What better way to surround yourself in the sights and sounds of the Yala and Wilpattu National Parks than camping in the wilderness? Leopard Trails is a bespoke eco-friendly camping safari provider operating in two of the most popular national parks in Sri Lanka, where the main wildlife attraction is the leopard.
Yala in the southwest and Wilpattu in the northeast are the best places on the island to see the leopard, Asian elephant, sloth bear, deer, water buffalo, crocodiles and a plethora of bird species.
The mobile canvas tents include all the modern amenities you can expect in luxury accommodation. The large en suite tents have comfortable beds, lounge areas, al fresco showers and dining facility. A library to read up on Sri Lankan wildlife and hammocks for a comfy snooze are also available at the camping site.
Local cuisine is prepared with fresh ingredients by the chefs to your personal requests and needs. You can dine under the stars, enjoying a roaring campfire or in the lounge tent. Wine, beer and spirits as well as soft drinks and fruit juice are also provided. Snacks and drinks too are supplied on game drives. Charging points for electronic devices are available at the tent.
