1/2 day safari stay

Great one night stay with 1/2 day safari. Staff very friendly and helpful. Nothing too much trouble. Lunch and eve meal good. Nice to sit around the bonfire under the night sky. Great morning safari and lucky to see 4 leopards amongst many other animals and birds. Thanks to all the staff for making our stay one to remember

EXCELLENT

We stayed as an extension to my 50th birthday celebrations. When the team learned of this, they wanted to do Wilpattu (sister camp) ... and they succeeded. We did a full day safari with superb driver and guide. Food was excellent. Room was tent luxury. Clean, comfortable, out with nature and lovely views of the stars. The camp manager went out of his way to interact with guests. A real wildlife experience with a real human, personal touch.
