Info

Wilpattu offers different habitats to animals. Due to its proximity to the coast, some parts of the park consist of a coastal belt. In addition, there are scrub and grasslands, rocky outcrops, villus, and packets of thick jungles. At one point, the park was home to a great leopard population, which has reduced since then. However, the population is slowly increasing, so you still have the opportunity to spot one of these sleek big cats.
