Located to the south east of the island, the main physical features are sand dunes, lagoons, dry river, stream beds, rocky outcrops and scrub / thorn forest at 97,800 hectares, this is the second largest of Sri Lanka’s national parks. Its open undulating terrain made it famous for elephants for many years, but recently the park has also received much fame through publicity by National Geographic, BBC and the Discovery TV channels, which focused on a leopard research / conservation and identification project.
Claims have subsequently been made that Yala national park has the world’s highest concentration of leopard per square kilometer.
