Yala National Park is the island’s premier wildlife reserve, home to leopards, sloth bears, elephants, crocodiles and birds. Our picturesque Yala campsite is situated in a nature-filled location just a stone’s throw from the park boundary, and has been landscaped in keeping with its natural setting. The site comprises dry zone forest, which shade the tents and keep the temperature within them cool. Hammocks and jungle chairs are strung up between them, inviting relaxation and welcome respite from the hot sun.
This close to the national park, there is no lack of wildlife inside the camp and you can expect to wake up to the sound of tropical birdsong every morning. The trees are also home to monkeys and squirrels, and the grounds alive with reptiles such as frogs and prehistoric-looking monitor lizards. Sometimes, elephants can be spied on the edge of the park’s boundary.
