    Wilpattu National Park
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Previously declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1905, Wilpattu earned its status as a National Park on 25th February 1938. The northern section of Wilpattu was made as Wilpattu North Sanctuary on 7th November 1947. From 1988 the park was closed for security reasons due to the civil war in the country and it was reopened in February 2010 for local and foreign visitors. In terms of its wildlife, Wilpattu National Park is a major destination for the wildlife enthusiasts who are eager to capture a glimpse of one of the largest populations of leopards in the world. A remote camera survey conducted during October of 2015 identified nearly 50 individual leopards roaming the park and hence it is world renowned for its leopard density. In addition to the leopards, Wilpattu is also a habitat for 31 species of mammals. Among these mammals the Sloth Bear stands out while Asian Elephants, Spotted Deer, Barking Deer, Jackals, Sambhur, Barking Deer, Mouse Deer, Wild Pig, Water Buffalo, Mugger Crocodiles, Peacocks and many other migratory birds give the park a unique diversity of its own. In terms of the topography, Wilpattu is renowned for the huge number of lakes (Villus) found within the borders of the national park. It is calculated that the park has 60 lakes and hence the name Wilpattu itself is natural lakes in Sinhala. The topography of the park also consists of a 5 – 10 km coastal belt which is covered mostly with low scrubs and grasses such as salt grass. Further in towards the park, rather tall wooded forest can be found while a portion of ¾ is covered with dense forest and shrubs which is not accessible.
