A fabulous tented camp serviced by a great team who looked after us so well for 3 nights. Tents were really comfortable and the food delicious. A special mention to our guide Manju who with his driver gave us many memorable moments in Wilpattu National Park.
From the moment you arrive at Leopard Trails, you are transported to another world. A natural world of beauty, combined with super luxury "camping" and amazing service. I literally cannot fault a single thing - and reading other reviews and the guest book, seems nobody else could find a fault either! Worth the money. I know, it is more than other nearby Wilpattu lodges. But they aren't anywhere near the level of LT. The camping resort and tents are world class. Air conditioned tents with luxurious beds, your own fully stocked bar, and a wash room including a shower that looks out into the wild. The communal areas are a treat to explore. You'll have a great time just listening to the birds or watching the private lake.. The food is sublime. Local Sri Lankan fare with a range of dynamic and innovative dishes. The BBQed meat was out of this world, cooked on coconut coals. The breakfasts were fantastic. And the picnics while exporting Wilpattu were also top notch. The kids loved it, and when they found something too peppery, the crew would appear with alternatives. Malmi was our guide, and what a treat. He is extremely knowledgeable and fully trained in tour guiding and the natural world. He could answer any questions He explained the cycle of the jungle to.our 3 and 6 year old Junior Rangers so well. It helped that we spotted all the major animals like the leopard, Sloth bear, samber deer, etc. But it's not just that, he was entertaining and knowledgeable. Five stars. Totally unforgettable experience. I hope to be back.…
This place is set in a picturesque and peaceful landscape, abundant with wildlife. The suite tents are very comfortable and clean. The attention to detail is excellent. The staff were extremely attentive and made sure we wanted for nothing. The food was customized to our dietary requirements (vegan, gluten free) and was delicious. Manju, our friend and guide, is extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and local area, which enriched the experience. He made sure our programme was engaging, especially for the children.
Leopard Trails Wilpattu is place with great tranquility blending the natural environment with a touch of super luxury. The tented suites were absolutely amazing with a touch of exclusive furniture pieces, painting and decor. The service provided by the staff is extremely classy and the food is awesome with some best delicious dishes. Manjula the team leader is very knowledgeable about the jungle and the leopard whereabouts. Enjoyed every moment and recommend to anyone who wants a world class stay
Full marks across the board. The lodge itself is magnificent, the entire on site team excellent and I got to see a really good selection of wildlife. I was in suite 1 which is their top room, well worth the extra if you want all the bells and whistles. It was easy to forget I was in a tent and not a deluxe hotel room at times, the finish is so good. The verandah at the front extremely peaceful. The food was fantastic, too much of it is my only criticism . My guide Malmi was superb, great company and a fountain of knowledge.
Leopard Trails was our introduction to Sri Lanka, and our stay could not have been better. Our tent was the definition of luxury camping: beautiful lodging where we could still hear all of nature surrounding us. The team at Leopard Trails went out of their way to make us feel special. The chef provided extravagant (and delicious!) meals, introducing us to amazing Sri Lankan cuisine. He even made a homemade cake when he found out it was our honeymoon. Manju, the naturalist at Leopard Trails, was a wonderful host and guide. He found out what we wanted to see on our game drives, and prioritized searching for these experiences for us. While Yala may be the larger tourist draw, I would highly recommend visiting Wilpattu, and enjoying a stay with Leopard Trails for a once in a lifetime experience.…
We had a wonderful time at the leopard trails. To start with,, organising and booking our visit made easy and pleasant with the help of Kulsum. We were welcomed by Manjula and he went out of his way to make our stay a comfortable and a memorable one. Our driver was full of praise for Manjula for looking into his needs,We had the use of the luxury suites which were extremely well furnished and comfortable.Manjula arranged to have a breakfast break on our morning safari outing. Manjula was so useful in guiding throughout our safari visit.Jeep driver was very experienced and was quick to take us to see rare sightings of leopards.birds and crocs etc.Catering was excellent with a barbecue served under starlight.They were very sympathetic and was able to cater to some of our special needs. Can recommend this to everybody.…
We stayed at this amazing place last week and were blown away! Our guide Malmi was the absolute highlight of our trip! We learned so much from him, about animals but also about Sri Lanka. Overall service is fantastic, dinners under a million stars are unforgettable. The tent is very comfortable and beautiful, like a 5* hotel. We hope to go back soon!!
Visiting Leopard trails and indeed all of Sri Lanka has proven to be a safe and rewarding experience as always despite the UK governments essential travel only advice. We all had a great time, hosted by the wonderful Malmi, with the rest of the friendly team. The accommodation is unlike any tent I’ve ever stayed in (luxury suite) with plenty of room for a family of four. The food was great with 3 multicourse meals a day. Willpattu national park is an amazing sight in itself, add in the sightings of a leopard, sloth bear and elephant to the usual array of tropical wildlife and a great time was had by all. Thank you very much guys. Mike - UK
