The Romeo of Nelumwila | Ceylon wilderness updates

The Romeo of Nelumwila

Ears pointed forward, eyes focused on a target in the distance this spotted killing machine is getting ready for a hunt. This is one of the largest male leopards seen in the Wilpattu National park. Known with the frequent visitors as the male of Nelumvila this gorgeous predator is close to 4 years old. He’s seen courting many females around the park and has made his territory around Nelumwila and expanding the territory day by day.

The leopard subspecies you can see in Sri Lanka is physically larger due to being the top predator in the wilderness. These solitary hunters can be seen dosing off on tree tops after a big meal. Mahoora Tented Safari camps, Wilpattu offers an amazing safari experience for the guests with a personal naturalist so you won’t miss opportunities like this.

Wonderful stay at Mahoora Tented Safari Camp Yala

"From the moment we were picked up to the moment we sadly had to leave, Mahoora staff provided us with an experience we will never forget. We did 2 safaris, 1 afternoon and 1 the next morning. So lucky to witness leopard up close and be able to watch her hunt!!! 

 All staff at the camp are to be highly commended. We loved every minute of it and hope to be back for longer next time"
