Best Hotels to stay at your visit to Yala National Park

Yala National Park is situated in south eastern tip of Sri Lanka and it is famous for diverse wildlife and much loved Sri Lanka’s big three the apex predator the Leopard, the Elephant and the Sloth Bear. When you visit Yala National Park it’s better to book a accommodation in advance because it helps you to explore the Yala with ease in mind. The accommodation options are wide ranging from simple home stay guesthouses to luxury safari lodges.

Wild Coast Tented Lodge – “Glamping” doesn’t quite cut it when trying to describe Wild Coast Lodge. This is an ultra-luxurious, romantic safari experience, where the “tents” include teak floors, four-poster beds and handmade copper bathtubs. The entire hotel – from the classy bar to the snug library and TV room – has been built to blend into the landscape, a divine intersection of forest and ocean, where elephants, leopards and monkeys roam.

Cinnamon Wild Yala – The chalets at Cinnamon Wild Yala offer either beach or jungle panoramas from their wide, private verandas – but you’ll probably be torn between this view and the one from the treetop bar. If you want an extra-special dining experience, book dinner by the lake, watching out for the resident crocodiles (staff will escort you) before ending the evening on an infrared night drive, where you might spot leopards on the prowl.

Safari Lodge Yala – Sitting between Yala National Park and the holy town of Kataragama, Safari Lodge Yala is close to shops and restaurants, unlike many of the remote lodges around these parts, while still providing easy access to the most popular wildlife spot in Sri Lanka. Peacocks and other critters wander around the cobblestone paths and between the freestanding bungalows (which are great for families and small groups) – don’t forget to pick up a pre-packed breakfast if you’re heading out for an early-morning safari.

Jetwing Yala – One of the larger luxury Yala resorts, Jetwing Yala backs onto a prime stretch of rugged beach; time it right to watch turtles hatch (five of the main marine species make landfall on Sri Lanka’s south coast between April and July to lay their brood), or enjoy a bonfire-lit dinner on the sands. If rattling around in a safari jeep all day has left your bum bruised or shoulders shuddering, you’ll find numerous cures back at the hotel – take your pick from Balinese massages, a dip in the 75-metre-long (246ft) pool or a strong, cold cocktail.

Uga Chena Huts – Guests at Uga Chena Huts, another of Yala’s luxury-camping-like retreats, can enjoy morning and evening safaris every day of their stay, at no extra cost. But if that doesn’t convince you to splash out, perhaps the opulent digs will. The 14 huge thatch-roofed cabins sprawl out over 7 acres (2ha) of land, flanked by wildlife-packed Yala National Park and the crashing Indian Ocean. Every room has a private plunge pool, so if it’s seclusion you’re after, this is it.

EKHO Safari Tissa – With Yala National Park to the east, Bundala National Park to the west and a rugged coastline to the south, EKHO Safari Tissa is a fine launchpad for outdoor adventures and animal enthusiasts. Cosy earth-toned rooms overlook the sparkling pool, beyond which lie Tissa Lake and a verdant wildlife sanctuary. Take a wander around Tissa town to find an array of restaurants (try Chef Lady for top-notch seafood) and intricate Buddhist temples.

Dietary Habits of Sloth Bears in Yala National Park

Yala National Park, a jewel in Sri Lanka’s wildlife reserves, is home to a diverse range of species, including the elusive and fascinating sloth bear. These shaggy-coated mammals are a highlight for many visitors on a safari in Yala. Known for their distinctive feeding habits, sloth bears play a crucial role in the park's ecosystem. Safari in Yala National

Diet of Sloth Bears


Sloth bears (Melursus ursinus) have a varied diet that primarily consists of insects, fruits, and plants. Unlike other bear species that might be more carnivorous, sloth bears have evolved to take advantage of the abundant plant and insect life in their environment.

Yala National Park

Insects and Termites:


One of the primary components of a sloth bear’s diet is insects, particularly termites and ants. These bears are equipped with long, curved claws and a specialized lower lip, which they use to break into termite mounds and ant colonies. Once they have breached the insect nest, they use their powerful suction ability to suck up the insects, a behavior that has earned them the nickname "vacuum cleaners of the forest."

Yala National Park

Fruits:


Fruits form a significant part of the sloth bear's diet, especially during the dry season when insects are less abundant. The Palu fruit (Manilkara hexandra), also known as the Ceylon ironwood, is one of their favorites. Rich in nutrients and sugars, the Palu fruit provides essential energy for sloth bears. These fruits are typically available from June to August, aligning perfectly with the bears’ nutritional needs during this period.

Yala National Park

Foraging Behavior


Sloth bears are primarily nocturnal, foraging at night to avoid the heat of the day and potential predators. Their keen sense of smell guides them to food sources, allowing them to locate termite mounds and fruit trees with remarkable efficiency. During a safari in Yala, you might spot sloth bears rummaging through the underbrush or scaling trees in search of fruits.

Yala National Park

Termite Mound Excavation


When searching for termites, sloth bears exhibit a unique foraging behavior. They will use their claws to break open termite mounds, sometimes digging several feet into the ground. Once they reach the insects, they close their nostrils to prevent dust inhalation and use their lips to suck up the termites.

Yala National Park

Fruit Gathering:


In the fruiting season, sloth bears are often found near fruiting trees, such as the Palu. They are adept climbers and will climb trees to access ripe fruits. The Palu tree, with its dense clusters of fruit, attracts sloth bears from all over the park. The bears will spend considerable time feeding on these fruits, which are crucial for their sustenance.

Yala National Park

Ecological Impact


The foraging activities of sloth bears have significant ecological implications. By breaking into termite mounds and ant colonies, they help aerate the soil, promoting plant growth. Additionally, their fruit-eating habits aid in seed dispersal, contributing to the regeneration of forested areas within Yala National Park.

Understanding the dietary patterns of sloth bears in Yala National Park provides a glimpse into the intricate web of life that sustains this unique ecosystem. From their insect hunting to their love for the Palu fruit, sloth bears exhibit fascinating behaviors that can be observed on a safari in Yala. These nocturnal foragers play a vital role in maintaining the health of their habitat, making them an integral part of Yala's rich biodiversity. For those lucky enough to spot a sloth bear in the wild, it’s a remarkable experience that highlights the incredible diversity of Sri Lanka’s wildlife.
