Camping in Yala National Park
Wild Coast Tented Lodge has three kinds of stays. The cocoon pool suite with a pool, the cocoon suite and family cocoon suites with an urchin for children. In total there are 28 stays in the area. You can easily call this glamping instead of camping.
The inside of the tents are spacious and beautifully decorated. With furniture and accessories imported from India and Africa, the interior is one of a dream house. All copper details, matching furniture and even a freestanding copper bathtub.
Yala Wild Coast Tented Lodge already won several awards like the Best New Luxury Hotel of 2018!
The tents are eco-friendly and fully wrapped with canvas on the outside. Even the air conditioning was hidden in a beautiful copper cove.
During sunset, wild pigs and sometimes elephants come to the small streams next to your lodge to drink. Around the property are several streams where the animals gather during sunrise and sunset.
Dining at Wild Coast Tented Lodge
The dining area is in a beautiful bamboo dining dome called the Dining Pavilion. There is also a big swimming pool and the Ten Tuskers bar where you can get your cooldown cocktail directly at the pool.
Breakfast is a great selection of international favorites like fresh croissants, pastries, eggs, fruit, and delicious coffee. Sri Lankan breakfast is also an option.
For dinner, there is a daily changing menu of delicious Sri Lankan cuisines. Their quality of food is really something that’s going to surprise you.
Just to be sure, after dark they will escort you to the dining area so you won’t bump in wild elephants. ;-)
Yala National Park Safari
And when you’re in a national park, you, of course, have to do a safari to spot leopards and elephants. Go out with your guide in the early morning, or late afternoon. Learn about the park, its animals and be even more amazed by the place you are staying.
