Yala National Park is a Sri Lankan treasure. The country’s most visited and second largest national park, the massive natural habitat is a wildlife sanctuary full of tropical flora and endangered fauna, from elephants and leopards to Sri Lankan flying snakes and painted-lip lizards. And while seeing the wildlife in action is a treat unto itself, now eco-conscious and luxury-loving travelers can enhance the experience by staying in the sustainably minded safari camp next door.
Built in an evocative natural architecture, the Wild Coast Tented Lodge is a five-star luxury eco-resort set between stunning beaches and the national park’s wilderness on the country’s southern tip. Designed by Nomadic Resorts and Bo Reudler Studio, the resort welcomed its first guests in November 2017.
