Bespoke tented safaris, Leopard Trails will take you on a journey through Yala National Park in search of some incredible wildlife and nature experiences. Taking inspiration from the first British adventurers in the times of wild Ceylon, the camp promises to give you an authentic safari you'll never forget.

You will arrive at your camp and home for the duration of your stay. Enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by the chef followed by some down time to get used to your surroundings. At around 3.30pm you will head on an evening safari. Each vehicle is designed to allow optimum comfort and space during a game drive, allowing you to get the best vantage point of Sri Lanka's most incredible wildlife.

In the evening head back for drinks by the campfire swapping stories, a hearty meal and time to relax under the stars. There is even a library where you can get stuck into a good book.

The accommodation is made up of spacious waterproof tents each with en-suite bathrooms. Classic Tents all come with a/c and each have their own open air shower. There are also Luxury Tents which benefit from more space and an indoor shower with solar powered hot water and air-conditioning.

Make sure you get a good night's sleep in preparation for your morning safari. In the early hours of the morning rise early and go in search for a glimpse of the elusive leopard and other fascinating animals.
