Feast Among the Leopards and Elephants

Jungle Weddings at Yala Sri Lanka

The Yala National Park is the highlight of the region and the most popular national park in Sri Lanka. It covers 1268 sq. km. of brackish scrub, grassy plains and a light forest cover.
The park is divided into five blocks of which Block 1 contains the highest density of the Sri Lankan leopards in the world. There’s a wide variety of wild animals and over 200 recorded species of birds.
Apart from the wildlife, there is evidence of 1st and 2nd-century dagobas; remnants of the Ruhunu Kingdom. The ruins of Magul Maha Vihare is said to be the place where King Kavantissa and Queen Viharamaha Devi were married, making Yala perfect for a destination wedding in Sri Lanka.
Have your wedding on the rugged and windswept coast and be whisked away on a safari through the wilds looking for leopards, elephants and the ruins of an ancient monastery in the middle of the jungle.
