Kulu Safaris, the pioneers of mobile tented safaris in Sri Lanka, are a respected wildlife company. Discuss your wildlife interests in advance and, whether birds, leopards or elephants, the Kulu team will personalise your game drives and take you on routes where you are more likely to see your favourite animals. The Kulu Safaris camping experience is highly recommended for nature lovers including families with children. A minimum stay of two nights is highly recommended.
The Kulu Safaris experience begins with lunch and an afternoon game drive towards 3.00 pm. Once back at the camp, while you relax and change, the Kulu team gets ready for the evening. Hurricane lamps are lit, tables are arranged under the trees, and finally, a sumptuous meal is served around a crackling bonfire. After a rewarding day, retire to your simple but comfortable tent while the sounds of the jungles lull you to sleep. Next morning guests can opt for a dawn game drive or choose to relax on a hammock and soak in the atmosphere.
Kulu Safaris offers an all-inclusive rate which includes accommodation, all meals and snacks; all beverages including tea/coffee, bottled water, soft drinks, one bottle of wine per couple /per night, a limited number of beer and local liquors; park entrance and tracker fees; and two game drives per day.
