Increased Leopard sightings in Uda Walawe.
The naturalist for Mahoora camping, Thilak Obeysekera, who has been based in Udawalawe Mahoora Camp for more than a month now, informs us that Leopard sightings in Uda Walawe are on the rise. The highlight has been the sighting of two leopards on June 7 at Habakagala Rock. This is good news for all wildlife lovers especially for those who do not want to make the long drive up to Yala National Park. Udawalawe National Park is possible as a day trip from the south coast and it’s an ideal excursion during a beach holiday.
