Leopard Safari at Wilpattu

At the Fig and Gecko, we have had great success in December & January in organising  very successful at sighting leopards, as well as their cubs (as well as bear, and elephants, cobra, and other wildlife). Every tour in January and December saw at least one leopard, most at less than 20 feet, and most saw 2, and one saw 3. The park is beautiful, and much of the day, you are driving slowly around the park without other jeeps in sight. When a leopard is spotted, you may be with up to 7 other jeeps, far less than in the other more visited parks in the south. Our tours of Wilpattu National Park are in an 8 person jeep (the cost of the jeep is divided between the occupants), and we are amongst the cheapest you'll find - and very successful. Why are we the cheapest? To encourage our guests to go, and to support the income growing work of GAFV and NGO. See our prices and itinerary at, and like us on Facebook @figandgecko , and follow us on instagram @FigandGecko , for updates.
