Nestled amid forest and lake bordering the national park and close to the quieter Katagamuwa gate, Leopard Trails tented camp allows guests to experience the wilderness in comfortable air conditioned deluxe tents or in larger suites with plunge pools. Expert naturalists lead shared game drives, nature walks, give an introduction to stargazing, and also host guests for drinks around the campfire, before dining by candlelight!

An approximate 4 hours’ drive from the Colombo city and the Bandaranaike International Airport, Leopard Trails is located in the perfect location which is easily accessible from any point even from the Mattala Rajapakse International Airport just being 1 hr away from the camp.

The spacious tents are all air conditioned with private bathroom facilities and seating area for each tent. Besides safari drives, guests can enjoy games and activities arranged by the property or relax in the lounge area with a cocktail or fine wine from the fully stocked bar.

We have two types of tents at Leopard Trails Yala camp: The Leopard Trails Suites and Deluxe Tents.

Company info

Established in 2012, Leopard Trails Bespoke Tented Safaris offers a guided tented camping experience bordering Sri Lanka's national parks.

Property info

We believe that any safari experience is greatly enhanced by high quality guiding. The Game Rangers at Leopard Trails are employed for their knowledge of Sri Lanka’s jungles and their ability to communicate with people from all over the world. These passionate and qualified individuals are fascinating company, and are the ideal ambassadors to teach you the seemingly invisible language of the bush. Apart from conducting informative game drives, the ranger also acts as a host within camp, discreetly reading the needs of our guests whilst at the same time sharing his stories, knowledge and passion of the wild. We believe that our game rangers play a massive role in enhancing the guest experience at Leopard Trails.
