Take in the exotic enchantment of the sights and sounds of the beautiful Asian elephants, feisty and elusive leopards, hairy sloth bears, the genteel deer, flamboyant birds and more exquisite creatures of Sri Lanka's wildlife. There are 22 National Parks in Sri Lanka, and the most popular four, Yala, Wilpattu, Minneriya and Udawalawe, contain some of the most impressive wildlife found in Asia.
A safari in one of these parks will give you the chance to see some of Sri Lanka’s 91 mammals (16 endemic) - including sambar deer, and monkeys such as the macaque, purple-faced leaf monkey and grey langur.
