Accommodation in the Wilpattu area is typically very simple, but Leopard Trails’ tents deliver a high level of comfort – set as a colonial-style safari lodge. Its lounge area has bucket seats, sofas and books to read. Even the entry-level Classic Mobile Tents have air-conditioning and private bathrooms with outdoor showers. Their Luxury Tents provide additional space and indoor showers.
Twice-daily jeep safaris are the main thing: you may also see elephant and water buffalo amid the scrub jungle and open grasslands. Consider also delving into Wilpattu’s history – about 500 years before the birth of Christ, it is believed that Prince Vijaya from India came here, as attested by many ruins. Seeing them requires a full day.
Anyone keen on adventure, wildlife and nature – this is your perfect combination. The guides and naturalists are the true heroes of Leopard Trails; they are incredibly passionate, knowledgeable and skilled at tracking.
