Kulu Safaris offer comfortable accommodation with a minimal ecological footprint, while experiencing a definitive wildlife experience.
Facilities & location
The spirit of Kulu is to tread lightly, leaving a minimal footprint on the natural ecology. Kulu operates several campsites that are non-permanent, yet strive to offer the most comfortable accommodation with touches of luxury for the comfort of their guests. Their campsites are handpicked for their remoteness – most often their guests are the only dinner party for miles!
All tents have been custom-made in South Africa by one of the world’s leading safari outfitters. The Base Camp in Yala offers large tents (each tent is over 200 sq. ft.) that are secured on raised wooden platforms. Each tent includes a small deck for some private space to sip an evening drink, or to relax with a good book. The tents have en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold showers. The fly screens support excellent ventilation while keeping out pesky critters.
Kulu’s Yala camp is ideally situated to explore the multiple sectors (referred to locally as ‘blocks’) of Yala National Park. For guests staying three or more nights, they run full-day excursions (with a packed, bush-lunch included!) to Block three, four and five and Lunugamvehera National Park.
They also offer a mobile safari option, for tailor-made camping experiences to suit specific client requests. Although these tents are smaller, they are comfortable, cool, and well equipped. Often, they deploy these tents to host Wildlife Documentary clients, who need to be more agile when filming wildlife in remote parts of the island. The mobile option is also popular among adventurous groups seeking a unique and customized ‘off the beaten track’ experience.

Combine Kulu's Yala camp with Elephant Watch Camp in Samburu, Kenya.
Encounter diminutive Asian elephants in the rivers and grasslands of Yala, before heading to the home of Save the Elephants to track their towering African relatives. Here, the arid Samburu terrain, with its rock-strewn valleys, is in stark contrast to the lush tropical landscapes of Sri Lanka.
