An amazing experience Kevin. It is wonderful to be able to travel to these wildlife destinations. To camp in nature is just amazing.

What a fabulous experience you had in the Yala Game Reserve within leopard trails. I was at the lodge at the entrance to the park in December 2004, just prior to the Tsunami and experienced a wonderful two days of animal sightings, most notably the elephants. I wasn’t as fortunate in leopard sightings, only seeing one at a distance. It was a beautiful drive as you say via Knuckle Mtn and I came from Kandy to Yala. I was saddened to learn just a few days after my stay, everything was destroyed and all my friends on staff were lost by this cruel act of nature. I know they’ve rebuilt and I hope that many more people will have the opportunity to experience the riches of this reserve. Thank for your blog.

That sounds like and looks like it was an absolutely incredible experience!! The leopard photos are brilliant too! The Sri Lankan leopards make the Londolozi ones look small, the big males can weigh over 90 kgs!! Would love to see them myself one day!

What an intriguing trip! I think I may have to go there! Thanks for sharing, Kevin!

Beat me to it Callum, Sri Lankan Leopards supposedly bigger and more powerful than their African cousins?
