Millis Potter Insight

If you want to experience Sri Lanka’s wildilfe but in the comfort of a luxurious private pavilion and your idea of heaven is listening to nature’s sounds from a private plunge pool, then Chena Huts is ideal for you.

The game drives into Yala allow you to adventure through the wildlife in small jeeps with a maximum of 4 guests at a time, however don’t be suprised if there is a queue..
