An affordable Tented Safari Camp Experience on the borders of Udawalawe National Park 

 

The Location

The Big Game tented safari campsite is set among a flat and spacious bush forest overlooking a man-made reservoir on the eastern boundary of the Udawalawe National Park. Tents are spaciously set up to ensure a great setting and maximum enjoyment of the breath-taking sunset in the bush. There is ample space to relax and unwind and spend the late morning hours or afternoons gazing up at the open sky lying in a hammock.

An early morning drive to the park entrance or an evening drive back to the campsite can be easily made in to a mini safari, based on the client's interest. The drive can take as short a time as 20 minutes, but a slower drive, better to observe the surroundings, will be anywhere between half an hour to 40 minutes. Further, our naturalists carry red beam torches that help detect animals even in the dark especially when entering the park.

Please refer to the map below to identify the exact location of the site.

 

The unique advantages of Big Game Udawalawe

The Big Game campsite in Udawalawe is located in a sizable clearing, and the camp has been set up utilising the space available, while ensuring spaciousness to create a roomy environment for optimal viewing of the natural beauty of the area. The camp is located close to a man-made tank (reservoir), which is visited by many species of birds and other animals, adding to the beauty of the area. There is enough space in the campsite for children and the entire family to have a great time.

The campsite is located in a wilderness area, and elephants may be visible from within the campsite. Although the Udawalawe National Park spans Sri Lanka’s wet and dry zones, the campsite is located in the dry zone, and the flora and fauna are specific to the area. 

Game Drive

We offer a unique game drive, and we ensure that our drivers and naturalists are experts and are knowledgeable in the area and the wildlife that could be found in the area.

There is about 21km between the entrance of the park and our campsite. 15km of this traces the boundaries of Udawalawe National park, and offers you a good chance to see wildlife that lives near the boundaries of the park. The remaining 6km takes you through semi-wilderness areas or pastoral villages.

Clients staying in hotels stand to save 3 to 4 hours, depending on their location. Clients do, however, have the option of going back to have an exquisite lunch, and return in time for an evening safari.

Our safari packages

 

We are also equipped to provide customised services for clients (Family safaris, honeymoon safaris, photography safaris etc.).

All this can be arranged at a nominal additional charge.

Though the tents are set up far away from local villages, bear in mind that this area is very quiet, so the distant sound of a radio or temple chant may sometimes carry to the campsite. These occurrences are rare but we would like to keep our customers informed in case such situations arise.

“A must do!”

We stayed for only one night and did two half day safari's and cannot speak highly enough of the experience. The service was amazing, and every one of our needs met promptly. Great tents - more like glamping than camping. There was a lovely bonfire in the evening complete with marshmallows which made for happy kids.

We are located within a 30-minute drive to the park entrance and just 200m away from its boundaries. The campsite, located in a semi-wilderness area overlooking a small lake, is frequently visited by wild elephants.
