“We cannot recommend Leopard Safaris highly enough. We stayed at a range of accommodations while in Sri Lanka–from luxury eco-resorts to Airbnb–and Noel runs the most professional operation of them all, and leaves the high-end luxury resorts (e.g. Jetwing) in his dust. It felt like nothing was an issue, effort or burden for Noel and his team. All of his team are fantastic, but we worked with Saj the most and can’t speak highly enough of his welcoming and friendly nature, sense of humor, great enthusiasm and passion for what he does (i.e. revel in nature and wildlife!), and utmost professionalism. Seriously, Saj – will you be our friend?! ;o)
(...)The campsite (accommodations, dining, lounge etc.) strike a great “glamping” balance – modern luxuries (e.g. porcelain toilet), but not excessively developed, so there is comfort without feeling like the area has been flattened for tourists (in fact, Noel replanted/reforested a lot of the area, having been cleared previously by farmers)
– The traditional Sri Lankan food was the best bar none – we ate only traditional Sri Lankan food for our 3-week trip, from roadside to home-cooked meals to luxury dining, and not only were the meals at Leopard Safaris the best versions of what we’d eaten elsewhere, there were also a host of other traditional dishes we’d never seen (I’m converted to wood apples!)

Thank you Noel, Saj, and everyone at Leopard Safari’s for a lifetime of memories and an all-too-brief stay. Please do keep to your values and good work, and hopefully we can come back soon!”
