Our promise to preserve and protect

Eco Mission

Our business is focused on sustainability. At Leopard Safaris by KK Collection, we make it our mission to protect and preserve Sri Lanka’s national parks and reserves for generations to come. We also aim to reduce our carbon footprint, conserve nature reserves and protect the delicate balance of wildlife that thrives within them.

Our campsite was designed to respect our surrounding environment. Not a tree was felled when we established our unique Yala safari hotel, and we have added greatly to the environment of our campsites by planting trees and shrubs local to the area.

Green power
The majority of our energy at our luxury camp in Yala National Park is renewable, being sourced from solar panels and a dual battery system in our safari jeeps (this charges a second battery while the jeeps are being used on safari, for use in camp later on). We also use solar water pumps and a solar powered heating system for our showers in the luxury tents so as to have minimal impact on the delicate environment around us.
Community projects
Along with our commitment to wildlife conservation, we also have ongoing involvement in a variety of community projects designed to assist those in more deprived areas.
Collaborations
We support the Wildlife and Wilderness Trust with their ‘Spotting the Spots’ project by sharing photographs of leopards in Yala to help researchers identify individuals and determine changes in population statistics. We also support the Sri Lankan Wildlife Department in their efforts to combat poaching by reporting any suspicious behaviour.
Plant a tree
We encourage each of our guests to plant a tree during their stay at our campsites and get actively involved in our various up-cycling projects. Re-forestation is becoming critical, and this is only a small step, but every tree planted is a help in protecting the planet.
Green cuisine
Our food is locally sourced as much as possible, which means that it is not only supporting the local community, but it is also reducing gas emissions and energy consumption caused by industrial farming and long-distance produce transportation.
Green products
We use natural and recycled materials wherever possible – most of the timber used in the construction of our camps is either rejected timber or off-cuts. We only use organic toiletries. We focus on what we can reuse, and have a strict no plastics policy at our camps.
