    Our opinion

    Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safaris offers the best in safari camping in Sri Lanka, with a real sense of luxury and great facilities.

    Hotel description

    With two campsites in Sri Lanka, one in Wilpattu National Park and one in Yala, Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safaris offers guests the choice between the well-trodden plains of Yala and the lesser-visited park of Wilpattu. Each camp is comprised of semi-permanent tents, each with a great sense of privacy and the welcome additions of modern amenities and electricity. These campsites are recommended for those looking to enjoy the ‘wild’ setting of a traditional safari, but with the comforts of excellent accommodation. Sturdy four-poster beds, curtained windows, classic en-suites, and peaceful verandas act as attractive finishing touches. Sheltered sitting areas provide respite at the end of a day’s game drives, and flavoursome Sri Lankan cuisine is served around the camp table, creating a vibrant feeling of community. Other activities at the campsites include star-gazing and a photography class, and guided nature walks, and visits to nearby temples can also be arranged. To complete your stay in Yala or Wilpattu, enjoy a refreshing drink around the campfire, or relax with a book in one of the hammocks.
