Our origin

Mahoora, Sri Lanka's true pioneers in elite tented safaris and wildlife tours, comes under the umbrella of Eco Team (Pvt) Ltd's unique portfolio of products.

Creating the Mahoora Legend…

As the pioneers of this field in Sri Lanka since its inception in 1998, our team is the most experienced.

For us, this is not a job, it is a passion! Your enjoyment is our primary concern, and we will willingly go that extra mile for you.

Being a group of award-winning and like-minded people with a true spirit for nature and adventure, we have a wealth of knowledge at our disposal. Through many seasons of operating adventure and nature excursions, we know where all the exciting and unusual attractions are.

Mahoora Naturalists: where vocation is considered a vacation

The Mahoora camps are designed to inspire and captivate clients with unique experiences out in the wild while educating them on the inner workings of their natural surroundings.

We have assembled an impressive team of dedicated resident naturalists and guides who are committed to providing visitors with the most unforgettable learning experience in the wild. With decades of experience and an undying passion for nature under their belts, they ensure that your brief spell in the arms of nature is both memorable and eye-opening.

Every member of the team has lived and breathed Sri Lankan wildlife while armed with a degree or a diploma connected to the field. Their vast knowledge in all aspects of nature and more specifically the locations you visit on our tours will ensure that you get all the best information on the various exotic species of flora and fauna you encounter.

From the majestic leopards that roam the national parks to the endemic birds that flock to the sanctuaries, they have the expert facts on all things wild. You can add to that their deep understanding of the history, culture and terrain of the areas you visit and you have the complete package.

Our team of naturalists will ensure you see the best of Sri Lanka’s highlights and learn all there is to know about them in the process.
