We booked one night with two safaris. The tents were very well accommodated but the National Park fell short. A safari is just not a must see when going to Sri Lanka.
We also found the stay on the expensive side mostly because we were under the impression we would be staying inside of the park or at its borders but not on a random field 40 minutes away.
The reception and food was nice what is to be expected for the price but they charged us heavily for an Arrack taster. One other thing that bothered us was that the called so many times to confirm the meeting point even a couple hours in advance to make sure we would arrive in time. Even though we were more then punctual.
