What you'll do

Identifying individual leopards is a rather tricky yet exciting technique. We will meet online to talk about mastering the art of identifying individual leopards and to talk about electrifying leopard stories.
Over the discussion of one and quarter hour, you will learn the most accepted means of leopard identification and some thrilling stories around some of the names.
While we learn how to ID leopards together, we will be able to reveal the secretive lives of these elusive big cats via photographs and videos.
We are going to have a brief discussion about leopard distribution and behavior prior to getting to grips with identification techniques. And we are going to have a chat about why identifying individual leopards is so important for conservation. You will also hear some funny stories regarding the leopard behavior.
Throughout the whole time you can get answers to all of your burning questions (Why leopards mate more than 25 times a day?! Etc.) This is going to be an educational and informative experience for everyone.

Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.

After completing my degree in Zoology, I found my passion in safari guiding which allows me to track leopards on a daily basis for travellers across the world.So I am a safari guide in Sri Lanka working for a company called Leopard Trails - Sri Lanka's leading luxury tented camps at Yala and Wilpattu national park, two of the best places in the world to observe leopards in the wild.Naturally I am passionate about leopards' behavior and conservation.I am particularly keen on identifying individual leopards because it helps paint a clearer picture of the secret lives of these elusive cats.This knowledge is vital for the future conservation of these big cats.It also makes for great storytelling around the campfire.I look forward to sharing a variety of experiences, stories and photos to share with you and answering most of your questions.

It was great to go on the leopard safari with my family. Dhanula noticed we had one child (5 years old) and he immediately adjusted things to make her feel included. We all enjoyed getting outside and "walking around" on safari while not leaving the comfort of our COVID-restricted homes.

This was a wonderful experience and a great learning opportunity. Dhanula is an expert on leopards and other wild cats. We learned the difference between leopards, cheetahs and jaguars and even learned how to identify individual leopards. Dhanula used a variety of slides and film clips to illustrate his stories and information. Highly recommend!

This field trip was so fun for my students! The host was engaging, kind, and informative. Dhanula shared incredible stories, photos, and videos of jaguars.

We booked a private group with 2 other families which made it an intimate experience, allowing more family members to participate and well worth the cost savings. Dhanula is a kind, friendly, extremely knowledgable and fun host. It was such a unique and interactive experience for the kids and we learned so much from him!

Dhanula's expertise and enthusiasm for the topic make this a great experience. My 12 year old son and I had a great time learning all kinds of interesting facts, including how to identify individual leopards and how they are named. Everyone in the group was encouraged to participate, and questions were encouraged (my favorite being "Who is King of the Jungle?) and readily answered in detail. What also set this experience apart is Dhanula's experience as a safari guide who shares with us his everyday, real-world experience with leopards in their natural habitat - for example he screens his own video footage of the cats in action (and you can even hear researchers off-camera making comments about what they are observing). Recommend for adults and kids!

Really informative and interactive! Great for kids 6+ but my 5 year old did a great job with participating in a way he hadn’t before and that was amazing to see. He’s also developed an even greater interest in leopards and retained a lot of the information
