My wife and myself with another couple stayed for two nights with a full day in the safari park. Everything was perfect. Hansa was the perfect host with an amazing team backing him up. The food was absolutely wonderful and and an un-ending supply. The safari was so professionally done - even sending one of his team out at 4am to buy the entrance tickets so that we were first through the gates at 6am. So early we saw a leopard within the first 20 minutes. An excellent lunch and left the park at 6pm. Do not think of going anywhere else - this has to be the best place to stay !!!!

We stayed a couple of nights in this luxury camp with m'y husband. This was a wonderful experience which gave a little "adventure" taste to our trip!

The tent/room: The tent stands on a wooden platform that will keep you safe from wild animals. Despite the quite adventurous settings, the tent is comfortably furnished, with a large bed plus a spare bed and a bathroom with sink, shower and toilet. Also there is a mosquito net above the bed.
Hansa and his staff also provide a fan for the room, which we found most useful since the nights were quite hot.

The environment: that is the greatest part! There is a nice beach nearby, on which the staff organized a barbecue on the first evening. It was both magical and delicious!
In the camp you can live the experience to its fullest: during the first night, we actually woke up to the sound of elephants eating near our tent. Dont worry, though, it is perfectly safe.

The food: kudos to the chef who cooked us several typical local meals which were absolutely delicious. The staff is very friendly and thoughtfull !

The safari: certainly the aspect in which Hansa has the greatest expertise of all. Trust him and his vehicle of choice to find the most hidden animals of the Yala Park. Dont be jealous of other tourists' comfortable-looking Jeep... Hansa and his driver's will take you to otherwise unatteinable places!
During our stay we saw no less than 3 leopards, including a mating couple.

To sum up, it was a wonderful experience that we couldnt have lived anywhere else. Trust the team to make your stay unforgettable!

From start to finish, we had a great time at Pardus Seek. Greeted with fresh fruit juice and shown to our very comfortable tent. Lunch was one of the best curries we've eaten on our trip (well 5 curries) and then we set off on safari to block 5 of Yala National Park and were lucky to see 3 leopards, an elephant as well as a plethora of other animals and bird life. We went back to camp and then to the local beach for a fantastic bbq by the sea- complete with lanterns, absolutely delicious sea food and meat (so much food!!) beers and the starriest sky. We slept surprisingly soundly despite being in the middle of the jungle and then were once again treated to a delicious breakfast of pancakes with coconut and hoppers and fruit! Amazing- would definitely recommend in preference to staying at Cinnamon or Jetwing which caters to mass tourism

Hansa and his team work miracles. Great location, and accommodation. But the food is exceptional, which is impressive given the location and the fact that this place is low impact on the environment. We stayed two nights and did one full day safari. It's an early start, but Well worth it. We were first into the park in the morning and Sam our driver did a great job of finding good spots to view from, even when others were already watching. Beach bbq is worthwhile, possibly the best fish I've eaten. And it's really special location, with the waves crashing over the rocks. The highlight of our trip to Sri Lanka and one of those events we will look back on for years to come.

We spend two wonderful nights at Pardus Seek. The service and food we got here was better than anywhere else in Sri Lanka, and Hansa and his staff really went out of their way to make our stay perfect. So glad we booked this place! It was at first not completely clear to us when we booked on Agoda that this is an all-inclusive camp with breakfast, dinner, lunch and drinks all included, so for the price the service we got was really incredible. The tents were a bit rustic as expected but spotlessly clean with very nice bathrooms and comfortable beds. The only thing that could have made our stay even more perfect is if they would replace the mosquito nets more often, as ours had a couple of holes, and the tent also had some holes that could be fixed - we would not have minded paying a bit more to have new mosquito nets. Thank you to Hansa and his team for a very memorable experience and all the amazing food!
