Wild Coast Tented Lodge is a seaside safari lodge located in Yala National Park on Sri Lanka’s southern coast. Dotted with luxurious cocoon style lodgings, this is Asia’s answer to Out Of Africa. Between daily game drives seeking the elusive leopard, you will lounge in your luxury, no detail missed, ‘tent’ complete with copper bath and leather chairs.
When you’re not in your cocoon or private pool, you can relax by the infinity pool and bouldered beach below. Again, the Resplendent groups surreal service and unparalleled cuisine and dining experiences are a highlight of the stay. Local delicacies like Hoppas are on offer at every meal and the staff talk you through the history of each meal and ingredient.
Here, I made friends! One of my most treasured elements of my solo adventures is the people I meet along the way. This time it was an incredible couple from New York, typically overworked and overachieving and seeking an adventure which would take them out of the norm. We laughed and bonded over our morning game drives and into the evening over sun downers. How lucky am I?!
Luxury camping in the company of Elephants, Leopards, Bears and new friends from around the world awaits… xHermione.
