The Yala Safari Game Lodge is definitely the place to go to fully immerse yourself in the safari experience. It manages to simultaneous combine the experience of being in a comfortable and luxurious resort with the inescapable sense of being right in the heart of the wild; the lodges are well provisioned with TV, ammenities and air-conditioning, yet spaced out...

If you're traveling to Sri Lanka this is a must do! It actually feels like you're in the middle of africa! It's beautiful! The accomodation is incredible, everything is above the ground as the wildlife roams free around the park. At night you have to be escorted to your room as elephants come and go as they please. You have... More

Stayed 2 nights here with my family while we explored Yala. Hotel was good and the location was beautiful - sunsets were a sight to behold!. No complaints and the trip to the park was amazing - saw everything there was to see including both leopard and bear! Would definitely stay here again

This hotel is perfect for enjoying Yala National Park, where we were lucky enough to see a leopard. It's location is stunning, on the edge of the large lake where flora and fauna are prolific. Excellent food, especially the lobster (lunch menu). Staff friendly, smiling & helpful.

We stayed at the Yala Wild and had 3 safaris. It is important to get a good driver. We changed after 2 trips with no leopards. The final trip we were rewarded with 2 leopards. Also plenty of elephants, water buffalo and smaller animals. This place is a must for anyone interested in wildlife.

I stayed 2 nights arrived from the beautiful Lavanga at hikkaduwa to here. It was very very hot and humid but had a nice curry lunch . The hotel was a little run down but nice staff made my stay pleasurable. They organize the jeeps for safari and was very helpful.

Arrived at lunchtime, sticky & hot after a five hour drive. Pool looked incredibly enticing, but only had time for quick lunch before our afternoon safari at Yala. Opted for the lunch buffet which was good, in particular the Sri Lankan curry. There was lots of choice & if you were hungry & took full advantage of all on offer... More

We had a great time at Yala Safari Game Lodge. We went on Safari which was really exciting and then stayed the night at the lodge. Each room is a separate little house. You can sit on your porch at night and watch the wild life. The pool is really nice. The food in the dining room there was Okay.... More

Well this place was a bit different from your average hotel in Sri Lanka. Very much big game Africa themed to the long drive in, the 'game lodge' main building with the rooftop scenic viewing, the beautifully presented detached ‘huts’ for sleeping dotted about the enclosure, the odd chance of running into a cow or two in the night!
