We've just returned from a wonderful 2 night trip in Yala national park. The kulu team led by Mark and Stuart looked after our two families superbly. Their service levels could not be faulted. We enjoyed having hot showers and flushing toilets, tents impeccably serviced every time we were out for a drive, comfy cosy beds and family tents that meant our 2 children (4 and 6 years) were in the same tent. The staff were incredibly children friendly from catering to food allergies, playing with them around the camp and toasted marshmallows on a camp fire. The food served was glorious and in unique surroundings (breakfast table laid out in the river was memorable) I had to check out their incredibly organised kitchen facilities just to see with my own eyes how they managed. It has certainly brought our own expectation levels of comfort and food served on our future camping trips.
The highlight of the trip was of course the game drives. We saw 9 leopards (2 mums with a cub each) with one literally walking right past our car, elephants (incl mum and calf), buffalo, bears, jackals, boar, eagles, mongoose, monkeys, deer.... An amazing variety of animals all explained very well by our knowledgable staff. The gin and tonics awaiting us after the drives was a special touch and always welcome!
I would not hesitate to recommend kulu safaris to anyone wanting to experience the wild side of Sri Lanka in style. Team kulu, thank you for the memories.
