I heard about Camp Leopard from a recommended post and upon reading the reviews, was quick to book an experience with them! And it absolutely went above and beyond the high expectations we had 😊 Even before arriving, we had constant updates and check-ins with the team to ensure a smooth arrival! We were collected, greeted with a fantastic Sri Lankan lunch and set forth to do our first safari. The chef was experienced and the food so tasty, Ruwan the camp lead was attentive and thoughtful, Nicky was on hand for support and I couldn’t speak highly enough of Chathu and Layya were knwowldgable, responsive safari guides who was able to show us more than 42 animals! Highly recommend and will be back!

We really enjoyed our time at Leopard camp and especially loved the whole team. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this great experience and will definitely recommend you to others. Chatu was our perfect safari guide. Unbelievable what knowledge she has about nature, especially the birds. And Ruan and his team felt like our new family in Sri Lanka. So I hope we'll come back!

Wow! What a fantastic three days at Camp Leopard Yala. Camp Leopard came highly recommended to us and did not disappoint. Ruwan and the team were so welcoming, thoughtful, and attentive. With just three guest groups at a time, we were thouroghly spoilt. Gorgeous glamping tents, incredible, fresh, full of flavour, beautifully presented cuisine which catered to all diets. Loved our bonfire night! We went on two wonderful animal packed safari's, a morning and an afternoon, as well as two guided trail walks. What an experience! Our ranger Shermal was so knowledgeable and friendly, a great asset to the team. My final compliment, they are eco-friendly. I will be back! Nicola

A great big thank you to Marc and the team for providing a wonderful and knowledgeable full-day safari experience, topped off with a comfortable and relaxing stay at the Camp. Big shout out to Chathu for her expertise and friendly nature. Also a big thanks to our exceptional safari driver Lyya being so considerate of the bumpy tracks for the pregnant passenger on board! The glamping tents were clean, comfortable and cosy. We were treated to delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner and of course tea/coffee throughout the whole trip. Looking forward to returning again soon.

We were really impressed with what Mark has created at Camp Leopard. The glamping tents did not disappoint and the food and hospitality from the entire team was brilliant. We went on a PM and AM safari with Mark and he was really knowledgeable and created a very enjoyable 24hour experience.

An amazing way to explore Yala National Park with glamping experience! The camp is a luxurious camping experience with the most attentive team looking after you- Ossie, Chathu and Nicky especially. The food is delicious and the dining experience is amazing. We did three safaris with Chathu who is an amazing knowledgeable guide. We had great fun! Would highly recommend Camp Leopard if you’re exploring Yala National Park!

This was an exceptional tour in my life and one of a kind safari. We camped in the middle of Kumana National Park, near Kumbukkan Oya for 3 nights. The nearest civilization was more than 20km away. Mobile phones were dead. It was full of excitement, nature, beauty, fear and joy. We encounter wild creatures including few leopards. The camp leopard team was very dedicated to make the tour a success. Chathu was amazing. Her knowledge and enthusiasm was outstanding. The food was delicious. Team is doing a marvelous job. I would like to thank Marc for giving me this opportunity. No one should hesitate to book this safari. This was the best of the best. Worth every penny.

Our trip won’t be the same without her. Chathu!!! she is an amazing young lady, an environmental scientist, a wildlife expert, smart and extremely friendly. She engaged my children closely with her knowledge. This place, Camp Leopard is absolutely amazing. Set in an authentic jungle experience, build with love in a sustainability approach, easy access to Yala National Park and BOO BOO ..you are always in our heart. Meals provided were exactly what I wanted. Presented in a traditional Sri Lanka style, everyday is delicious. Marc never fails to feed what I want. The whole team are wonderful, they were naturally friendly and helpful. This trip is truly unforgettable, we found what we are looking for! Thank you Marc!
