Twenty-first century safari in Sri LankaYala National Park, Sri Lanka

On a deserted beach in Sri Lanka’s Yala National Park – the best place in the country to spot leopards – site a chilled luxury camp. With 28 super-cool, air-conditioned tents offer state-of-the art amenities arranged around ponds to attract birds and butterflies, Wild Coast Tented Lodge is set to be at the top of bucket lists.

Located where the jungle meets a pristine beach, overlooking the blue waters of the Indian Ocean, Wild Coast Lodge’s cocoon-like design utilises arched fabric structures that camouflage into the surrounding rocks and boulders.

Sister properties Cape Weligama and Ceylon Tea Trails set the bar high but Wild Coast Tented Lodge's superb restaurant and spa is world-class and the real treat and point of difference is the safari experiences. Wild Coast operates silent hybrid vehicles to track elephants and leopards, plus an on-site dive centre allows underwater explorers to observe the wrecks of Portuguese galleons.
