Mahoora Tented Safari Camps
Near Yala National Park | Other
Amongst its many benefits, Sri Lanka is blessed with a high concentration of excellent National Parks; while the smaller ones are home to specific rare species, the larger parks offer numerous opportunities to observe some of the world's healthiest leopard and Asian elephant populations, amongst myriad smaller mammal, bird and reptile species.
This is thrilling enough from the roof of a jeep, but imagine experiencing Sri Lanka's wilderness from your very own safari camp. Expertly hosted and supervised by experienced rangers, eco-camping in Sri Lanka is one of those life adventures that move you with every detail - from the sheer number of stars visible at night, to the graciousness of both your official hosts and the dwindling indigenous tribes who still inhabit the forests.
Mahoora Elite Camping
Each carefully candlelit, carpeted safari tent has its own attached shower room with hot water (& freshly laundered towels of course), comfortable beds, folding armchairs... the list continues into things you might not be used to in a tent - fruit baskets, for example, and a separate living ‘room’ complete with a sofa & coffee table. If you're used to luxury camping, this will more than meet your expectations, with the added attraction of being in the centre of some of the most spectacular wilderness that's accessible to - well, campers. Once you factor in the on-site naturalist, well stocked bar (all drinks are included) and multi-course dinners, this becomes a very tempting option indeed.
Mahoora Explorer Camping
If you enjoy an adventure and love getting back to nature, the Explorer set-up will be more than enough for you. Everything's fully set up when you arrive and the camp includes safari time in a small group with experienced guides and trackers. Facilities include comfortable beds and an en-suite shower room with hot water. Guests enjoy the blazing campfire at dusk, especially when combined with unlimited drinks (with meals) and excellent food from the top chef who accompanies each trip.
We SayThis is the ultimate safari experience - getting you as close to wildlife as anyone should wish to sleep!
