Amazing Experaince We stayed at the Wild Trails for three days and its everything and more than what we expected, the camp is based in the jungle just encroaching the Yalla National Park boundary. In the evening there is a lone Elephant that comes to drink water just outside the camp's electric fence. First day, we hired the camp's Safari... More

Safe, secure and very clean tents. Very helpful friendly staff. I dont mind it's location a little outside away from the national park. It was perfect with my 3 year old. We were the only customers during our stay but I highly recommend them. The food was served with the bonfire set and we loved the food the young chef... More

Danu the naturalist did the most wonderful walking safari followed by a brilliant morning with no less than eleven elephants, plus crocodiles and incredible birds. Danu was a wonderful guide, able to answer any and all questions. The food was exceptional and we loved our cold beer at the campfire. Cannot wait to go back.

A tented camp consisting of 4 large tents in the middle of nowhere. That's what is it's all about. All fine if that's what you're looking for, but don't expect much more. Its not so close to Yala Park as many of the other resorts, the camp is relatively basic, the food is just really not good and it doesn't... More

The location of the property and the quality of the tents is great, but the overall experience was quite bad. We had taken 2 tents at the camp and were offered a few things on arrival. The wake up call never materialised for both days as the staff dint wake up themselves and hence no morning tea/coffee as was promised.... More

Stayed at Wild Trails for two nights in December 2015 and I'd highly recommend Wild Trails for a trip to Yala. The tent itself was very nice, spacious and clean. In spite of being a safari tent, it was actually the most spacious accommodation I had while in Sri Lanka. The tent did get quite hot during the Sri Lankan... More

We had two great days at Wild Trails together with Milly and his crew. The tent was almost like a bungalow, included western style toilet and shower. The guys served coffee and tea at the tent in the morning before the morning safari, and we got a nice breakfast at the poarch when we arrived back from the safari. And... More

This was a big change of pace for me, as I am not really the camping type. Everything was incredibly clean and maintained well, but it is absolutely still camping. As others mentioned, the food could really be improved. We loved eating Sri Lankan food, so focus on that! That would really add to the experience. But they were so... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A visit to Sri Lanka is never complete without a tour to a wild life sanctuary. Out of the many wild life parks it has to offer its visitors, Yala National Park situated in the deep south of the island is a must visit. Abundant with wildlife, where the majestic Sri Lankan elephant still reigns supreme and the ever elusive leopard, in its graceful elegance, tip toes its way to a hunt or to quench its thirst at its favourite water hole. Experience Sri Lanka’s big 5 from the corridors of their habitats and listen to the music of the birds on the canopy above, and hear the animal calls as you were among them, sharing their space. Yala is a park that has to be experienced from within. At Wild Trails we offer you an experience; a camping facility with luxurious accommodation, unforgettable hospitality and a sumptuous array of food and a tasteful collection of spirits and wines. ... more   less
