The area has an abundance of natural beauty with rare species of wildlife and the team offer comprehensive guided nature trails throughout the forest. Species include Sri Lankan leopards, land monitors, black napped hares, wild boar, elephants, deer, palm squirrels, giant squirrels, and butterflies. During the correct season, glampers can experience chena farm tours and learn about cultivation. Other opportunities include making curd in the local village, lake fishing tours, onsite Sri Lankan curry cooking demonstrations, and the opportunity to spend half a day in the local village with a family and experience daily life before sharing a traditional lunch. The nearby towns of Tissamaharama, Sithulpawwa, Kirinda, and Katharagama have beautiful temples and glampers can enjoy learning about the rituals, beliefs and cultural practices in Southern Sri Lanka, admiring the architecture and stunning paintings these buildings share.
