Through simple, camp-style living conditions, staying at this 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 a 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 the English speaking (local) naturalist of the lodge.

The current accommodation option is tented style rooms. Four chalet type canvas lodgings with bathrooms and toilets inside, enough space for a large double bed, and a veranda outside the room with folding chairs and tables.

The lodge has always wanted to create a different, one-of-a-kind wilderness experience. They provide a rare opportunity to live for a few days at an extremely peaceful location, 10 km from Buttala in a remote bush and forest area of great natural beauty near Yala National Park.

This site does offer a true jungle experience but they are situated in wilderness, not inside a safari park. Observing wild animals is not easy. The 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 responsibly and using basic instincts. Living at an unfenced lodge in an amazing landscape among wildlife is the essence of adventure.

Be kind to the environment and take care of the surroundings.
