Sri Lanka wouldn’t be our best holidays ever without Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safari visit. We are a family of four (two boys 5 and 7) and we are very passionate about nature. So when we were planning our trip to Sri Lanka, safari was on the top of the list!!! Leopard safari in Yala park was our last safari in... More

Cecile, Noel and Staff ensured that our family had a fantastic 4 night safari experience. Not only did we see leopards, elephants and a variety of animals due to the expertise of the guides, the land cruisers were nice and quiet, the private flush toilets provided that certain measure of comfort. And then there was the food...never would have believed... More

We wanted to make this trip for quite some time already. What a wonderful experience ! We arrived at the Camp and were welcomed with cool scented towels - and we did not have to wait for the towels - the staff with the towels was already waiting for us. How refreshing. And coming from every game drive - the... More

We are back home but still dreaming about our amazing experience at the camp. We are forever thankful to Noel, Sajith and Dhanu for all that they did to make us and our young children comfortable. Even though our stay was dampened with my son and husband being ill, it was still an unforgettable time. I will never forget standing... More

We had a great two day stay with Leopard Safaris in December 2015 and would recommend them. This was our little treat on our Sri Lanka trip as it is certainly not cheap but it was very enjoyable. We had four fun drives, with knowledgeable drivers pointing out lots of birds and animals. It was a shame that it rained... More

We highly recommend to stay at the Leopard Safaris camp. Here you experience a special atmosphere. The tents are very comfortable and situated into the wild with very low ecological impact. What's most important and noteworthy is that everything you might need is already in place for you (flash light, ear plugs, drinkable water to brush teeth, a safe, clean... More

Noel and Cecile deliver a fantastic experience in every way - we can't recommend it enough. There's a lot more to Sri Lanka than beaches, coconuts and tea (though there's nothing wrong with those) and a safari is a great way to get introduced to the wildlife, the forest and some of the people who live here. The camp was... More

Our two night stay was an oasis of excellence, perfect service and impeccable food during our three week trip to Sri Lanka where, despite the country's amazing scenery, service and general organisation were generally chaotic and hit and miss. The same could not be said for leopard safari - everything was perfect. Special mention to our driver and guide Marlon... More
