Cadjan Wild - Yala
0 Km


Cadjan Wild is in the remote village of Kochchipathana off the Situlpahuwa Road near Kataragama. Set amidst three acres of wilderness, Cadjan Wild borders the Yala National Park which is inhabited by herds of wild elephants, the endangered leopard, bear, deer, wild boar and numerous species of migrant and endemic birds. Cadjan Wild is a true experience of living amidst nature. Deer, wild boar, and even the occasional elephant ambles into our gardens while monkeys, peacock and horn bills are found hovering on the tree tops. Listen to the leopard calling at night as you slumber under a cadjan thatched roof.

Encourage the guests to explore and enjoy this magnificent jungle, nothing must come in the way of the wild animals that live in this natural habitat and guests are urged not to feed wild animals, avoid loud noise, use water and electricity sparingly and help in conserving the fauna and flora. Guests are advised to come well prepared for life in the jungles and bring appropriate clothing, footwear, hat, a torch, and insect repellent.
