It was great to get to know local guides, experience wonderful food and see the national parks. The team here are very helpful and very knowledgeable. We were there for two nights and loved that they tailored the safaris to suit us - for safari 3 and 4 they were recommending other routes and parks to visit so as not...

Everything ran smoothly. The food was delicious and the safaris were expertly guided. It was a professional operation and we sell it to many of our clients. It would help if there was somewhere where guests could go to relax away from their tents, a comfortable large covered area with cushions and seats.

We stayed here in April and loved it!! We had the camp site to ourselves which made it even more special! Our tent was a classic plus and the entrance was huge with a 3 piece suite and little table and fan.

We enjoyed spending some time in the tented safari. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the food was especially good and the wild life was most accommodating. Elephants were seen on each of the safaris we went on.

Stayed for 1 night during our week long trip in Sri Lanka- only wish it had been longer. Excellent service/food/location. Had two game drives- driver and spotter excellent. Made to feel very special on our honeymoon. Especially loved our alfresco breakfast overlooking the national park. Would definitely recommend, and would be keen to visit other mahoora sites
