Leopard Trails Yala Bespoke Tented Camp
Wild Sri Lanka
During the grand era of the British dominion, Ceylon was one of the world’s most sought after locations for truly exotic expeditions. The 1800’s witnessed the arrival of British adventurers who brought with them well-furnished, spacious tents and a small army of butlers, expert cooks and local trackers. These bespoke safaris expertly anticipated every possible need or want of British explorers in the wild.
Today, Leopard Trails Bespoke Tented Safaris returns to this original spirit and the true essence of ‘safari’ – offering elegance, romance and adventure. Their small and intimate mobile safari camps can be found in the buffer zone of Sri Lanka’s exotic jungles where you can enjoy spectacular solitude and soothing comfort – with only the canvas walls of your spacious, ensuite safari tent separating you from the wonders of the surrounding, remarkable bio diversity. Your stay is inclusive of game drives, accommodation, drinks and meals served in a communal dining tent lit by hurricane lanterns. Jungle drives are conducted in 4WD vehicles by Game Rangers who are employed for their knowledge of Sri Lanka's jungles along with their ability to communicate with people from all over the world. These passionate and qualified individuals are fascinating company, and are the ideal ambassadors to teach you the seemingly invisible language of the bush.
Yala Camp’s main draw is the leopard as Yala National Park is said to have the highest density of leopards in the world. However, on a safari with Leopard
Trails, Yala's diverse wildlife will be showcased. On a two night stay it is possible to spot and identify over a 100 species of birds, view tusked
elephants, mugger crocodiles and at the end of the North-east Monsoon (February), the park is excellent for butterflies. Join Leopard Trails
for an authentic back to nature experience that needs to be experienced to be appreciated.
