There are 2 entrances to the Yala National Park, Those are Tissamaharama & Katagamuwa. From the research they have identified that most of the leopard are living in Warahana area.

Since we are using the Katagamuwa entrance & we are passing the Warahan area & you can see the leopard 99%. It is 15 Minutes drive to Katagamuwa entrance from our office.

Wear light, cotton clothes such as T-shirts, Shorts/trousers which will help you be comfortable whilst traveling in the park. It is best to wear dark colored clothing that blends with the environment. Colors in shades of dark green, beige, brown and gray are good options. Bringing along a hat is also recommended.

A pair of binoculars is definitely recommended for getting close-up views of animals. a good supply of water is essential, and a stash of food. (E.g. Biscuits, fruits, sandwiches) will also come in handy especially during the morning around.

Bring your longest lens! That said, the Park and its surrounds affords many landscape opportunities and so a combination of lenses will be useful. A bean bag or tripod/mono-pod will also be handy for long lenses, although room for a tripod inside the vehicles may be limited, and will depend on how many people are present. Given the dusty conditions, also bring an extra pillow case or the like to cover your equipment when not in use.
