Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safaris offer an unforgettable camping and safari experience in the Sri Lankan wilderness.
Founded in 2006 by wildlife specialist Noel Rodrigo this award-winning safari company offers luxury tented accommodation on the outskirts of two of Sri Lanka’s best national parks – one is located by the elephant fence at Yala National Park in southeast Sri Lanka and the other is on the edge of Wilpattu National Park on the northwest coast.
Whilst staying at the camps you’ll enjoy early morning and late afternoon safaris with highly experienced guides and you’ll have a chance to get up close to Sri Lankan wildlife, including elusive leopards.
Noel is known as Sri Lanka’s ‘Leopard Man’ and leopards are a particular focus for the company, hence the name!
Both Yala and Wilpattu National Parks are renowned for their thriving leopard population and these incredible creatures are frequently seen on game drives. You’re also likely to see a variety of birds, reptiles and mammals, including elephants, sloth bears and monkeys.
The camps at Yala and Wilpattu are made up of semi-permanent structures with fully customised mobile tents which allow you to appreciate the natural beauty of your surroundings without compromising on comfort.
The company put great emphasis on sustainable and eco-friendly tourism practices at their camps and their aim is to offer a unique safari experience that doesn’t impact the habitat of the wildlife in the areas surrounding their campsites.
