We believe that our actions should benefit the local economy and as such we have a “buy local” policy. Most of our vegetables and fruits are bought fresh from the local market. At Wilpattu Safari Camp, we believe we have to be responsible residents and encourage similar minded visitors. The campsite is powered using renewable energy with a combination of solar and wind power. LED lights are the only lights in our site. Our toilets utilize dual flush systems. We separate all our solid waste and transport them out of the campsite for recycling. We try to minimize the use of plastic as well.
