1 Night/ 2 Days

A distinctively rustic and unscripted experience, living immersed in Sri Lankan wildlife - is what you can expect with Explorer by Mahoora, across the country inside the National Parks and Nature Reserves. Our Private Tented Safari Camp in Bundala.

The campsite at Bundala brims with adventure: skirting the back of the camp, the sandy white beach beckons you a mere 100 metres away, whilst the front boasts of the lagoon. A wetland, Bundala has been recognised as a Ramsar site given the rich biodiversity of this forest and is home to numerous varieties of birds and provided a temporary stop for migratory birds seeking warmer climes during the winter. Surrounded by palm trees, shrubs and a forest that prizes its roaming residents, the Explorer by Mahoora Camp in Bundala promises a fine adventure.

In the midst of wilderness, some indulgence cannot be a sin: take your seat on the beach and snuggle your feet in the white silky sands that fringe the tranquil lagoon, while we take you on a culinary journey. Prepared on site, a meticulously crafted menu, showcasing international and local cuisine and a variety of local fruit, is served with a fine range of beverages. With the flames of traditional torches to add to the star-lit night, you are set to enjoy a pleasant evening.

Our dedication to detail extends to Explorer by Mahoora accommodation, with a spacious tent ((15.6’x8’) serviced with a living area, bedroom and an en-suite bathroom, along with a private veranda/porch outside the tent.
