Well this place was a bit different from your average hotel in Sri Lanka. Very much big game Africa themed to the long drive in, the 'game lodge' main building with the rooftop scenic viewing, the beautifully presented detached ‘huts’ for sleeping dotted about the enclosure, the odd chance of running into a cow or two in the night! Very atmospheric and authentic, unique and an excellent place to stay within Yala Park. It has to be said that Yala it self is only OK I would say in terms of a game reserve for viewing. Sri Lanka does not have the big five of Africa although there are still some great experiences to be had. Having said that some of guests had regular sightings of the elusive leopard which would certainly make the long journey worthwhile.
