Mahoora Elite Wilpattu

Wilpattu All-inclusive Private Tented Safari Camp Experience

Live in an intimate, 8-acre private wildlife sanctuary which combines the wilderness of a dry zone forest with modern-day comforts. Mahoora Elite in Wilpattu is set where elephants, jungle cats and barking deer roam nearby, and a collector’s edition of birds and butterflies gather by the camp’s lake which is surrounded by a bush forest. Fall asleep in Sri Lanka’s Largest Safari Tent with forest stars lining the skies, and wake up to a private sunrise and a cup of tea in a secluded patch of forest life.

A bespoke wildlife experience immersed in modern-day charm awaits you at Mahoora Tented Safari Camps Wilpattu, at one of Sri Lanka’s most iconic wildlife zones bordering the Wilpattu National Park.

Unique Advantages of Mahoora Elite – Wilpattu



Mahoora Wilpattu is visited by elephants and has a very rich birdlife. It’s located closer to the southern boundary of Wilpattu National Park, adjoining a lake, and is surrounded by a bush forest. Enjoy alfresco meals near the lake, surrounded by the serenity of nature.

Our safari camp is situated on the eastern boundary of a beautiful lake in close proximity to Wilpattu National Park. It neighbors a village with local residents to the west, and there are farmlands to the north and south. While the surroundings are generally quiet, you may occasionally hear the sounds of a religious ceremony or a local gathering from a distance, especially if loudspeakers are being used. This is part of the local culture, and we appreciate your understanding. The camp has a supply of earplugs available upon request in such situations.

Proximity Advantage

The distance between the entrance of the Park and the campsite is a mere 7km, and takes only 5 to 10 minutes to get there. As this campsite is located just bordering a lake closer to the Park’s boundary, it feels more like living inside the park. There is plenty of wildlife within the campsite wandering across from the Park as well.

Bespoke Safaris

We can also provide customised services for clients, such as a family safari, child safari, honeymoon safari, photography safari, walking safari etc.


Tents are spread out in order to ensure complete privacy and a true wilderness setting.

Unique Hospitality

The complete Mahoora experience with our professional team is a unique and holistic experience. Safari jeeps, expert game drivers, professional naturalists,
snacks / beverages / water / tea
& coffee are some that make this experience special. This is unlikely to be offered by traditional hotels as their area of expertise is very different.

Full Day Safari Option

If there is a full day Wilpattu safari, we are able to provide a complete hot lunch served inside the Park without returning to the campsite. This saves time and energy spent on travelling to the camp for lunch. However, clients have the option to go back for their meal and return for the evening safari after enjoying an exquisite lunch back at camp.

Chena Experience

There are a few “chena” plots scattered around the areas near the Mahoora campsites. Chena is the local term for traditional slash and burn cultivation used for seasonal crops. You have the option of visiting these sites during nature walks or night walks, and gain better understanding of rural Sri Lanka.
