We did a fair share of travelling around Sri Lanka in January. This was the highlight of our trip.
The food was fantastic and the guides / managers were worth every penny we spent. Indyka was our host and he was exceptional. His passion for the wild is second to none. The owners of this campsite are passionate photographers/wildlife enthusiasts as well and showed us some of their pictures which were unbelievable. They were there as well and it was great to meet them.
The tents are big and I was initially worried about camping. My husband convinced me to try this out and I am so glad I did. Big comfortable bed and the loo's were great. That was my biggest concern. It has a flush and unlike the chemical toilets we used when travelling in India, this is an actual toilet. Showers were amazing. Open to the sky with great high pressure.
The fans at night helped us fall asleep and the bonfire was also fantastic. Get them to have it for you if you are going to camp. Its an amazing experience. Great stories over some wine and the tasty snacks before dinner was something we will remember for a lifetime.
I would recommend these guys any day. Their staff at camp went out of their way to do anything we requested and their whole team has a passion that far exceeds any lodge/campsite we have stayed at before.
We saw 2 leopards in our 2 night stay and many elephants, birds, crocodiles, deer, peacock and wild pigs. We even saw some Jackals. It was a great trip and we hope to come back soon to go after the only animal we couldn't see, the bear !
