    Camping experience near a national park is very special. staff is very kind and has a lot of knowledge of the surrounding nature. BBQ diner is great!

    The safari they offer is pretty expensive. We did one on our own which was great.

    Very nice atmosphere in candlelight dinner.

    Apparently same food every evening in all Big Game resorts? Not much activities in the evening. Too dark in tent to read, wifi not working in the morning.

    It was a fun experience glamping in Sri Lanka. The tents are nice, but could do with some brighter lighting. Comfy beds, working showers etc. Would have been nice to have mosquito nets as we got one or two bites. The BBQ dinner was pleasant - 3 courses, but variable quality (some got quite nice meat, others mostly bones!), and there was very little variety of drinks available - it would have been nice to have a glass of wine. We booked a morning safari and were sent off with a packed breakfast. There was much focus on getting our money off us as we arrived and less on the welcome than we found anywhere else on our travels.

    Suggestions to improve - signpost the place, or ensure phone is answered when people ring for directions. Have some info sheets available about the birds and wildlife you might see - perhaps offer guided walks of the area. Serve cocktails before dinner - a great way to get the guests chatting and relaxing - instead we found we had to walk a longish distance to ask for beers - no other choice was offered. Overall quite pricey for the experience.

    Fabulous setting with the campfire and all of the oil lamps to guide your way to the tent. The BBQ dinner was delicious and the tent itself was very comfortable.

    Being in the jungle, expect to have some insect visitors near your tent but the staff are on call and ready to help anytime. Drinks with dinner are very expensive.
