Highly recommend Ceylon wild safaris for a great glamping experience!They were not only great hosts they were very knowledgeable and expert trackers too. We had the privilege to learn and experience an unforgettable opportunity with Aaron, Arshaad, Indika, Dinal and the rest of their team. After along time I felt that I got the best customer service experience. We absolutely loved our stay at Ceylon Wild Safaris and it’s the best in yala without a doubt!!

After more than a decade, to experience the best that Yala has to offer - staying at Ceylon Wild Safaris - was a unforgettable experience. The positive serenity and friendliness of the CWS Team in this extremely comfortable private camp is a rare luxury. CWS caters to the discerning traveller who wishes to patiently experience the treasures of Yala. You sleep on extremely comfortable bedding in one of its 6 large Air Conditioned and well lit tented rooms with fully equipped en- suite bathroom and plunge pool. Delicious light local meals are served up by Chef Siri in the large open air dining space. Passionate and skilled CWS staff take guests on leisurely safari in well sprung vehicles - blankets are provided to protect you from the early morning chill. During my stay I noted the kind attention given to the child guests - a relief for holidaying parents. I happily look forward to returning to enjoy the hospitality of the CWS family.

My first ever stay with Ceylon Wild Safaris and I can definitely say not the last! We stayed 2 nights from the 21st - 23rd of November 2020. This was hands down the best experience we have had and Ceylon Wild Safaris is our #1 choice to stay when visiting Yala. My main objectives were met; 1) See leopards and enjoy some off roading experience. Indika accompanied us to the park and let me tell you he is a leopard magnet! We had about 11 leopard sightings in just 2 days and they were some memorable ones. His knowledge about the animal behaviour and habits were interesting and a learning experience to us. From termite hills to Tarantulas (Yikes!!!! My nightmares come to life) and about why leopard poo is furry (see image). Yup I was fascinated with Poo! 😁 Loved the bumpy rides we took and i saw areas of Yala i have not been to in the past. 2) Clean and comfy place to sleep. Loved the tent rooms. So spacious and clean. Loved the outdoor bathroom. Very comfy bed! There is a small plunge pool but we were eternally inside the park did not have time to enjoy it. Next time for sure. 3) GREAT FOOD! YUMMY FOOD! ❀ Every meal was amazing!!! The local dishes were just πŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎ. Was stuffed after every meal but so worth it. Kudos to chef Siri! 4) A 5 STAR SERVICE From start to finish we were well looked after. From the park visits to our meals Indika and his team at CWS took the trouble to make our trip a memorable one! Thank you so much guys! Highly recomend CWS to anyone hoping for a memorable and learning experience about the amazing wildlife in Sri Lanka.

Ceylon wild safari - counting days to come back. lol I’m still reminiscing the stay at Ceylon wild safari the wonderful camp site in yala . I got to know about this place through a friend who knows about hotels and places like this in and out . From the time I entered the camp I just fell in love with it . Super cozy tents with lovely bathroom as well as a nice little outdoor jacuzzi. We did four safaris for the two days we stayed with the CWS owners it self . And we had 7 leopard sightings and soo many other animal sightings too . The experience Indika Nettigama and Arshad has on wild life is mesmerizing. We loved every second we spent at the park as well the the camp site. And I must talk about the food . Every time I decide I should not eat a lot today I fail as soon as I see the spread . Every meal we had was soo Delicious . And we also had an amazing bbq night the under the starry skies which was a beautiful addition to our already out of the world experience. The staff was really friendly and super helpful and courteous.already planned another trip πŸ’—
