Just visited Yala National Park - and it definitely is a MUST VISIT place! It's beautiful, it's convenient and its cost effective. A full day safari for 12 hours for one person cost me only INR 9000!
The leopards are like tigers there - confident, in their own territory, rulers of the place. And they are all around!
I recommend Mevan very highly for the trip. Especially if you are keen wildlifers and prefer to be the first in and last out of the Park.
Any specific queries do ask directly. General info:
It is not raining in Yala.
June-July are good leopard months.
A spotted dear call is perfect in Yala.
Female leopards hunt down big Sambhar deers
Even in a non birding month the park was full of action moments with multiple species.
Try to avoid going on weekends if you can.
If you have time and resources Yala is best combined with Wilapattu and Sinharaja forest.
