Noel Rodrigo's Leopard Safaris - Sri Lanka

The luxury of Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safaris comes in the experience, rather than the quality of accommodation, which is deliberately simple.

Description & Location

Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safaris is totally authentic, under canvas safari experiences. You are up close and personal with nature – a wonderfully unique experience. You have a choice of two camps. The most established is at Yala National Park, located on the south-east corner of the island. Sri Lanka’s second largest park covering 979 sq.km. It is easily accessible following a tour of the Tea Country and/or Galle and the southern resorts.

The other camp is located at Wilpattu National Park. Less well known – it was actually off-limits to tourists during the civil war. It is the largest park covering a huge 1317 sq.km and is located just off the west coast north of Colombo. It can be easily combined with a tour of the Cultural Triangle.

Both parks are known for their abundance of wildlife, which usually includes elephants, leopards, sloth bears, monkeys and a huge variety of birds, with over 30 unique to Sri Lanka.



Accommodation

Both camps offer a selection of single, twin and triple tents. All are “South African“ tents. Simple, sturdy and have private shower and WC – although in keeping with the experience they are rudimentary and adequate. At Yala, you have a deluxe version which offers more comfort (see image below).

Facilities and Activities

All meals, soft drinks and evening spirits and beers
Two game drives daily

CHIC CHECK

The luxury of Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safaris comes in the experience, rather than the quality of accommodation, which is deliberately simple.

Remember this is the real thing, not a zoo, so you must adhere to the advice and guidance of the ranger guides.

We suggest a 2 day (one night) safari experience, although extra nights can be easily arranged. Wilpattu National Park can be easily visited from Ulagalla in the Cultural Triangle as a day tour as well.

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers. Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.

For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May - June level and about 50% more in Asia. For the Mediterranean & Canary IslandsCaribbeanArabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.

*For Sri Lanka and Far East we show a per-person, per-night hotel guide, excluding air fare, as arrangements tend to be individually tailored multi-centre itineraries.
