My boyfriend and myself stayed for three nights at the camp and it was just a great experience. We did every day a safari tour with an official guide or only with the super kind drivers from the camp site. In both ways, we enjoyed ourselves a lot and had the opportunity to see the diverse kind of the animal...

It was our first time in Sri Lanka and our very first safari camping experience in Asia. My friends and i enjoyed the luxury and pampering offered by Ruhunu. The tents were great and so was the campsite. The safaris were a beautiful experience. Our driver guide bodi was a good spotter and spotted even the smallest birds and animals....

Me and my friends enjoyed the luxurious pampering offered by Ruhunu Safari and it was definitely the highlight of our Srilankan tour. We all were treated like kings and queens. Stephan (Mr. Big) made sure we were well treated and looked after. The hospitality standards were beyond our expectation. The food was the best Srilankan food we've had in Sri...

We stayed two nights at the end of February and it was a truly memorable experience. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left our expectations were exceeded! The staff were all fantastic, incredibly attentive and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room was beautiful, clean and very spacious. It's camping but on another level. The...

We were promised an amazing experience and it didn't disappoint. Our first experience of safari 'glamping' was a huge success. The accommodation was splendid, tents were spacious, well equipped (even aircon for the feeble) with comfortable beds and a shower under the stars. With staff ever on hand with the perfect drink from pre-safari cups of tea at 4am to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We pitch safari camps at two of the most famous wildlife National Parks in Sri Lanka Udawalawe & Yala National Parks - offering a great plethora of wildlife with Udawalawe bounded by the serrated mountains of Sabaragamuwa & Yala bounded on one side by the Ocean. These safari camps are designed to help a vacationer traverse the amazing landscapes referred as Tented Safari Camping in National Parks with the least hustle possible and all popular spotting locations are within easy reach, which is far better than a grueling trudge from the hotel in the morning with the crowds at the entrance. ... more   less
