We had an incredible experience with Kulu Safaris. The campsite and tents were amazing. The rooms were quite large, had a nice bathroom and even came equipped with air-conditioning. Each meal was set-up at a different spot on the campsite and the food was delicious. They were able to accommodate one of our travellers that prefers Western food. Manjula our...

A simply outstanding experience! We stayed for 2 nights and had trips into the park over three days. Accommodation was spectacular, better than lots of hotels. Service was faultless, the team could not have been more helpful or accommodating. The food was some of the best we had in Sri Lanka, and it was amazing eating in the environs. Sudesh...

We stayed here in March for 2 nights of our 10 night holiday and it made our holiday. The staff, food, accommodation and scenery were amazing. We saw a leopard, sloth bears, elephants and plenty of birds and buffalo the only shame was we didn't take a decent camera!

Kulu Safaris is simply top notch! From start to finish it is by far and away the best customer service of our whole 2 weeks in Sri Lanka!!

We truly enjoyed Yala Safaris. Kulu are Premium. Great quality lodges. Great food. Smiles, kindness. Errol was a star. A tip: make sure your morning coffee, (at 05:15!!) is as short as possible, even, skip it and go directly to your visit. Block 1 is near, but very popular in the morning. You'll enter the park rigorously following the arrival...

Our family spent a weekend at the camp....it was an absolutely fantastic experience, particularly for the kids. We were assigned a guide/naturalist (Sudesh) and a driver (Namal) on arrival, and the two of them took care of us really well throughout our stay. The safari trips were quite interesting....and Sudesh's patient explanation to the kids made a huge difference. Namal...

We had a wonderful time with Kulu Safaris! We spent two days with Kulu Safaris as part of our honeymoon and thoroughly enjoyed it. We went on three safaris - and even were lucky enough to see a leopard kill a spotted deer. The guides and staff are attentive and you really do feel like this is a VIP experience....

An interesting Sri Lankan experience in well appointed tents. We did struggle with the temperature during our stay as Sri Lanka was experiencing a massive heatwave at the time but enjoyed our self just the same. We were very well looked after and enjoyed our safaris in the national park. The food was great and nothing was too much trouble...
