The place we stayed at Yale National forest had set up Jeep Safari for us. A little bit of history about the forest. Yala National park is the second largest park in the island. Covers a 979 square kilometers (378 square miles/ roughly 97000 hectares. This park is divided into 5 blocks, through safari we get to see through Block 1 and Block 2.
This forest consists of Asian Elephants, Leopards, Sloth Bear, Jackal and wide variety of Birds. During the Jeep Safari, I got to see Elephants, Jackal, Wild Buffalo’s, Deer, Mouse deer and Mongosse.
It was amazing to see these animals roam freely in front of your eyes in their natural environment.
It was amazing to see so many different animals living together. Some pictures of the Birds, I got to take.
The only disappointment was not getting to see a single Leopard, when that forest is know for Leopard. Jokingly I like to say that all of them went on vacation when I decided to go and see them. :):)
