Nat Geo Sri Lankan Leopards

Following our Mumbai adventure, Steve and I headed straight to Yala National Park in south-east Sri Lanka. Here, we teamed up with Kulu Safaris (their legendary owner Javana is pictured below) to film Yala's jungle leopards. 

Aside from the amazing diversity of wildlife (elephants to langurs, bee-eaters to crocodiles), the landscape was spectacular. Huge tracts of forest butted right up against the Indian Ocean. Dotted around the park, were huge rocky outcrops which exploded up out of the forest canopy. Pictured just above my right arm is the most famous of these outcrops- 'Elephant Rock' (no prizes for guessing its shape).
