Our chefs serve you freshly prepared, homemade authentic
Sri Lankan food cooked with love.

Food is an integral part of your stay at Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safaris and many of our clients tell us it’s the best they’ve had in Sri Lanka.

Our devoted camp chefs cook from the heart, and prepare traditional Sri Lankan food using locally grown fruits and vegetables, some of which grow in our Yala kitchen garden. Our chefs can adapt our menus and we can cater to all dietary requirements.

Dining at Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safaris is extremely memorable thanks to the flexibility of our campsites, which afford many exciting and varied dining destinations. Enjoying evening drinks and meals around a campfire under a ceiling of sparkling stars is a highlight of any stay. Dining is usually a communal experience, however honeymooners can enjoy private dining on request.

All of your meals, drinks and snacks are included in the nightly rate, and for budding cooks we also offer hands-on Sri Lankan cookery demonstrations.

We are serving a set menu at the camps, but are happy to customize it to your taste.
