Private Tented Safari Camping Experience in Kumana

2 nights/ 3 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 Kumana with its rich wetlands bound by a typically dry forest, is an enriching adventure. 

Home to the iconic Sri Lankan elephant, the bashful sloth bear and the imposing Sri Lankan leopard, Kumana is a beautiful Park that boasts of a diversely rich landscape of animals, bird life and several lagoons. 

The magic of the Park does not end with sunset. Under clear skies and the chorus of nocturnal insects, a campfire and traditional flame torches will set the scene, as you await a memorable evening.  

Prepared on site, a meticulously crafted menu is served with a fine range of beverages. 

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. A tent which will give you comfort in rustic hues of colour, surrounded by wilderness.

-End of Tour-

Living here is an indelible experience. There are few places that one can get up close and personal and enjoy the wilderness in its true pristine form. The elephants trumpeting becomes more like traffic on the street. The campsite is surrounded by a range of birds and regular visits of elephant herds that come to take quick baths, are numerous. The astonishing sunset takes one to a place of complete surrender where living in the wild becomes ecstatic.


Diverse Wildlife of Kumana National Park

The Game drives and living experience is unique in Kumana. You will be struck  by the Park’s diversity in the changing landscape; from stretches of grassland, forest patches to wetlands. The call of birds are a prelude to the mornings which are pumped up by adrenaline surging jeep safaris, for you never know: you may get an all exclusive viewing of the elusive leopard or the ever watchful sloth bear mum with her cubs.

You can get up close and personal in bird watching as Kumana boasts of 255 recorded species of birds.
