Our first hour into the park on day one and our first leopard, a big male stalking spotted deer in the early morning light.
For those who don't want to think of the final outcome, he was unsuccessful this time around, but the setup of the hunt was incredible to watch.
Over the next few days we had a few quick sightings, but no photo ops. However, Yala is also known for its wild asian elephants. One small family in particular, which included a one month old baby, gave us a few incredible memories over a period of days. At one point they walked up to our jeep and began touching the hood and front bumper with their trunks. It seemed like these intelligent creatures were introducing the baby to this strange machine we were in. You could see the curiousity and amazement of the little one as it peered through the legs of the mother and aunt.
Hope you enjoyed this adventure update. Safe travels.
