May weather & where to go
May sees the start of a monsoon season, making this the beginning low season for Sri Lanka. This monsoon brings rains to the south and west coasts as well as the hill country.
May is a good month to go track leopards and elephants in Yala National Park as the weather continues to improve and provide them with more sunshine to bathe in.
Minneriya, Wilpattu and Uda Walawe are also great options for mixing up your wildlife safari and see a good range of animals and birds, including elephants and crocodiles.
