This was my second visit to WSC and it was as good as the first! The tents were great, the food was fantastic, and the park magical. We saw 7 leopards, 4 golden jackals, numerous birds, a herd of bathing elephants, and much more. Namal, as always, was brilliant company in the park and by the fireside. Definitely my go-to place in Wilpattu!

WSC is a very peaceful location that borders on semi luxury and epitomizes the conservation of our wildlife. The food at WSC is scrumptious with the staff being very attentive. I will recommend WSC to all at any time. The owners are very conservation minded and their knowledge of our wildlife specially the wildlife in the area and the park are of high standard. Watch out for those occasional visitors in the night and ensure you keep away from them. Always a fantastic experience.

The visitors that you have to look out for are not paying guests 🙂. We are a true wilderness camp and the elephants know that they will not be harresed in the camp. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the food at camp and understand the concept of the camp. Thank you for taking time to reviewing us.

Spent my birthday at wilpattu safari camp.we had the most amazing time. We were treated not like guests but more like good friends. Darrell & Christo were always courteous & made us feel so comfortable. Namal has a wealth of knowledge about wilpattu & srilankan wildlife. It was an absolute pleasure sharing stories with him over dinner or a drink. It gives you a true wildlife camp experience. Finally the staff, the chef's meals were absolutely delicious & is just what you need after a day of game drive. The rooms are kept clean & simple. The staff is always with a smile they have even arranged a special dinner for me & my fiance & provided us with a private service. Thank you wilpattu safari for making my birthday weekend amazing.

Awesome place in a very natural environment and very close to the wilpattu Nochiagama entrance. Friendly staff. Good food. Very good service. Stayed there for 2 nights and highly recommend this place. Thanks to Christoph, Darrel and staff. Special thanks to Hemantha who found my vehicle number plate which I lost in a water patch inside the parc.

From start to finish this was one of the most awesome experiences. My partner and I were treated like family and honored guests, all at the same time! WSC's hospitality was warm, inclusive and welcoming. The food was outstanding - simple yet delicious. We lacked for nothing. If we asked, we received! Thanks to Christo and the team at the camp for looking after us so well. Within the park, with vehicle and driver provided by WSC, our experiences were just fabulous aided by the knowledge and caring of our driver and our erstwhile spotter (Christo). We lucked out in this department too, adding 5 bear sightings, 1 leopard, 2 elephant, 5 barking deer, 5 Sambhur, including a mother and baby and a magnificent stag, plenty of dancing peacocks and as many amazing bird sightings as our eyes could absorb! what an amazing 3 days we had. Thanks WSC - although the words are not enough!!
