We don't do Just Yala Safaris. We Curate Experiences that Makes Unforgettable Memories.

PROFESSIONAL, ETHICAL AND SUSTAINABLE YALA SAFARIS,
OFF THE BEATEN TRACK!

Yala – One Night Glamping with 2 Safaris

If you are looking for the best Leopard Safari or the Guided Yala Safari in the island, you are at the right place!

Started as a Small and Exclusive Safari Camp with 4 Tents in Yala, We now Serve the Same Unique and Exclusive Experience to Sri Lanka’s Best National Parks for Leopard Safaris: Yala, Kumana, and Wilpattu.

We have put years and miles into planning and carrying out safari tours that are the most wanted by all travelers, off-the-beaten-track exclusive Yala safari away from the crowds.

Sustainability is our middle name! All our camps and partnering properties support both the environment and the community. We believe in being a good business while ensuring your Yala safari in Sri Lanka has a positive impact on the island. More about this on a different post!

Our Yala Safari Glamping Promise.

Whether it’s wanting to see a LeopardΒ or other flora & fauna, spend a romantic time in the bush with riverside picnics, river dips, and candlelit dinner under the stars, or have your family have an amazing time as simple as staying in a safari camp where your kids can toast marshmallows over the campfire and learn about nature with our rangers, or getting a gaggle of teenagers more interested in the experience than their latest post on social media, WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED!

All our tours are conducted in Top National Parks of Sri Lanka with the highest population of Leopards with the probability of seeing one or more during your tour with a minimum footprint on nature.

However, we CANNOT GUARANTEE any leopard sightings as these are wild animal tracking tours into national parks, not zoological gardens. If you want to see a leopard guaranteed, the best is to visit a Zoo. πŸ™‚

Awesome Full Day Safari with Marc We went on a safari! For us it was important that it is a sustainable one. That means for us: no 10 jeeps chasing and harassing an animal always fighting for the best spot. Furthermore, the provider should always put the protection of the animals first. We found this with campleopardyala. We booked a full day safari. And since there is less going on because of Corona, we were on our own with the guide Marc and our driver. Included was a breakfast and lunch. On request for us from vegetarian/vegan. Marc has an absolutely impressive knowledge of the animals in the park and has a little story to each of them with background information. We were able to choose which part of the park we wanted to go. And Marc was overjoyed when we said we didn't want to do the crowded block 1, but the secluded ones. Although we were aware that the chance of seeing a leppard here was lower. It was a perfect day and the team did everything possible to bring us closer to nature, animals and culture. Thank you!

Yala Safari One of the best places to experience real safari. Ethical professional friendly service. I have travelled immense times to YALA but to tell tell the truth i have not met anyone like ranger mark who is very capable of of handling situations and extremely knowledgeable and expert of his territory. So I would really recommend the safari with ranger mark and the stay in camp leopard. Hoping to go for another drive within next month Thanks for everythingπŸ™πŸ™ All the best guys πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Ideal place to self quarantine! With all the covid madness in the recent days we still went ahead with the booking we made for the weekend of 17th and 18th October, probably the best decision! The camp is in on the border of the buffer zone and the perfect setting for the jungle feeling. We were Warmly welcomed by the team compeising of Marlon and prasad and of course the camp manager booboo the cutest and friendly alsation there is. Camp was for ourselves and we never felt out of place. Everything was the way it was advertised and after lunch went on an early game ride. Again due to the fact everyone was bonkers over covid the park was just for ourselves which is a very rare occurance. Marlon was a fantastic ranger, highly knowledgeable with plant and animal behaviour and anything to do with the surrounding areas. He never related in trying to spot a bird or an animal and the icing on the cake was at the last moment when he spotted the leopard. Just what we were looking for and a bonus was spotting another one within the next 5 Mts. Highly recommended if you want to get away and avoid these crowded hotels where you are more likely to contact the virus. A great place to relax, be with nature, friendly and efficient staff and feel the real jungle vibe I encourage all sri lankans who care about helping local tourists spots such as this and help them by visiting and sustaining the business in these difficult times

Super recommended! After curfew we went a group of friends for a farewell and we were completely right choosing the place. They took all the safety measures needed. Both location and staff were fantastic. Delicious food and amazing safari thanks to the guides who made it interesting and unforgettable. Mark and Marlon were very knowledgeable safari guides. We will always have a very good memory of having shared a weekend with our friends at Camp Leopard. We will repeat when our family be able to come to visit us!!!!

