“Noel Rodrigo's Leopard Safaris can be found in two sites on opposite sides of Sri Lanka: Yala National Park and Wilpattu National Park. Whichever one you choose, you'll experience a boutique safari experience in comfortable tents, and the chance to fully immerse yourself in the jungle. The camps also come with an eco-friendly focus, with solar-powered lights, energy-saving air conditioning and recycled timber.”

Accommodation is in spacious canvas tents with a choice of double, twin, triple, and family tents. Each tent has a separate sleeping and lounge area, and en suite with hot water shower and flush toilet. Owning to its more permanent location, the camp at Yala has some luxury lodges, perfect for honeymooners, along with a saltwater pool.
The camp chefs prepare a range of traditional Sri Lankan cuisine using locally grown, seasonal fruits and vegetables. Dining is usually a communal event, held under the stars.
