    An honest review:Exceptional & ElevatingExperience

    From the bottom of our hearts we write this review with warmth & Appreciation Yala Safari Camping & its team is and will forever remain as one of our greatest experiences & memories as a couple & as a monumental time on our 3 week journey we called out honeymoon. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with kindness and a level of hospitality that could only be measured by the finest hotels as 5 Star treatment. Our expectations were brood & we left ourselves open & willing to whatever might have come. The overlooking view when you arrive of Yala National Park is absolutely breathtaking and one of a kind. Mahesh, Yala Safari Camping’s young & vibrant owner was personally there to ensure that our stay was nothing less than stellar. His energy & passion towards his company & his guests were evident every minute he was in our presence. He has created an atmosphere that is nothing less then extravagant among the natural and rugged wilderness. Ravi, the leading manager, is a man experience. His personable approach to the guest makes you feel as if there is not a thing impossible well staying with them. Ravi ran a very strong team, his leadership abilities shined through, and his staff held him to the highest standard, as he did his staff. Our Safari Driver, Ichi knew how to navigate the jungle better than anyone else in the park, & our friend & inspiration Kelum, the leading Chef at Yala Safari, delivered mouth watering meals that filled our bellies!

    Yala Safari Camping - fantastic experience

    Yala Safari Camping provided a great 'glamping' experience, with excellent canvas tents with proper beds and bathroom. The campground was lit in the evenings by candlelight to enjoy drinks and dinner. The location was the best in the area, providing great access to Yala national park without having to enter through any towns, keeping the safari experience real! The accomodation could be improved considering the cost to stay here, but overall we would definately go there again.
