Very good”
Nice camping hotel right next to the Yala Safari entrance. Interesting concept of a tub right in the middle of the room - didn't get to use it with young kids around - but if you are on honeymoon looks like a great idea. Everything was included in our package and they did a great job with the safari. The food was fabulous and the service was excellent! The dinner setup at night was amazingly pretty - but carry your totchlight if you want to avoid stepping into little puddles etc!

Amazing staff, food and facilities ”
All the staff were exceptionally welcoming and the food, especially the arrival lunch, was some of the best we had on our whole trip. We saw an abundance of wild life on the tour and around the camp site. The tent was spacious and the bed was comfortable, a few little critters inside the tent but nothing to worry about and really should be expected. Would highly recommend for a truly glamping experience to Yala!

Amazing Lodging and Staff”
My husband and I stayed for 2 nights, the staff is very welcoming, gives great service and the food is delicious. The tents are very large and beautiful. The tents are immaculate. The atmosphere is very calming since it's in the jungle, we were sad to leave the place and say goodbye to the charming staff. We took a safari with them and appreciated very much our guide Achintha, he is the best and could see that he is very genuine with the love of nature. We did take the full day and regret not taking the half day. It was 12 hrs long and very exhausting. I recommend highly this place.

Excellent service, great food, amazing experience ”
The good- 1) Excellent service - We really can't ask for more. They were all friendly and eager to help. Not only are they friendly and accommodating, but they do also go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. For example, they volunteered to wash our rental car because they saw how dirty it was. Made us their local home remedies for bug bites. 2) Restaurant-quality food - The meals were by a chef with extensive hotel restaurant experience. Beyond Sri Lankan cuisine, he also prepared an Italian spread for us, which was amazing. 3) Safari experience- you are just outside the National Park. The not-so-good- 1) One-day Safari- We didn't think the Jeep or trekker was good value for money. We paid US$190 for a full day tour. 2) Hot water wasn't working during our stay (to be fair, they are currently upgrading their tents, and the new tents should be ready in Dec-16). Although there were some small things that we were constantly complaining about during our stay (e.g. location, bugs, the heat, etc.), we don't think it's fair to pin it on the hotel. We opted for this outdoor camping experience, and naturally, these tiny inconveniences come with it. Overall, a great experience!

Cool experience at Yala Safari Camping”
Super friendly staff and very cool experience glamping in Yala. They took us for a safari ride (~6 hours) and were strategic on how to go about finding the animals! Dinner at the camp was great as well. Only thing is it was super hot in the tent at night -- they had a huge fan but I couldn't get it to stop oscillating. Of course there were a few bugs in the tent as well but that was to be expected while camping. Overall, a good experience.

The staff are very nice and friendly. But the facility could be improved. Without in tent is really too hot to fall asleep. The fan is too noisy. Comparatively it is too expensive.

Great Safari Experience”
We had a great experience. We went during "off season" so we're the only guests. Tents are clean and spacious, with solar powered electricity and a high powered fan, beds are very comfortable, bathroom had large tub with shower attachment and heated water. We were travelling with very young children who loved the safari and the experience. Saw all the major animals. Guide was extremely knowledgeable with a good eye (especially for the many bird species). Food was brilliant and very well presented. The staff were amazing, so eager to please. I would say pack with minimal luggage when going to Yala to make the experience seamless. We travelled with young children and they struggled alittle doing back to back safari's that were nearly 4 hours long so I would suggest if you have young children maybe book in for only one safari although we loved both. It is quite expensive but a unique experience so well worth it if you have not camped before.

Excellent time”
Stayed here with a friend I met traveling, and we had a great experience. We went during "off season" so we're the only guests. Tents are clean and spacious, with solar powered electricity (and a power bar with various plugs) and a high powered fan, beds are very comfortable, bathroom had large tub with shower attachment and heated water. Safari was amazing saw all the major animals including two leopards and enough elephants that we were sick of them! Guide was extremely knowledgeable with a good eye (especially for the many bird species). Food was quite good and very well presented. The staff was amazing! Sand unlike many places this is truly camping in the jungle. They were able to us up and drop us back at the bus station and even chased down the highway bus (alas it was full). Excellent, excellent, excellent

Unique and must-try experience ”
Although slightly more pricey than other hotels in the region, what you get in experience of having the safari right next to you, living in the national park amongst jungle and sounds of wildlife, more than makes up for this. Dinner was incredible and the camp very comfortable. Friendly staff. Would come again

Unforgettable Safari ”
Mahesh and his team epitomise the spirit of today's young entrepreneurs! Totally dedicated and passionate in making our stay perfect. The location of their facilities, in the buffer zone close to the back gate gave us priority access to Yala National Park. Saw leopard on the very first day!! The team worked really hard , we entered the park at about 2.30 pm and was the last to leave at 6.30pm Saw tusker elephant, wild water buffalos , hornbills and many other animals. Our second safari started at 6am the next day and within half an hour we saw another leopard. followed by another 2 sightings !! Our nature guide even spotted jackals for us. We had tasty, freshly made lovely meals. Totally unforgettable experience. Recommend highly to all.

Camping in the jungle...couldn't have been better!”
Excellent staff, always ready and available to help. Mahesh, Achinter, Vimukti and Kavin were great. Food was as good as it could be in the middle of the jungle. Safari tour guide Achinter was good.
We were a family of 4 with 2 kids age 7 & 3 years. Initially I was a little nervous about this whole camping in the jungle concept. But as soon as we met Mahesh and then saw the campsite, I knew we were in good hands. The camp is actually in the middle of jungle with nothing around, except nature. Tent and its facilities were extremely comfortable. Good bed, bathroom facilities, hot water...everything was excellent. We had a great full day Safari experience with guide Achinter with breakfast by the lake and lunch by the beach. Couldn't spot leopards, but saw all other animals like elephants, crocodiles, peacocks, wild boars, deer's, buffaloes, different kids of birds etc etc. The cook did a great job. All camp staff Mahesh, Achinter, Vimukti, Kaavin were friendly, ready to serve and trying to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
