Sri Lanka, Puttalam & The North West
Info : Kulu Wilpattu
Kulu Safaris bring their considerable wildlife experience and expertise just to Wilpattu National Park. Kulu have a long history of taking you as close to Sri Lanka's wildlife as it is possible to be; providing the highest quality guides, naturalists and jeeps in Sri Lanka. Here a typical Sri Lankan bungalow is your base for safaris into the national park.
Wilpattu is Sri Lanka’s largest national park and is a great place to explore its wonderfully diverse wildlife, not least leopards, elephants and - if you are very lucky - the sloth bear. While the density of leopards is not quite as high as in the more famous Yala National Park, the number of other tourists is dramatically lower. Therefore you still have a very good chance of seeing them but without sharing the experience with any number of other jeeps. Wilpattu is the best place in Sri Lanka to get a combination of wilderness while still seeing its wonderful wildlife up close.
You will be very well looked after by the Kulu team at the bungalow. There is aset menu and candlelit dinners are provided on the terrace. Two safari drives with Kulu's expert wildlife guides per day are included and the Kulu Jeeps provide for a comfortable and unobtrusive way to explore the wild expanses of Wilpattu. The Kulu guides speak English as a first language and care passionately about this environment. There are few people better equipped to guide you in this environment. All entrance and transport costs, food, drink and refreshments are included during your stay and while you are in the park.
Eco/Adventure - This category covers gorgeous lodges in the jungle, comfortable safari camps and dreamy, but simple, beach cabanas. These places defy conventional categorisation: what is communing with nature to one person may be terrifying bugs to another! Many of these places are very comfortable and the service generally of a very high level - but please read the website review carefully and/or talk to us and be sure to have understood what you are letting yourselves in for!
