The combination of the best of land and sea makes Yala one of the most sought out tourist destinations in Sri Lanka. The city of Yala is the location of the famous Yala National Park; a wild life sanctuary that is known for its highest leopard concentration in the entire world. No one leaves Yala without desperately desiring to spot a leopard but that unfortunately, is not always easily. When you begin your wild life excursion on a safari jeep into this national park, you will likely come across an array of different exotic species; even elephants are found here in plenty. But its leopards however, are usually hidden and require a little bit of planning in order to be spotted.
It is perhaps this desperate desire to spot these ferocious creatures that makes camping so popular in Yala. One of the factors that increase the chances of spotting a leopard is choosing the right time in the day to begin the leopard hunt. Since leopards are nocturnal and will most likely go to sleep once the sun comes up, experts believe that the best time to spot a leopard is just before sunrise. To be up and about and into the national park by this hour, it is pivotal to choose a hotel by the side of the Yala National Park. The Secret Hotels have recently opened a branch in Yala which is not only located at almost the entrance of the park but also offers luxury camping services as well.
Camping with the Secrets Yala is an experience truly worth indulging in. With picture perfect stretches of land that boasts a roaring beach on one side and an exciting wild life park on the other, one can never be more closer to the best of nature. While you indulge in this raw and authentic camping experience, rest assured that your safety and comforts are well taken care of. This is indeed the finest version of camping there is.
