Originally we hadn't planned to stay here but we were SO pleased we did. It really is fantastic. The tent was extremely comfortable with plenty of hot water for our shower. It was amazing to listen to the water buffalo munching grass outside the tent in the middle of the night. The food and service were excellent, nothing seemed to...

The park consists of 5 "blocks" - #s 1 and 5 for tourists, with #s 2, 3, and 4 for wildlife. This camp was close by an alternate entrance to #1 ("Main" entrance was far away and very crowded). #5 was a 50 minute drive away, but worth the trip. One "tusker" elephant was by the uncrowded road and we...

Very friendly and helpful camp, well placed to visit Yala NP - away from the busy towns and resorts. Staff were really good, and lots of food. Tents authentic. Good quality jeeps for the game drives, and a naturalist accompanies you which I think make the drives so much better. Only one comment, bit of feedback, the food and dining...

Bordering the less crowded side of Yala park the experienced team at Kulu ensures probably the best chance to see the elusive leopards of Sri Lanka. With ideal safari vehicles and excellent guides they just know how to make a safari experience worthwhile. When you return to the tented safari the conveniences and service is simply 5 star.
