Camping in Sri Lanka
Safari Camp Holiday in Sri Lanka allows you to get up-close & personal with Nature, Observe Wilderness in all its beauty, splendour and complexities. Sri Lanka which was described by Marco Polo as the most beautiful island in the world – is an increasingly popular destination for those seeking a holiday away from the usual tourist circuit.
Known as the island of serendipity, it offers a wide variety of sights, terrain and accommodation. If you are an adventure lover, Sri Lanka offers hill country plantation estates to jungles, rainforests to tree houses alongside rapid rivers where you can choose your abode. Go in search of wild elephants and eagles, or adopt the bygone community life of the traditional Veddah villagers on an eco estate.
You will never be far away from the beautiful countryside, wildlife, indigenous birds and plants. A car and driver is the sensible way to get around the island but mountain bikes, train journeys, white water rafting, elephant rides and kayaking, all add to the fun of the trip. Yoga and Ayurveda are alternatives for the calmer adventurist.
They have an unmatched range of itineraries. At the end of the day, you can retire to a boutique villa on the beach, colonial bungalow on a working pineapple or mahogany plantation or a small eco village or tree house that offers a holiday sanctuary sympathetic to the beautiful and un-spoilt natural environment of the island. You can combine adventure with luxury if that is your choice while the choices remain endless and exciting.

We at Lakpura Travels provide Camping Safaris to all National Parks and Nature Reserves in Sri Lanka. You can have an “experience of a life time” by selecting from our assortment of tours which consists of one day Safari trips to longer Camping Safari Tours.
We also offer a wide range of related options connected to camping such as observing or studying fauna or flora in various types of forests, bird watching or butterfly watching, and even observing and interacting with the indigenous people (Veddha’s) of Sri Lanka.
One of the more obvious advantages of being on a camping safari is being able to immerse yourself in a 24-hour cycle of eating, sleeping, showering, walking around (campsite only!) within the park itself. Campers can be a part of the entire natural and wild experience. Having facilities at camp to fall back on – whether for relaxation, freshening up or having a meal – makes it all more enjoyable so that rather than always administering to that pressing urge to chase after nature you have the time and the scope to let it come to you.
Another important perk, is that when out on safari you can reap the rewards of having highly exclusive access to the parks’ hotspots during the best times of the day. Good areas for gameviewing and scenery are often located well inside the parks and are best seen at dawn and dusk. With the sun low in the sky, cool temperatures bring many more animals out into the open and the softer light makes every piece of scenery that much more colourful. Due to restrictions placed on day-time visitors, you can take full advantage of your close proximity to these places by getting the best out of them before the sun gets too high and others arrive or as it goes down when they leave.
