I enjoyed this camp VERY much....it reminded me of my many safaris in Africa. My tent was fine and comfortable with two fans to help w/heat. Food WAS AMAZING!! Not only plentiful, delicious......but so attractively served that I took photos of almost every dish served....More
It is not often that I write a review but I feel compelled to do so after the disappointing experience at the Mahoora Tented Safari Camp and visit to Wilpattu. I fully agree with the review posted by Eurofolk from Belgium a few weeks ago....More
So I had to look back at their website to remind me what they promised!!! Luxury camping with 5 star dining? So it is a tent so I guess if you compare the experience to camping on a blow up bed and using communal showers...More
It's rare that I'll give a property just three stars, but on this occasion Mahoora didn't fully deliver the goods for a first safari experience in Sri Lanka. Hence a longer review.
For those who want the executive summary: good location and facilities, let down...More

Dear Elizabeth Brookes,
Apologize for the delay in reply, we do have a lake next to our Wilpattu campsite and also on the way to the safari, but as this is a drought season we do not have water in the lake next to our campsite. you could still see and experience the wilderness in our camp setting.
However, We have the possibility to arrange a coffee session during the safari but it is advised that you don’t get into the lake as we can’t make sure about the cleanness and safety.
We do have our local Sri Lankan made coffee, ground coffee if preferred and also Nescafe can be provided.
Please let us know your preference then we could arrange it accordingly.”
