Tree Tops Jungle Lodge is refreshingly remote. Immersed in carefully preserved forest, this bijou eco-lodge is just 6km from Yala’s northern boundary, ringed by an awesome landscape of rocky hills and placid lakes. The only distractions from the pindrop-peaceful surroundings are the chirruping of crickets, the exotic birdsong, and the gentle ripping of foliage as wildlife feeds only steps from the camp.
Tree Tops Jungle Lodge is located amidst farmland and protected forest, 6km from the northern boundary of Yala National Park in southeast Sri Lanka. It’s close to the villages of Buttala and Okkampitiya, and a 6-hour drive from Colombo airport.
The 3 tented rooms are surprisingly comfy. Custom-made in Sri Lanka, they’re elevated on flood-proof platforms a foot above the ground and separated from one another by palm-thatched screens. To the front of each tent is a sand-floored terrace furnished with a table and chairs. Fly screens are fitted to the ‘doors’ and ‘windows’, and blinds roll down for privacy.
