When my friends suggested we go camping for the long weekend in October 2012, I was more than a little anxious. Some of the inquiries about the camping trip from my friends, included air conditioning and swimming pools.
It took more than a dozen emails to paint a picture of what to expect.
After several visits to BBC weather [as the rainy season was setting in] and checking every minute detail we were set to go.
From the moment we arrived Isuru and and his team looked into every detail.
The tents and bedding was comfortable. Finding flush toilets in the wild was a luxury.
The setting of the camp site next to Walawe river was picturesque.
The meals were definitely of gourmet standard, with a five course dinner the first night. The second night was a barbeque, which had grilled fish, prawns, chicken and a range of vegetarian dishes to keep the "vegetarians" satisfied.
We had 4 Safari's over the 2 days and we saw an assortment of bird life and superb elephant sightings complete with the new borns. Personally I thought that our encounter with a pack of Jackals [6-7] on a lesser used road was a rare one.
Many thanks to Isuru from Master Campers for the excellent safari's and
Chef Roy for the gourmet cuisine and my intrepid fellow campers and friends for enduring the vagaries of camping in the wild.