Yala National park ... Being a hiking and outdoor enthusiast I have been to the Yala National park a few times before, but never had such an excellent experience as I did with Camp Leopard! Both Marc and Marlon are extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and flora in the park. The bush knowledge of Marlon helped the team track down two Leopards on our excursions, which was an exciting experience, among all other wonderful wildlife we spotted. If you are looking for a truly wild experience (with a pool and large buffet as a bonus πŸ˜„) then this is the place to go! All in all it was a great experience, and the team had also captured a video of our wild holiday, which was a really special gesture.

Excellent safari experience Mark and Marlon were very knowledgeable safari guides. The glamping tents were great and the food was good too. We saw many of the animals, including tusker elephants, crocodiles, deer, wild boar, wild water buffalo, mecaques and bird life. The only thing we didn't see was a leopard but we saw paw prints and the guides tried hard to find them for us but they proved too elusive. Would recommend to all looking for a comfortable safari experience 😊

Excellent Staff and Safaris We very much enjoyed the safaris and would strongly recommend Camp Leopard because of how good Marlon, our guide, was. Very enthusiastic, knowledgeable, perfect English etc. Accommodation a little basic, but an effort has been made to make the camp as nice as possible and it was fine for a couple of nights. We also enjoyed the food (cooked by women from the local village) and all the staff at the camp (and our driver) were also great.

Most Incredible Safari Experience Imaginable! Where to even start. WOW! This place is just incredible. Don't think we've ever had better service anywhere in our travels. The entire staff at Camp Leopard is so friendly. They always greet you with a big smile, they can make every accommodation you need (we're vegetarian and they had no problem making delicious vegetarian meals for us). Speaking of food.... it's amazing! Everything is handmade from scratch in traditional Sri Lankan style. Something new and delicious every day. Also, every lunch and dinner comes with a little dessert, we loved that! Definitely ask to have some kurd and treacle! The tents have AC and hot showers, a true glamping experience. The camp is pretty much right on the border with the national park, so don't be surprised to find some monkeys jumping around on top of your tent. What really sets camp leopard apart is the safari experience. Camp Leopard uses a different entrance than most other tours. This means there are fewer jeeps for you to contend with and less traffic to spook the animals. On your game drives, you'll be accompanied by Marlon, their resident naturalist. Something worth noting is that most companies don't have a naturalist at all, just a driver. You're on your own for trying to spot wildlife. Marlon is a wealth of knowledge on all the wildlife in the park and is a pro at spotting them out. We saw all kinds of interesting wildlife including Elephants, crocodiles, wild boar, deer, jackals, tons of birds and even a glimpse of a leopard! Another thing we loved is the efforts Camp Leopard was making to operate sustainably. They use hardly any plastic: they provide clean drinking water in the rooms and common area, each tent has its own jars of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, and they have the goal of being plastic-free by the end of this year. Also, all the structures are semi-permanent and very little concrete is used. At the end of your stay, each guest has the option to plant a tree on the property. They also do a lot of outreach in the community to help educate future generations of naturalists! All said this was one of the best travel experiences we've ever had! If you're thinking about doing a safari in Yala, we can't recommend Camp Leopard enough!

Mihintale Wildlife Sanctuary - Quite possibly the first wildlife sanctuary ever declared in the world during the 3rd Century BC on a Poson (June) Full Moon 🌝 Poya Day!
.
The ruling King Devanampiyatissa happened to be on deer hunting 🦌🏹when he encountered the enlightened monks, who then preached the Buddhist doctrine to King Devanampiyatissa.☸️
.
Mihintale was legally gazetted as a Wildlife sanctuary in 1938. 

