Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safaris
If you want a safari stay with all the added creature comforts – chilled drinks in a well-stocked cool box, WiFi in the ‘lounge’, delicious food and the most tempting tents – follow in leopards’ footsteps to Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safaris in Yala. Here you’ll see safari’s fun side, from mini camp cookery classes by the chefs to cocktails and canapés served by head-torch-toting bartenders to starlit dinners at daily changing locations. Bed down in one of the Classic Mobile Tents, which come with solar-powered lights, bedside fans, a flushable toilet and a private hot water shower, or splash out on one of the two Luxury Lodge Tents. (We’ll be telling you more about our favourite of these, Water Buffalo, very soon.) Stays at this camp include two daily safaris in the camp’s customised Toyota Land Cruisers, activities such as nature walks and star gazing, plus all meals, drinks and snacks.
