1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Our stay was an absolute dream from start to finish. Kamal and the team made us feel so welcome and the food was superb. The most memorable part has to be the wildlife we saw. At the camp, and on our walks, we saw so many different birds as well as lizards, snakes and giant squirrels! And the team are very knowledgable about birds in particular. We did three safari trips in to the National Park and were lucky enough to see leopards as well as elephants, water buffalo, crocodiles, eagles, wild boar, mongoose and so much more.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


If you are looking for a unique, peaceful, wonderful place where you can be totally immersed in nature then this is the place for you. But if you are looking for nightlife and you can't live without a hot shower then it's probably not for you.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes absolutely.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Unforgettable. A truly special place, we are so grateful to have experienced the accommodation and the wonderful team. Thank you!

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

- ) This is a private Sri Lankan ecotourism venture that grew up as a pioneering grass root project since year 2001. A step by step project founded on the vision to use ecotourism as a way forward for the local community and environment by creating a great, authentic, nature and service based tourism experience. Utilizing tourism as a tool to conserve the environment by creating new nature based jobs. Simply by using the nature in a constructive Ė not destructive way in the local area which is a wilderness, forest as well as slash and burn cultivation area north of the Yala National Park.

- ) The camp is situated in a border area between protected areas and human habitation as well as farming areas. It means the local area also is a place to witness village-life in remote rural areas. By inviting tourists to come and live with the jungle-lodge team in the wilderness itís an aim to create awareness amongst the local community as well as political and administrative authorities about the important value of the natural environment outside the Yala National Park itself. We do not follow any blue print project implementation program and we are economically 100% depending on the arrival of visitors. But we are always working to use our influence and network so as to preserve this unique piece of nature from the threat of destruction. Preserving wild, natural habitats and forests outside the national park is the most important way to solve the 'human-elephant conflict', the main threat to the Sri Lankan elephant population.

- ) Our 25 acres private land camp property has been allowed to grow wild to be an integrated and natural part of our wild environment surroundings. We work under a minimalistic land-use concept, self-imposed restriction thatís about avoiding any hotel-like development and expansion. That is the the background for the camp concept. A set up which is preserved as a small and special lodge and with only 3 accommodation units. Thatís the special recipe conserving the camp as an original and pure jungle experience.

People

- ) All staff members are recruited from the local area. They have been trained and educated for tourism by the camp management. The tourism schooling in this particular local community is done with great care and consciousness of using the natural sense of hospitality found in this remote Sri Lankan area.

- ) We consider sustainable small scale nature based tourism an important contribution to the environmental threats to the area and work to build awareness of nature tourism as a tool to use the local environment in a constructive way as an alternative to using nature in destructive ways.

-) Small scale responsible tourism is generating a new type of income in the local community and we have proven this is a different way to use the local environment in a positive way compared to traditional land and forest use. At the same time the management depend on the local knowledge of the jungle which the local staff team possess.

-) We are conscious about using simple technology only as it can be handled, repaired and managed by the local staff.
