August weather & where to go
August is an inter-monsoon month, so you can expect the odd short shower but the weather is generally wonderful all round. Across the whole of Sri Lanka, the weather is nice and hot, sticking to an average of about 29°C, not dissimilar to July.
When it comes to wildlife, leopard tracking in Yala National Park is wonderful at this time, and with such beautiful weather it is a great excuse to try camping out in the national park.
In Minneriya National Park, the Asian elephants are still gathering around the water tanks to drink from Sri Lanka’s far reaches, a wonderful spectacle to witness on your holiday.
