Silversea Luxury Cruises To Kirinda (Yala National Park)

Kirinda is located just south of the Yala (Ruhuna) National Park — our main point of interest for the day. Yala’s history as a wildlife sanctuary goes back more than 114 years and it was declared a National Park in 1938. Situated in the southeast of Sri Lanka, the park covers 979 square kilometers (608 mi2). A wide variety of wild animals live in the park, including one of the highest densities of leopards in the world and the Sri Lankan elephant. View more

Of the 215 bird species found here six are endemic. Its importance for birds is shown through the Kumana Bird Sanctuary. Yala has a variety of ecosystems — from moist monsoon forests to marine wetlands — so not only birders will want to visit this exceptional National Park.
