My partner and I stayed for one night at Mahoora. We arrived at 11.30am. We were very kindly greeted and given a welcome cocktail. We were staying in the west of the island but wanted to do one night away on safari, we were keen on the camping aspect! Our tent was amazing! We loved it! When we arrived it...

We enjoyed 3 nights at Mahoora as part of our honeymoon in August. We opted for the honeymoon package which we were over the moon with. From the first encounter the staff at the Mahoora were the warmest, most professional and pleasant we had encountered across Sri Lanka. Our tent was very comfortable and quickly became home, the addition of...

We spent 2 nights with the team at Mahoora in August and our experience could not have been bettered. Before we even got to the camp, Dilan had been amazingly helpful regarding a change we had to make to our booking. Once there, Chummi, AJ, Sadjit and the rest of the team were brilliant. Our tent was great, very luxurious...

A tented, memorable jungle experience enjoyed by us all thanks to the attentive service of Major Chaminder and his staff. Cocktails around the evening bonfires followed by dinner with silver service proved to be a particular treat, not to mention the day's safari with an exceptional naturalist, Sarangar, whose patience paid off with our sighting of 'the big three': sloth...

This place is hard to describe and hard to sum up in words because it's absolutely incredible. Although the place looks great (especially all lit up at night) it's more about the atmosphere that they have created. The staff are excellent and genuinely enjoy making sure you're comfortable and happy. You get the feeling you could ask for anything! The...

We loved this place. Amazingly comfortable tents, definitely glamourous camping. The camp is very well set out so that the tents are separated and you feel like you are on your own in the bush.
