The Romeo of Nelumwila

Wilpattu National Park

Ears pointed forward, eyes focused on a target in the distance this spotted killing machine is getting ready for a hunt. This is one of the largest male leopards seen in the Wilpattu National park. Known with the frequent visitors as the male of Nelumvila this gorgeous predator is close to 4 years old. He’s seen courting many females around the park and has made his territory around Nelumwila and expanding the territory day by day.

The leopard subspecies you can see in Sri Lanka is physically larger due to being the top predator in the wilderness. These solitary hunters can be seen dosing off on tree tops after a big meal. Mahoora Tented Safari camps, Wilpattu offers an amazing safari experience for the guests with a personal naturalist so you won’t miss opportunities like this.



Much more than just a great place to stay

"Thanks to our guide Avinka we had five great safaris staying four nights just after reopening this February. The staff made us feel so very welcome during the entire stay.

The safaries are just wonderful, and having a great guide in your vehicle makes a big difference. Avinka can spot animals you would never see and we were even lucky enough to sight leopards on the trees, close to our vehicle, and also running through the field. The wildlife is so exciting that you will have a great experience even if you don‘t see any leopards. We also had a great driver, which is essential if you drive through difficult territory. You are being taken care of the entire time, so even for those who do safaris for the first time, you will always feel safe.

The camp itself is very comfortable, you get everything you can think of, and on top of the great food being served with so much attention and friendliness. You also get wonderful vegetarian and vegan options. They put on bonfires at night, which makes it unforgettable.
When booking and making plans, you get great support from the headquarters, even if it gets difficult since you have to change your plans.
The best thing what can happen to you at the end of a vacation is when you are a bit sad to leave the place, having experienced something to remember forever, and the team does everything for this to happen. Thank you so much"
