Nimal was a good host and was justly proud of the traditional Sri Lankan cuisine he provided.
Birdwatching from the veranda occupied a day in it's own right.
The spacious front room had mos net and fan.
Quiet peaceful location, well away from the main road.
The full day safari to Uda Walawe, organised by Nimal, was the wildlife highlight of our tour. We had time to park and wait while elephants approached us, rather than chasing after them. The guide was experienced and knowledgeable. He was keen to meet our requirements of the safari, but we had no idea we would see such a diversity.
