Leopard Safari w. Luxury Camping (2d/1n)
At Leopard Trails, the aim is it to provide a Sri Lankan wildlife safari experience in spectacular solitude and soothing comfort – with only the canvas walls of your guest’s tent separating them from the wonders of our remarkable bio diversity. We aim to provide an authentic back to nature experience that needs to be experienced to be appreciated.
During the grand era of the British dominion, Ceylon was one of the world’s most sought after locations for truly exotic expeditions. The 1800’s witnessed the arrival of British adventurers such as Samuel L. Baker, and with them, hunting and exploration safaris replete with a small army of butlers, cooks, and trackers. These explorers did not travel in a rough, rustic manner, but enjoyed well-furnished, spacious tents fully stocked with the finest food and drink. At the glorious height of the empire, a complete bar, expert cooks, local guides and the best camping paraphernalia were not out of the ordinary, but expected. These bespoke safaris expertly anticipated every possible need or want of British explorers in wild Ceylon.
Today, Leopard Trails Classic Mobile Camping returns to the original spirit and true essence of ‘safari’, reminiscent of a golden era – an era of elegance, romance and adventure.
This Classic luxury canvas accommodation is combined with morning game drive, and evening game drive in customized safari game viewing vehicle
The Leopards Trails Wildlife Safari can be combined with all Island Tours go-lanka offers.
Special helicopter transfers can also be arranged for your guests to our remote camp sites through our internal aviation partners, Deccan Aviation.
Meals in the wild are an event! Enjoy fine cuisine prepared with the freshest ingredients by a specially trained cook. Served by attentive hosts in a large, candlelit dining setting. Savor the selection of fine wine or cocktails from a fully stocked bar. Then, retire to a comfortable lounge chair by the ‘crackling’ campfire.
