The staff take such pride in providing an authentic local touch to this remarkably luxurious tented campsite in Yala that it makes you feel immediately at ease. The tents are set well apart from each other – are amazingly spacious with such gorgeous comforts, the food great, the fireside chats under the stars sharing a drink with other campers simply...

My wife and I had the good fortune of experiencing Yala over a period of a week staying at a variety of accommodation choices, including a 5 star luxury hotel, a budget hostel and of course with Wild Trails. And by far the most memorable experience was had with Wild Trails - Yala and their dedicated and knowledgeable team. From...

I loved my stay at Wild Trails! There's only 4 tents, so you really feel you are in the wild, and in deed you are. You're steps away from Yala and leopards are known to sun themselves on some of the rocks at camp. We dined under the stars and made our way back to our tents in the brush...

Oh my goodness, what a stay! In all honesty, we stayed 3 nights but 2 nights would have been perfect. First day on the safari we saw EVERYTHING including a sloth bear which we didn't expect. Came back to a candle lit dinner under the stars, only guests there so had the place to ourselves. Next day we did the...

I took this trip with my husband (we were on honeymoon) and wow! I can honestly say I felt like Jane to my husband’s Tarzan on this journey to Yala Park.

My son is very choosy when it comes to holidaying. He usually prefers the traditional hotel, AC rooms and a pool - basics that is expected at any five star hotel. So this time, when we as a family was looking for a holiday spot, a friend of mine recommended Wild Trails as we all felt that we needed a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A visit to Sri Lanka is never complete without a tour to a wild life sanctuary. Out of the many wild life parks it has to offer its visitors, Yala National Park situated in the deep south of the island is a must visit. Abundant with wildlife, where the majestic Sri Lankan elephant still reigns supreme and the ever elusive leopard, in its graceful elegance, tip toes its way to a hunt or to quench its thirst at its favourite water hole. Experience Sri Lanka’s big 5 from the corridors of their habitats and listen to the music of the birds on the canopy above, and hear the animal calls as you were among them, sharing their space. Yala is a park that has to be experienced from within. At Wild Trails we offer you an experience; a camping facility with luxurious accommodation, unforgettable hospitality and a sumptuous array of food and a tasteful collection of spirits and wines. ... more   less
