What an experience. We were only there for one night but we saw two leopards, Elephants, lots of deer, native birds and a crocodile. The guide was really friendly and very informative. He would always ask if we needed help. The tents are air conditioned and luxourious. A candelit dinner is eaten under stars. Although it was pricey it was...

Very friendly and helpful camp, well placed to visit Yala NP - away from the busy towns and resorts. Staff were really good, and lots of food. Tents authentic. Good quality jeeps for the game drives, and a naturalist accompanies you which I think make the drives so much better. Only one comment, bit of feedback, the food and dining...

Bordering the less crowded side of Yala park the experienced team at Kulu ensures probably the best chance to see the elusive leopards of Sri Lanka. With ideal safari vehicles and excellent guides they just know how to make a safari experience worthwhile. When you return to the tented safari the conveniences and service is simply 5 star. The luxury...

We had an incredible experience with Kulu Safaris. The campsite and tents were amazing. The rooms were quite large, had a nice bathroom and even came equipped with air-conditioning. Each meal was set-up at a different spot on the campsite and the food was delicious. They were able to accommodate one of our travellers that prefers Western food. Manjula our...

We stayed here in March for 2 nights of our 10 night holiday and it made our holiday. The staff, food, accommodation and scenery were amazing. We saw a leopard, sloth bears, elephants and plenty of birds and buffalo the only shame was we didn't take a decent camera!
