Big Game Camp Yala
Overview: The Big Game Safari Camp Yala is located bordering the Yala National Park with a 20-minute drive to the Park’s ticket office. As it is located adjacent to the Park’s boundary, it feels more like living inside the park. There is plenty of wildlife within the campsite; we have even experienced elephants and leopards on rare occasions. Your Yala safari camping experience holds surprises around every corner!
We provide a better Yala safari from the get-go; we use the Park entrance that is rarely used, as we find it a better experience in terms of privacy and drive time.
The initial drive – from the campsite to the National Park’s ticket office / main entrance – is also a part of the safari, as it takes you through a forested area on the borders of the Yala National Park. Some of our guests and naturalists have even spotted the occasional wandering leopard or sloth bear on this route. A morning Yala National Park safari starts early, and we leave the campsite at 5:30 am to ensure that we are the first to be there and the first to reach the main areas of the park. We have a No Compromise Policy when it comes to your game viewing experience.
