I’m a open heart and helpful person, farther of two children. My main business is Gem Mining and my home town is Ratnapura - the world famous city for Sri Lankan Gems. But I presently lives in Colombo. Name of our wildlife bungalow is mentioning about one of the world’s most photographically valuable and unique behaved big cat - Leopard. The most important reason that international & local wildlife tourist attraction focused to “Yala” because of this unique behaved big cat. Not only leopards there are many animals in Yala, including Elephants, Deer, Monkeys, Crocodiles, various kinds of birds, reptiles etc; As we are bordered to the same jungle many animals are can see around our premises.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The Yala National Park is the most visited and attractive National Park in Sri Lanka. Our bungalow is the most closest one to the National Park. Yala has a very high demand because of the unique behaved big cat "Leopard". Not only Leopards there are Elephants, Deer, Sloth Bear and hundreds of varieties of mamas, birds and snakes at Yala. Yala is very close to Sri Lanka's one of the most attractive cultural destinations - Thissamaharamaya and Katharagama. Also nerby village of Kirinda is popular for fishing and Agriculture. So travelers who stays with us can feel the real Sri Lankan wild life and learn cultural activities and local farming and cooking Etc;
    Specially we needed to join people who love to been in the wild and who can enjoy the nature. Yala is situated in the southern part of the island and in the dry zone. So the most of the year we have a hot weather, specifically in the daytime. But in the dusk to dawn in my opinion Yala is the most beautiful and comfortable wild area to live. I'm a naturalist and we have so many books about wildlife and about animals of Sri Lanka. So Workawayers can lern much about nature and wildlife.
