We had a wonderful time at Kulu Safaris recently, and the staff including Ramini our host and naturalist made sure we did not lack for anything. Food and drink, service, the family tent, the wildlife, the park's tracker, Yala NP in itself despite the severe drought and obviously (too) high visitor numbers

In July we were a group of seven people mixed in age from 25 to nearly 60 who stayed at Kulu Safaris for one night. Now, one month later, it stands out as the absolute highlight from our three weeks in Sri Lanka. Although we only had one night, we had plenty of time to make two safari trips. With... More

We spent 2 nights at Kulu Safari camp in Yala and had an amazing time. Couldn't have asked for better service, the food was phenomenal and Kulu's own safari jeeps were comfortable, quiet and well equipped! The fluid operations were complimented by the warm hospitality which made our two night stay very special. What we loved: - The attention to... More

I really enjoyed my two day Yala National Park safari with Kulu Safaris. The staff were so hospitable and so friendly. Even better you have the benefit of a naturalist who travels with you and who explains and names all the wildlife for you. The tents are very roomy and comfy and provide for all your needs.

We recently visited Sri Lanka, and had pre-booked 3 nights staying with Kulu Safaris in Yala National Park. The Accommodation was great, huge tents with wooden decking, and really comfy chairs. The tent had ample plugs for charging batteries but the view was disappointing - overlooking a field of cows. The service was a bit slow, and the beer and... More

Dear Paula, Many thank for the constructive and detailed review. Kulu Safaris aspire to meet all our clients expectations and give each client a special unique experience. We do agree that Yala National Park is under great demand. However, our campsite being located on the Katagamuwa side of the park has given our clients the advantage of enjoying the park... More

We spent two nights at Kulu and wished we could have stayed longer. It's absolutely perfect. The tents are luxurious, with hot water showers! The food is fabulous and I loved the different areas of the camp that are set up for dining, especially as they are done to blend in with the natural surrounds. A barbecue under the canopy... More
