It covers only a small portion of the island, 88.64 km2 to be precise, but they're home to half of all endemic and native species, including elusive cats and slender loris.
When it comes to Sri Lanka safari wildlife tours, the island nation is most famous for majestic Asian elephants and leopards, (one of the five "big cats"). This small island holds the world record for the highest leopard density in the world, here leopards are super large since they are the highest-ranking formidable predators on the island, they have evolved more like a jaguar with more muscular, more powerful maybe even more powerful than a jaguar, they roam National parks proudly with no idea of fear whatsoever. Not to mention the country has the highest density of elephants in Asia. Also, the world's largest elephant gathering happens here in Minneriya. This miracle island is not ready to stop there and push its limits to the Indian ocean and making it possible to witness the world's largest whale gathering.
If you are looking for a leopard safari, Yala and Wilpattu are the best in terms of spotting leopards mainly due to their leopard density. Yala has its prime advantage because it is more like a savanna, mostly scattered with shrubs, grasslands, and occasional big trees. If you are into elephants best parks are Udawalawe and Minnariya.

Things you need to know about Safaris, beforehand.
Sri Lanka is a must-visit Safari destination in the world. A small island nation filled with hundreds of endemic species is a big draw to do a safari. The best way to have a wildlife encounter is to take a Safari Game Drive in a National park in Sri Lanka. Below you can find some of the most valuable information that nobody tells beforehand. I am sure this will clear any doubt you having what to expect on the tour itself.
It is definitely a bumpy ride.
Well, This is wilderness, so do not expect a comfortable ride like you are on an expressway, jeeps have comfortable seats with local standards and have pretty good suspensions, however, they can't absorb a sudden jerk as high-performance vehicles handle shocks.
So hold on to something and do not forget to have a good grip on your camera, unless you want it to fly away into the wilderness.
If you are on a wildlife photography tour, let Go4safri know about it beforehand. They will make arrangements for that.
Just sitting in the front row will reduce the shocks to a great extent, and the last row will have the exact opposite reaction. The last row is directly over the wheels so you will experience lots of bouncing effects. teenagers might like it.
While you are on a narrow trail watch out for tree branches, most come with thorns.
What to wear during the Safari.
It's not like Man vs Wild appeared on the Discovery channel, you are not crawling through mud with elephants, anyway, you are not allowed to step outside of the vehicle, in most locations, unless your park ranger permits you to do so, it's park rules.
However, your clothes, hair, and face might get dusty, If you prefer to stay clean no matter what, do not forget to bring a wet wipe to clean off your face.
The big picture about what you can wear is, that you can wear whatever you want, consider the blazing sun when you select your clothes.
You may get sun sunburn.
Do not forget to have sunscreen or shades. Locals can endure the heat, but not you. most of the vehicles (jeeps) have a roof, but the sun won't stay on top, most of the time.
Other important things that you should know about.
If you want to take photographs coordinate with your driver for stopping the vehicle while it is moving or you want to get into a perfect spot for your photograph, Put your camera on sport mode and keep it ready at all times, you don't know when you will encounter amazing wildlife in its natural habitat.
You will have bathroom breaks when you have your picnic breakfast and picnic lunch, if you need any additional bathroom breaks just tell the driver, but it will disrupt the Game-Drive so only drink adequate liquids.
One more thing, you will not be the only vehicle doing the tour, popular national parks have more jeeps, having the same goal as you, so you have to take it easy about the traffic jam, for the sake of the country’s incredible wildlife, you are about to witness.
