When to visit Bandhavgarh National Park


Best Time to Visit

Wilpattu _MG_9571 September 10, 2012-2.jpg


Sri Lanka has some remarkable weather for such a small island that varies massively. The best times to visit Yala National Park and Wilpattu National Park are during the months of March and September where the sky is at its clearest, with very little rain. This time of year is great for all wildlife photography and give plenty of light for action shots.

Great time of year to photograph wild Leopard, good lighting to bring out the colours

This time of year provides dryer weather and is not as humid as the other parts of the Island where the rain will occur

The water tables get low during this time and animals come out to exposed lakes to drink bringing you great photographic opportunities

March in Yala and Wilpattu holds still colour in its leaves for making your Leopard photography stand out form other leopard photographs

During this photographic Leopard Adventure, you will stay at two luxurious camps that will be situated just outside each National Park. Each Camp is surrounded by the regular visitors of local wildlife and is only one minute away from each park where the Leopards will be awaiting our arrival each day.

Both lodges hold large luxury tents that hold a peaceful environment for each guest to relax after each long day. Both lodges provide comfort in the wild where passing wildlife is free to walk through and around the camps. Each tent provides electricity for charging camera batteries so there is never a photograph opportunity to be missed.
