Mahoora Tented Safari Camp Wilpattu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 15, 2012

A highlight of our recent 3 week trip touring Sri Lanka was the safari at Wilpattu. Our driver and two guides were so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the flora and fauna. We spotted 7 Leopards in just 24 hours, as well as sloth bears, jackals, monkeys,hares, deer and many different species of bird. The camp-site was perfect. Our tent was very comfortable (glamping rather than camping really). The team back at the camp-site were all welcoming and warm. Food was excellent and our evening sitting under the stars, with the camp-site illuminated by flaming torches, sipping gin and tonics while our barbecue was prepared was magical. FANTASTIC!!

I camped in Wilpattu with some family members and the experience was wonderful. This was more like a classy hotel in the midst of the jungle and we got pampered while still enjoying being close to nature. The team was extremely helpful, and were also very knowledgable. Even a heavy shower did not affect our stay at all, and it gave a nice dimension to the time spent there. The food was simply superb, and full marks for the presentation. Being inside the park gave us the early headstarts we needed for the runs, and gave us a bit of extra late viewing time. Attached toilets make a major difference and a lot of thought has gone into little details which make wildlife a special experience.Being a widely travelled nature lover, i would certainly highly recommend this experience to one and all.:

It was an amazing moment, and the team was not only very knowledgeable, but also very friendly. The food was up to the standards of a five stars hotel, amazingly tasty. The facilities clean and the location dreamlike! All I can say is GO
