Established in 2009, we run premium safaris in Yala National Park which has the highest concentration of leopards per square kilometre More in the world & Udawalawe National Park which has Sri Lanka's largest population of Asian elephants.

We also offer our guests a number of other exciting tours such as birding at Bundala National Park, an internationally important wintering ground for migratory water birds and famed for its large flocks of flamingoes. Our luxury tented camp surrounded by lush tropical jungle provides our guests with an hotel standard of accommodation . The cuisine is a combination of European & Sri Lankan dishes from locally grown organic crops. Our guest experience evokes a bygone age combining luxury & adventure. Less
