Wild Coast Tented Lodge
Yala National Park, Sri Lanka
Escape to the Wild Coast Tented Lodge for a holistic wilderness experience located in Southeast Sri Lanka.

However, if you’re feeling up for a road trip, you will have the chance on the Tea Trails to stop at the Dilmah funded Elephant Transit Home to visit the orphaned elephants before they are released back into the wild.
Once you arrive, the tented camp is situated on an empty beach overlooking the Indian Ocean. With open-air bamboo dining, a free-form swimming pool, Sri Lankan cuisine and luxury safari experiences, it is sure to be an unforgettable escape.
