This is a long over due report, but I promised myself I would write this as we had the most amazing time here.
It was part of our honeymoon in Sri Lanka and we had chosen to do one night at the campsite - in hind site I would recommend 2 nights if possible. After being collected from the meeting point, we were excited to see our campsite and were not disappointed. The tents are really comfortable, clean, well equipped, have outdoor showers and flushing toilets, perfect!! We went out on a dusk and a dawn Safari and were optimistic as to what we would see - this brings me to the most important part of our review, our guide/ leader Aaron. Aaron was awesome, I believe if it wasn't for his knowledge, expertise and patience, we would not have seen half the animals & birds that we did. Over the 2 trips out, we saw 3 leopards, this is something we will never ever forgot and felt so lucky.
Because of our safari experience, we were so happy to have chosen Leopard Trails, especially after seeing some of the other jeeps in the park and the way they drive. Our guys were safe and definitely more experienced. Food was really tasty, plentiful & service was great! They even arranged a special evening meal for us under the stars as a honeymoon treat, so thoughtful and yet again, further enhanced our experience. We even heard the elephants moving around at nighttime, so exciting!
These guys are definitely the best, it's clear to see and we would highly recommended this experience, well worth the treat!
