Overview

Look for leopards and other animals on an overnight safari in Yala National Park, including two game drives. Travel to Sri Lankas second-biggest wildlife park, home to the worlds highest density of leopards; and after lunch, watch for these magnificent big cats, elephants, crocodiles and more on a late afternoon game drive with a qualified ranger. Enjoy a starlit dinner and sleep in a private, luxury tent before a dawn game drive and breakfast the next morning. Your trip includes round-trip transfers from different locations, plus three meals and accommodation.

Late in the evening enjoy your private Alfresco shower followed by drinks and appetizers around the campfire or in your lounge tent.

Dinner will be served at 9pm at one of many locations available through the camp. Dine under the stars for an unforgettable evening meal in the jungle experience. You will stay overnight at "The Naturalist campsite" that redefine the original tented safari with convenient modern-day amenities while staying true to the romantic ambiance of a British colonial era filled with adventure.
