Sri Lanka, The Deep South
Info : Kulu Safaris
Waking up in the heart of a National Park is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Glimpses of the sun peek out from the surface of the lake, the birds begin to chatter over the scrubland, and the deer frolic a short distance away.
What makes Kulu Safaris stand out is that they understand, the best way to appreciate Yala National Park is to get right into the heart of the place and stay there. Surrounded by incredible flora and fauna of all shapes and sizes, you can see for yourself how unique the landscape is, and how varied and colourful birdlife can be.
Yala is no lazy stroll through the park, instead, it is wild, rough, uninhabited, and very exciting. Keep calm and be patient: you will be rewarded on an unforgettable Kulu Safari. The safari vehicles are modified Land Cruisers, imported from South Africa and accompanying you thoroughout are some of the most knowledgable guides in the region. With a wealth of information, a friendly outlook, and sheer enthusiasm for the area, they are vastly more helpful than the average day trip guide.
Activities and excursions are well paced, with plenty of time for navel gazing, or at least, the quiet appreciation of your surroundings on the morning and evening safari drives. Leopard and elephant spotting opportunities are excellent, and even the enigmatic sloth bear makes an appearance now and then.
Your home for the stay takes the form of a luxurious safari tent, complete with teak platforming, a terrace and ensuite bathroom facilities. There are comfy camp beds and lots of space, plenty of hanger and drawer storage for clothes, and even a washbasin in the tents. Guests can expect decent toilets and hot and cold showers. Gorgeous sunsets complement your evening meals, prepared in the clever mobile kitchen.
Entrance fees, meals, drinks, and equipment are all included, making this two day safari excellent value for money.
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!

We called Harriet in the UK and asked to move to a hotel with more facilities or closer to town. Our request was relayed through Colombo to the manager and resulted in a visit from the owner asking how he could make our stay better.
