From the unfathomable color of the Blue Mist to the prowling of the Leopard, the stylish stillness of the Painted Stork to the charging of the Elephant, Yala National Park is full of fragrance and ferocity. Its savage secrets date back millions of years in geological history, and are woven into myths and legends of the ancient Kingdom of Ruhuna.
This is where the thrill of your stay with us truly begins.
Nature enthusiasts everywhere will benefit from our extensive knowledge of this land, as we guide you through hard facts of the behavior and social structures of all living things with entertaining stories. You will be moved through thorns and thickets in the utmost comfort as we perform the art of tracking both on wheels and by foot.
The language of birds, the alarm calls that identify predators lurking nearby, the biotic and abiotic components of Sri Lanka’s dry zone jungles — we will guide you through it all.
We are aware that those who hear the call of the jungle have their own personal relationship with it, just as we do. And how can we not make special arrangements for those of you traveling with your cameras when each of us keeps ours so close at hand.
We invite you to climb into a 1982 Land Cruiser, modified with removable seats and a forward folding windscreen, equipped with beanbags, clamps, tripods and monopods, complete with those of us who take photography seriously on board to make sure you have the right light and positioning.
We credit our teammate Indika Nettigama with the details of this specialized adventure. An experienced wildlife photographer in his own right who will go out of his way to make sure you capture the right angles.
Rangers are creative and passionate; the creative hub is their playground where collectively, wildlife photography, Ceylon Wild conservation updates, educational video making and leopard abundance research profiles are all brought together in this temple of creativity. Guests are free to join our team in the creative hub to put experience to paper and merge the wilderness with an artistic form.
Join our passionate birding guides not only on game drive but also on a stroll in the vicinity of the camp to see what exciting tropical birds you can find. The birds of Sri Lanka are splashed in beautiful colours that only nature can create, and there is no better way to appreciate them than to learn about them from our experienced birding team.
Like glitter thrown across a canvas, the jungle offers a clear view of the night sky. A magical experience is brought to light by our rangers as they use a lazer pointer to translate a story told by the stars.
