All-inclusive Value Additions & Activities > Village Walk & Lake Bath

Take the road less travelled by tourists and often travelled by locals, and explore a quaint little village in Katupathwewa. Meet the locals, peek into their humble abodes and even share a cup of tea with them! You will surely enjoy an immersive rural village experience in Wilpattu here, before heading towards the scenic Katupathwewa Lake. Filled with birdlife, the sunlit lake waters is the ideal respite on a hot day! Cool off with a swim or sit by the banks and watch for eagles, owls and water birds with a cold drink from our portable cooler. Afterwards, head back to camp for a hearty lunch.

Evocative landscapes, expressive skies, and curious wildlife is a muse like no other. Retreat into your canvas amidst the quiet tranquillity of nature, and we will provide you with the rest – an easel, paint, paper and pencils.

All-inclusive Value Additions & Activities > Photography

Wild boars rolling in cold mud, leopards sunbathing on black rocks, the kinetic blur of a scared spotted deer, elephants ambling across from you… it’s a moment destined to be on film, and we make sure you get that perfect shot every time.

The Mahoora Jeep

  • Exclusive, comfortable and a specially modified jeep that is designed having the photographer in mind.
  • The jeep has 3 lines of elevated seats fitted into an extended body, making height better for that perfect shot as well as providing comfortable leg space for those long waits.
  • The fully opened front (not covered by a glass) is a definite advantage with the steel bar on the hood that can hold your bean bag.
  • Side bars are placed strategically to not obstruct game view, with the added advantage of fixing your monopod on to it.

The Mahoora Experts

  • We provide a specialist game driver, with years of safari driving experience, previously booked by numerous world famous photographers.
  • We also provide a professional naturalist who will add value to your photography exploits by spotting the “little details” and tailor the safari based on your preferences.

All-inclusive Value Additions & Activities > Bluetooth Films

Ask our staff about our Bluetooth Movie Night! We’re happy to set you up with a screen, bean bags and special Bluetooth Headsets for you to kick back with a movie on full volume without disturbing other guests.
