Tree Tops Jungle Lodge

Tree Tops Jungle Lodge is a real jungle experience and simple living in harmony with wild nature. The ecolodge situated 10 km southeast of Buttala is carefully fitted into impressive surroundings, the elephant tracks, bush-jungle, mature tall forest, rocky hills as well as the wildlife.Most prominent amongst our wild visitors are the elephants, they can frequently be observed from the lodge itself. The bush and forest around the lodge is connected to a natural part of the Yala jungles in the southeast corner of Sri Lanka, a region probably accommodating more than 500 wild elephants. Mostly during the dry season, herds of elephants moving around in the area, attracted by food and water holes. A few male elephants are resident in the Weliara jungle, from time to time elephant herds are come into the area.

Through simple, camp style living conditions, staying at Tree Tops Jungle Lodge is an extraordinary trip, back to nature. You'll be bathing at a freshwater well, there's no electricity, and meals are cooked native style on wood fire.

The minimal facilities are balanced by spotless service and a staff eager to create great experiences for visitors – be it tasty meals, jungle treks, or wild elephant spotting escorted by local trackers. All excursions are on foot with a 4-man team of local trackers including English speaking (local) naturalist of the lodge.

We do offer a true jungle experience but we are situated in wilderness, not inside a safari park. Observing wild animals is not easy. Tree Tops Jungle Lodge local area is simply remote and wild and sparsely populated and the jungles and forests are part of the greater ecosystem of the Yala National Park. Yet, wildlife might be around and we expect visitors to respect the wild nature of our place and contribute to their own safety, behaving responsible and using basic instincts. Living at an unfenced lodge in an amazing landscape in the really wilds, among wildlife, is the element of adventure at Tree Tops Jungle Lodge.

Our current accommodation option is tented style rooms. Four chalet type canvas lodgings with bathroom and toilet inside the tent, good space for a large double bed and a verandah outside the room with folding chairs and tables.
