Tree Tops Jungle Lodge is an authentic Sri Lankan and wilderness experience situated in wild elephant habitat in a remote bush and forest area of great, untamed, natural beauty. Come for silence, natural sounds, unique birdlife and relaxation combined with local walks in the vicinity of the lodge. Accommodation in super comfortable tented rooms set directly in and blending naturally with the bush and forest. Apart from enjoying our experiential nature living accommodation, go with us on safari tours to Yala National Park. The less visited northern block 5 of Yala is a really nice alternative and access is easy.

We stayed here for two nights as part of our honeymoon. We were the only guests during our stay which made it even more special. We went on two early morning walks into the jungle, the first morning we walked up hill and sat on a large rock formation to watch the sun rise.

Elephant dung !! At the lodge property ...
Hi, thank you for the question. We are happy to assist with this. We have a small network of local drivers / van owners and this should be easier for you than to organise it yourself. Practically also more simple and effective if you are going to Ella train station. We'll handle it from the lodge from where you are probably sent out in a 3-wheeler. Then meeting the car at the nearest carpet road. Expect the price will be USD40 to Ella. Driving time between Buttala and Ella is one hour. Kind regards
