What an amazing safari experience. We spent 3 nights here. The wild life was amazing, the accommodation wonderful. More like glamping than camping. The food and alfresco dining was just lovely. The staff were incredibly attentive, excellent wines served with dinner. Just wished we could have stayed longer. Many thanks to Errol and his team for a very memorable experience

We spent 2 days at Kulu with our 2 little boys (2 and 4). It was an awesome experience and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it. The tent was totally sealed so I no concerns about bugs! There was also air conditioning in the tent but we didn't use it at nights as the ceiling fan was fine. The safari was...

We stayed for 2 nights which included 2 morning and one evening safari. Having experienced safaris in three other African countries we were looking forward to seeing how the Sri Lanka experience would compare - and the truth is you can't compare them, they are just different. My keen photographer husband was delighted with the bird life and our guides...

We stayed one night with Kulu and had an extraordinary experience: we luckily saw three leopards and many elephants, deers, peacocks, buffalos, etc. The camp was very neat and tidy, food was good. Our naturalist, Sundesh was very attentionate and knowledgeable about the flora and fauna in the park. The whole safari was well organized. We enjoyed our safari with...

Everything organized by this team was superb. Most importantly, the sightings were excellent. When I see what other people go through with other tour groups, I felt so bad for them. Do not choose a different tour group than Kulu Safaris. They give you the kinds of viewing opportunities that is the best. That is why National Geographic and Disney...

My wife and I spent two days here with four rounds of guided safari in Yala National Park, early mornings and evenings - all inclusive accommodation (drinks and meals) - a spacious, comfortable and well maintained tent.

We had an absolutely wonderful 2 day safari. I would have to agree with another reviewer that, compared to African Safaris, the animals are quite scarce, though my husband saw lots of birds that were new to him. We did see a leopard briefly in the undergrowth, it was pouring with rain so he probably didn't look his best, we...

Originally we hadn't planned to stay here but we were SO pleased we did. It really is fantastic. The tent was extremely comfortable with plenty of hot water for our shower.
