We visited Leopard Trails in Wilpattu two weeks ago and I must say it is the perfect place to experience the wilderness starting from our guide Malmi Jayaweera who made sure our stay at wilpattu was insightful and comfortable. The tents were super comfy and clean with an urban touch to it. We had our game ride (safari) after a beautiful lunch served at the camp, where we got to see the Bear (Sloth bear) in the National park, the only kind to be found in Sri Lanka, along with many other animals where we were informed about their habitats and preferences. Dinner was served at a beautiful lamp lit area in the camp amidst the sounds of the frogs, crickets etc giving you the perfect experience in the wild here at Leopard Trails. Malmi took us on a nature walk during the early hours along the village where we got to see the life of the villagers and how the produce for the camp is sometimes bought from the villagers maintaining the bond and friendship that is not seen often in many places, leading us to beautiful lake with a scenic view, followed by a Srilankan and continental breakfast served by the Chef and his team at the camp. Thanking Malmi and his team at Leapord Trails Wilpattu not forgetting Aravinda for making our stay one of the best glamping experiences to look for. The sincerity and genuineness towards serving their clients the best they got to offer, is something which I saw at Leapord Trails making me want to visit Yala within the next couple of months.

The Safari Jeep facility we received was ridiculous. For a whole day safari(8.30am to 6pm), we got a jeep that ran out of fuel while we were inside the park. We had to find our own ways to explore the park because the driver we got was very incorporative. From the beginning he was negative and unfriendly. He made us feel fed up of our safari. Dear Management, please take a serious note of the tents. (We occupied 3 out of the total 5 tents there). All of those need to be repaired seriously as there are enough places for the insects to creep in. During our stay, there were so many rats, frogs and even a scorpion whom the staff had to take away in the 3 tents we were in. A Wifi access area (at least in the lobby) and a little bit of lights during the night would have been better. However, despite all the issues we came across, a special thanks should be given to Mr. Malmi Jayaweera and his team for the amazing service given to us during our stay (4nights). We highly appreciate it. The food was delicious with a variety (They gave options for Vegetarians and non vegetarians very well). Thank you once again!

Dear Madara, Firstly thank you for choosing Leopard Trails and for your feedback. All client feedback is very important to us and taken very seriously. We would like to sincerely apologize for the vehicle related issues you experienced during your full day safari along with your complaint on the driver. Following your feedback on the tents we have checked and resealed any entry points into the tent which is often the utility entry points and/or gaps under doors. Tents have also undergone their biannual refurbishments. Thank you for your positive feedback on Malmi and the other staff and their service and demeanor. This is very much appreciated and something we strive to do. We hope you will be back sometime to our Yala property where we hope to give you the best of everything we offer and change your mind on the total experience we provide! Kind Regards, Leopard Trails management.

We were a Group of 4 stayed in LT willpattu for 2 nights. Dinal and Malmi was excellent. They took care of us like family, very professional. Food was exceptional kudos to the chef and team. All the staff members were very attentive. Tents are spacious and well maintained. Expect some geckos and small bugs around the tents coz you're close to jungle. We did 2 game drives morning and evening. Though we saw everything the famous willpattu leopard eluded us. Dinal and malmi took all possible routes but it was one of those days. If you wanna experience glamping near willpattu this is the place.

Our stay at leopard trails was a truly unique experience topped off with the rarest of leopard sightings in the park. We went into the park with an open mind and appreciated being able be around nature, so the sightings came as a welcome bonus. Malmi, the leopard trails naturalist was so knowledgeable and did such a stellar job of making sure every detail was looked into. The leopard trails staff was extremely hospitable, professional and friendly. Highly recommended for a unique and personalized experience like no other.

The best place to stay at Wilpattu for an amazing glamping experience. Our 2 night stay at Leopard trails-Wilpatthu amidst the covid situation rising in the country was really unforgettable. From the day we booked until we left the place, we both were impressed by the friendliness and hospitality of all the staff there. Though we were the only people staying there for those 2 nights as western part of the country was under curfew due to covid, Mr. Wedage, Mr. Pilapitiya and the crew made sure that we are fully satisfied on our stay. Food was exceptional and was having a lot of variety as well. We had a BBQ night on first day and experienced the most beautiful candle lit dinner outdoors i had on the next day. The glamping area was really beautiful and the ambience was great especially in night with camping lanterns. You can experience a luxurious camping experience here for sure and you will be never disappointed about this. Our ranger was really friendly and he had a great knowledge on wild life. The staff is really friendly, professional and supportive. This closeness of staff was never experiencedby us at any other lodge. Can't recommend it enough for nature lovers to experience an unforgettable glamping.
