Wild Coast Tented Lodge: Glamping in Yala National Park

Yala National Park is the most popular area to see leopards and Elephants in Sri Lanka. Staying in Yala wasn’t really on the radar until last year when these cocoon-shaped tented lodges opened up. This next-level safari lets you camp between elephants and monkeys by daytime and leopards in the night.

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 definitely 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.

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.

    Omg it looks perfect, but the price… Is there anything like this, but less expensive?
