Day Trips, Tours and Excursions from Tree Tops Jungle Lodge, Buttala

Tree Tops Jungle Lodge is a real jungle experience and simple living in harmony with wild nature Completely off the standard beaten track, the lodge is a special and non-touristic place to stay and is about location and experience rather than just another accommodation option. Come for living and walking with nature in the Weliara jungles, an isolated wilderness in the remote southeast Sri Lanka. The Weliara jungle is hidden between Yala National Park and the Rahat Kanda mountains-a 20 km steep ridge of rocky hills, separating civilization from wilderness.

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.
