After reading the many excellent reviews on trip advisor and exchanging several helpful emails with Uditha we decided to book two nights luxury camping with Master Campers as well as booking a great company driver, Lalitha, for the duration of our stay in Sri Lanka. In the end the majority of our trip was taken care of by Master Campers and I can safely say I have never been so well looked after on holiday, nothing was ever too much hassle and every part of the experience had been carefully thought out to ensure maximum happiness!
On arrival to the camp we were met with cool drinks and warm smiles. The camp is in an idyllic location, situated next to a beautiful river surrounded by tall trees creating welcome shade. Our tent was spacious, comfortable and very far from your average two man tent! We were able to have a good nights sleep under fresh linen and a shower is available, although we found washing in the river to be more refreshing than any shower!
The food throughout our stay was fantastic. Roy is a great chef who provided us with delicious meals. During the day food was served next to the river, a perfect spot to enjoy the wide variety of great food surrounded by stunning natural beauty and a cheeky monkey or two :-) Evening meals were served in camp, which had been lit up with twinkling lamps and an impressive fire.
We went on three safaris during our stay and saw a huge range of animals and birds. The staff were very knowledgeable and experienced and we felt in very safe hands at all times. To name a few we saw elephants, crocs, spotted deer, monkeys, water buffalo and many beautiful birds. The highlight for me was seeing so many elephants, including some very very cute babies. The park itself is a beautiful place and the stunning scenery combined with the animals makes it an unforgettable experience.
For the times that your not on safari or eating tasty food the camp is a great place to relax. By the river there is a hammock to lay in and spot the monkeys or you can swim in the cool clear water. An amazing moment was finishing our breakfast by the river and a small family of elephants appeared from the trees on the other side of the river drink, I can't think of anywhere else where elephants join you as you sit drinking your cup of tea!
Master Campers really have perfected creating a unique and magical experience for its visitors and I cannot recommend them more highly. Master Campers made our trip to Sri Lanka unforgettable. Don't hesitate for moment to book!
