Guided Nature Walks
Your guide will point out tiny insects and monkeys, the shoots and flowers of smaller plants and the tracks of animals on these easy walks. These small details often go unnoticed yet can sometimes be the most beautiful of all.
Our campsites are alive with birdsong and the twitch of feathers. Observe them from a hammock or your tent’s front porch or simply listen to the blissful sound of birdsong from your bed. Our staff are knowledgeable about the species in our area, and we have plenty of bird books to help you identify what you see.
Sri Lankan food is a treat for the taste buds! If you’ve loved what you’ve tasted at Leopard Safaris and are interested in learning about Sri Lankan cuisine, why not try one of our campsite cooking classes? After learning the secrets of Sri Lanka’s little-known cuisine, we’re confident you’ll be able to surprise family and friends with a delicious Sri Lankan meal.
Relax with a book
With many a place to sit out under the shade of a tree, or by the pool, it’s hard to imagine
a more relaxing place to recline, read and relax.
After your game drive in Yala you could extend your knowledge of the parks’ wild
inhabitants by browsing our Wildlife Library!
Take a trip to the ancient Buddhist monastery of Sithulpawwa, a sacred rock temple located deep in the heart of Yala National Park with a history over 2200 years. This secluded and spectacular spot is an unbeatable place to watch a sunset over the jungle.
We encourage each of our guests to plant a tree during their stay at our campsites and get actively involved in our various up-cycling projects. Re-forestation is becoming critical,
and this is only a small step, but every tree planted is a help in protecting the planet.
