Wild times in Sri Lanka

We had to settle for paw prints in the powdery dirt of a pot-holed road and not the leopard itself.

Of course, it’s a bit much to expect to see one of the iconic big cats in the wild. 

We were hoping for just that, though, during our jeep safari at Yala National Park on the east coast of Sri Lanka. About an hour into our three-hour ride, the driver pulled the jeep to a halt and began speaking excitedly in Sinhala and gesticulating towards a treeline about 200 metres away. Our guide translated: The driver said he’d seen a leopard jumping up into a tree, though binoculars and my long-lens camera showed nothing but a leafy wall of branches.
