Awesome place in a very natural environment and very close to the wilpattu Nochiagama entrance. Friendly staff. Good food. Very good service. Stayed there for 2 nights and highly recommend this place. Thanks to Christoph, Darrel and staff. Special thanks to Hemantha who found my vehicle number plate which I lost in a water patch inside the parc.

From start to finish this was one of the most awesome experiences. My partner and I were treated like family and honored guests, all at the same time! WSC's hospitality was warm, inclusive and welcoming. The food was outstanding - simple yet delicious. We lacked for nothing. If we asked, we received! Thanks to Christo and the team at the camp for looking after us so well. Within the park, with vehicle and driver provided by WSC, our experiences were just fabulous aided by the knowledge and caring of our driver and our erstwhile spotter (Christo). We lucked out in this department too, adding 5 bear sightings, 1 leopard, 2 elephant, 5 barking deer, 5 Sambhur, including a mother and baby and a magnificent stag, plenty of dancing peacocks and as many amazing bird sightings as our eyes could absorb! what an amazing 3 days we had. Thanks WSC - although the words are not enough!!

We stayed for two nights at this lovely camp and from the easy check in by Christo / Darrel, great food, excellent driving/ tracking by Hemantha and stories regaled by Namal, we were well taken care of by everyone. The tents were large, comfortable and well-fitted to keep the insects out for a sound nights sleep after a long day in the jungle. The chef’s Sri Lankan and pork chops were on point 👌🏽A pleasant surprise was the good internet connectivity at the location, enabling work check-ins or the occasional zoom call where needed. Hoping to be back soon!

We had four families including kids ranging from 4+ to 11. They have 5 tents with attached bathrooms. The accommodation is good, clean and adequate. The tents are well covered from the elements with good connections for electricity. The only negative thing I can comment is that having one more fan during the day would be good. Nights were lovely and a little chilly. The rooms are quite spacious and can easily accommodate a good sized third bed if needed. The place is a mere 5-10mins from the park to very convenient. The food was awesome. They prepare amazing local cuisine as well as western style dishes. We even jokingly said that we want to take the chef with us when heading back. They will even pack some snacks for you very neatly for the morning safari trips and when we returned on each of these trips there was some lovely snacks with traditional Srilankan tea. The hospitality was great. The staff are very helpful and go out of the way to make the stay enjoyable. They provide the Jeep’s for the safari trips, at a cost, which are clean and comfortable. They also explain the various wildlife intricacies to the group when on the safari expeditions. All in all this is a great place coupled with fantastic food and great hospitality!

Thank you for staying with us. We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us. As you may know we are completely off the grid and supply power to the existing two fans with difficulty. We will look to improve our ability to generate power in the future. Look forward to welcoming you back to the camp

We have stayed for 2 nights in this lovely camp site and it will definitely be my best camping experience. This wonderful place is hidden inside the wilderness and closer to wildlife with only 4 tents. Tents are with really comfortable beds, hot water, fans and everything you need for your stay to be comfortable. I didn’t expect my camping experience to be this luxury but Safari Camp team made such an effort to make you feel special from the time they picked us up from park entrance to dropping us back there. Food was awesome, tasty and catered to our requirements and everyone there was very helpful, friendly and make and effort to keep us comfortable. We had really nice conversations about wildlife and shared experiences with Christopher who usually runs the Marketing activities but this time happen to be there covering up the role of camp manager. They have arranged safari tours according to our preferences and even the jeep drivers were really nice and attentive. To our surprise they have arranged our breakfast and lunch for us to have inside the park and that was not only food but fruits, tea/coffee and water as well. We had a wonderful time there and thanks Namal, Christo and Safari Camp team to make it a memorable one. Wish we had stayed longer than that but no regrets, definitely we will be back soon.