Nevertheless, according to the chronicles of Mahawansa and some stone inscriptions found in the area; once King Devanampiyatissa understood the Buddhist philosophy, he realized all animals have the right to live freely in their habitat. 
.
Hence, he banned hunting animals in the area of Mihintale and Mahamewuna gardens in Anuradhapura by making it the world's first wildlife sanctuary.

Udawalawe #nationalpark, only 75 mins drive from the camp is possibly the best place to see #wildelephants in such numbers in the southern region.

#Udawalwe also falls under multiple climate zones throughout the park, changing the vegetation and habitats completely different in the northern parts in comparison to the mostly visited grassland routes around the southern main gate and the reservoir. 

Apart from 100s of elephants, Udawalawe is one of the best possible places to see #junglecats on #safaris and even topping off with an occasional #leopard sighting.

About 45mins drive from @campleopardyala is one of the bio diversity richest places in Sri Lanka specially with avian fauna πŸ¦πŸ¦…πŸ¦†πŸ“ and home for the largest reptiles living on earth, the salt water crocodiles 🐊.
.
First wetland in Sri Lanka to be declared as a #Ramsar site and the 4th to be a #UNESCO #BioSphere in the island. 
.
Over 200 different species of birds can be found in the park and the best times to visit would be the winter months as this attracts many migratory wading birds to the lagoons and salterns inside the park making it one of the top hotspots for bird watching.

Are those Blue Birds Really Blue? NO!

Would you believe almost no animals on earth has Blue pigmentation and The Blue we see on them is rather an optical illusion? (Well except for one particular butterfly species - read about it on go.campleopard.com/true-blue)
.
Yes including your favorite king fishers and peacocks
.
Birds have tiny microscopic structures on their feathers that the light goes thru a series of reflections in which only the blue color wavelength is escaped while the other wavelengths are canceled out. 
.
Think of the scenarios of how a prism would split the natural light into different wavelengths to separate and the process of a noise cancellation headphone.

How to avoid trouble with Wildlife on the Roadside when you Travel in Sri Lanka.
.
.
Following up the incident of elephant attacking a car with 2 tourists driving on the main road yesterday, while another group of social media accounts putting videos of wild elephants being fed and approached on foot, we thought of putting together few travel tips on the subject.
.
.
Some of main roads in Sri Lanka run thru Protected or Unprotected Areas rich in Wildlife. Therefore;
.
.
πŸ‘‰Please DO NOT approach them on foot/scooters/tuks or by your vehicle πŸ›΅πŸ›ΊπŸšΆ
.
πŸ‘‰Avoid driving thru such roads at night 🌌 and in smaller vehicles. 
.
πŸ‘‰If any animals are crossing the road or trying to cross the road give them enough space/distance and let them pass first! πŸ˜πŸ†πŸ¦š
.
πŸ‘‰DO NOT Speed/Stop next to them/Throw food or anything else at them πŸš«πŸš—πŸŒπŸπŸ§¨
.
πŸ‘‰DO NOT Keep open food that gives away smell to attract them πŸ‰πŸŒπŸ½
.
πŸ‘‰YOU DO NOT NEED TO FEED ROADSIDE ROUGH ELEPHANTS TO GET A 'PASS' FROM THEM! 
You can simply just drive thru without stopping for them, and they will make way for you. πŸ˜πŸš«πŸ‰
.
πŸ‘‰If you are in a Scooter/Tuk/Bicycle it's always recommended to pass the wild animals shadowing a bigger vehicle that passed by. πŸ›ΊπŸ›΅πŸš² ➑️πŸ‘₯🚚
.
‼️NOTE:
Professional Safari Vehicles and Operators approaching animals (within their comfort zone ofcourse) do not carry open food that attract such animals and ALWAYS APPROACH ONLY based on the body language of such animals (inside national parks as well as on the Roadside) assessed by professional and Experienced Drivers, Rangers and Trackers ensuring neither animals nor guests are in harm's way by such approach.
