grab a passing bird. A varied diet will make a leopard grow big and strong in no time!

Did you know?

Naps are very good for you and you can also have fun while you take one! Mess with the humans who love to gawk at us. Tease them as much as you can while you get in your essential late morning and afternoon beauty sleep. Just get up into the trees so that only your dangling tail is seen or lie down next to a log and just put up a paw for them to see. This drives them nuts!


The scrub is your friend, be one with it and practice your camoflauge routine as you walk about. A good place to try it out is the Mahoora campsite in Yala, the humans there are nice and won’t bother you even if you get it wrong.  Keep out of the hot sun and practice only in the early morning or evening. If you live up in the cool climes of the mountainous parks, feel free to practice anytime.




Much more than just a great place to stay

"Thanks to our guide Avinka we had five great safaris staying four nights just after reopening this February. The staff made us feel so very welcome during the entire stay.

The safaries are just wonderful, and having a great guide in your vehicle makes a big difference. Avinka can spot animals you would never see and we were even lucky enough to sight leopards on the trees, close to our vehicle, and also running through the field. The wildlife is so exciting that you will have a great experience even if you don‘t see any leopards. We also had a great driver, which is essential if you drive through difficult territory. You are being taken care of the entire time, so even for those who do safaris for the first time, you will always feel safe.

The camp itself is very comfortable, you get everything you can think of, and on top of the great food being served with so much attention and friendliness. You also get wonderful vegetarian and vegan options. They put on bonfires at night, which makes it unforgettable.
When booking and making plans, you get great support from the headquarters, even if it gets difficult since you have to change your plans.
The best thing what can happen to you at the end of a vacation is when you are a bit sad to leave the place, having experienced something to remember forever, and the team does everything for this to happen. Thank you so much"
