The Location

The Big Game campsite is located close to the “Katagamuwa” entrance (off Katharagama) facing the park boundary, with a 15 to 20 minute drive to the park entrance. The Campsite is situated in a mini forest reserve surrounded by a vast array of flora and fauna that is unique to the area. It is inevitable that our guests get to observe and be a part of the natural wilderness within such a setting.

The area is a haven for a wide array of birds, which not only forage and hunt in the area, but also nest in the trees. The campsite might also give you glimpses of axis deer and the occasional Sri Lankan Elephant. It is not unknown to hear the sound of leopards and see the mischief that the various species of monkeys – purple-faced langurs and toque macaques – get up to. There is a watering hole in the campsite that attracts thirsty animals, and this gives our guests a great opportunity to observe wildlife up close.


Game Drives with Big Game

We like to provide a different experience for our clients; therefore, we use the park entrance that is not commonly used, as we find that this provides our guests a better experience with regard to privacy and drive time.

The initial drive, from the campsite to the park’s ticket office / main entrance is also a part of the safari, as it takes you through a forested area on the borders of the Yala National Park. Some of our clients and naturalists have even spotted the occasional wandering leopard or sloth bear on this route. Morning safaris start early, and we leave the campsite at 5.30am to ensure that we are the first to be there and the first to reach the main areas of the park. We make sure that there are no compromises when it comes to your game viewing experience.

Early mornings and late evenings are the best times for wildlife viewing and photography or filming. 

Our Safari Packages      


We are also equipped toprovide customised services for clients. (Family safaris, honeymoon safaris, photography safaris,etc.)

All this can be arranged at a nominal additional charge.

More information about Yala National Park


Although the tents are set up far from local villages, bear in mind that this area is very quiet, so the distant sound of a radio or temple chant may sometimes carry to the campsite. These occurrences are rare, but we would like to keep our customers informed in case such situations arise. 


“Great Service and Nice Place”

Me and my family enjoyed it very much. The boss and his staff are very helpful and do everything for their guest for a pleasant stay. 
Our tent was equipped with a water toilet and a shower which was very nice. The beds are comfortable and there is a fan. If you expect an air conditioning you should go to another place. 
The camp is very eco friendly and tries to avoid plastic, collects metal, glass etc and recycles what can be recycled.

Big Game Camp Yala is located near the boundary of the park, a mere 20 minute drive to the entrance. This semi-wilderness location lies just behind the Nimalawa Sanctuary. The campsite is frequently visited by elephants, and night-time wilderness walks can be arranged.
