    Our opinion

    A luxury campsite with very comfortable accommodation.

    Hotel description

    Leopard Trails is a luxury mobile tented camp, where you can enjoy the adventure of a bygone era in comfort, with fresh, regional cuisine prepared for each meal and served around a communal dining table. Tents are offered on an all-inclusive basis. Priding itself on the bespoke quality of the service, Leopard Trails is finished with all the luxuries of a hotel room, but with the wilds of the Yala National Park on your doorstep. En-suite tents are spacious, light, and comfortable, with electric lighting, full plumbing, crisp sheets, and authentic wooden furnishings. During the day, game drives afford unmissable opportunities to witness the native animals of Sri Lanka in their natural habitat, including the Leopard, after which the camp is named. The central lounge tent is the perfect place to relax with a book, listening to the sounds of nature, at the end of the day.
