Safari Camping At Yala National Park


One Of Sri Lanka’s Great Experiences

Sri Lanka offers top of the range wildlife camping experiences set in private and exclusive wilderness locations at the door steps of Sri Lanka's major national parks. The Big Game Safari Camps are set up near to the park entrances, in jungle reservations where wildlife freely roam.

 

There are also exclusive options of staying in Mahoora mobile Tented Camps that are set up deep inside the parks as well.

 

Yala National Park is internationally renowned for being the best location to spot Sri Lankan leopards in the wild, and one area of the Park has been recognized as having the world’s highest density of leopards living in the wild.

 

Also found at Yala are herds of Asian Elephants, ferocious Sloth Bears, solitary Sambar Deer, Water Buffalo and huge Marsh Crocodiles at its watering holes.

 

For bird enthusiasts, the birdlife in Yala National Park is superb. Not only does Sri Lanka’s tallest bird, the critically endangered Black-necked Stork reside in the Park, but often observed is the country’s largest bird, the instantly recognizable Lesser Adjutant Stork.

 

The best leopard-spotting opportunities are generally first thing in the morning and then again at dusk.The male leopards in Yala National Park are surprisingly supremely confident animals and they are often seen walking the tracks during the day. Young males in particular seem to have no fear of the 4WD Jeep, which will certainly guarantee some excellent photographic opportunities.

"We have returned from an excellent holiday in Sri Lanka.

Elephant Island Tours is a truly customer focused organisation.Our first connect was with Justin in the London Office. He listened carefully to understand our particular needs and apparitions. We were most impressed by his speed of reply, helpful suggestions and advice. The tour fulfilled all our needs. You cannot overestimate the importance of the first contact - Thank you Justin.

The shop window of your organisation was our driver guide Mahendra. He proved to be very knowledgeable and a brilliant driver. He quickly became our friend. He was so helpful in all ways He never let us down. The car was more than adequate for our needs and always clean - Thank you Mahendra."

"I have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Sri Lanka where I booked a 6 day overland tour through Elephant Island.

Absolutely faultless. The detailed itinerary put together by Amanda at EI incorporated absolutely everything we wanted to do and gave us a fantastic overview of Sri Lanka, its culture, its wildlife and its history.

Our driver Rohan was exceptional. He drove us with care, explained everything in detail and offered us numerous additional stops for activities such as elephant rides, a look around Kandy market and a trip to Nuwara Eliya. I would make sure, next time I go to Sri Lanka, that I had Rohan driving me around.

If you're going to Sri Lanka you MUST book through EI! The whole process was so smooth and ensured that I had the most amazing time in what is surely one of the world's most beautiful countries."
