Aliya Safari adventure camping is not about comfortable, stylish accommodation with ensuite bathroom. On the other hand we give our word that this is a great adventure experience: staying in a tent - in the jungles of Sri Lankan national parks in good company with our jungle team.
The most frequently used location is Yala National Park, block 1. Why is that? Primarily we would generally offer our safari tour services in the Yala expanse because this is our natural home area seen from our 'base camp' north of Yala.
The second reason for organizing safaris mainly in Yala block 1 is that there are more wildlife sightings and generally a great variation of photo opportunities. There is currently no parallel safari area in Sri Lanka; this is the bottom line so we'll tell this openly. The block 1 has to be recommended for most sightings in shortest time and it's for good reasons this place is the most popular safari area in Sri Lanka.
Alternative Yala areas beyond block 1 have different advantages and a higher degree of real wilderness feeling experience and loneliness since there are no crowds. If leopard sightings and variety is not the primary choice, then new areas can be suggested for day tour safaris.
Please note that description of facilities and the rates are valid for 'adventure camp' bookings for Yala National block 1. There may be differences for camps at other locations so
please get in touch with us for further information.
For our planning and logistics early bookings are necessary, appreciated and recommended (ideally more than 2 months prior to arrival and better much earlier!).
Please keep in mind that this is 'camping' and arranged at remote locations so bookings can't be taken by us from day-to-day like a hotel. Bookings must be made well in advance to give time for required planning. Availability of all safari camp events are depending on weather seasons, accessibility of sites in the parks and how busy our team is.
