we visited Big game Camp at Wilpattu on oct this year (12th oct 2013). We spent only a day there but it was really memorable.
The staff at the camp is really good. The service was excellent.
in the morning they took us for a short walk to do some bird watching.
We got a great breakfast after that and an excellent lunch in the middle of the forest.. but still very lavishly arranged.
The rooms are pretty comfortable although i found the night very hot! no ventilation - so could not sleep but my family slept like logs!
the dinner too was arranged very well with a campfire etc.... certainly not what we'd expect in the wilderness.
the wilpattu national park is wonderful and we got to see leopards very closely.
Actually the whole Sri lanka surpassed our expectations.
would very much recommend people to visit... the food is too good and the service unexpectedly good.
