Leopard Safaris by KK Collection is minutes from the Wilpattu game park entrance, in the buffer zone. This campsite offers accommodation in mobile tents unlike its sister property in Yala.
Wilpattu National Park is an excellent place to spot the mysterious sloth bear who roams around the jungle trying to appease his craving for Palu and Weera, which are found in abundance in the park. The park is also gaining popularity for good leopard sightings. Apart from them, you can also see elephants, a variety of birdlife and deer in large numbers.
The campsite operates on an ‘all-inclusive’ basis that covers: accommodation; all meals and snacks; all beverages and drinks and two game drives for one night’s stay. If guests are interested in going on a private game drive accompanied with a naturalist an additional supplement is applicable.
Accommodation is offered in 3 doubles and a family tent that can accommodate up to 4 people. The tents are well ventilated with sizeable windows right around and even on the roof and are located away from each other to provide privacy. Each tent consists of a sleeping area that opens on to a small sit-out with camp chairs. There is also a side table, shelf, camp chair, side-stool, mirror, torch and umbrella. The toilet, shower and wash basin are detached, located just outside in two separate tents. The w/c is a bio-degradable flushing toilet and the shower consists of a separate changing area. The water for the shower is manually filled each day: hot water is provided for the shower upon request.
The team at the campsite prepare delicious Sri Lankan meals, snacks and BBQs with fresh village vegetables and meats. For game safaris, they use customized Toyota Land Cruisers which can handle every kind of terrain, provide an excellent view, and are specially fitted with camera support points for photographers. An experienced wildlife specialist will accompany guests on the jeep safaris, treks and other activities.
