My husband and I visited Master Campers for our one year anniversary. For that we were willing to splurge a bit and I feel we got our money's worth. The airport transfer was a bit expensive but we didn't have to worry about finding the place. We were taken directly to the camp and given some time to rest. I don't know what other people think of the term luxury so fair warning, these tents are nice albeit basic. It is still a tent and is subject to nature. It is so peaceful in their camp and the food was excellent!!! They provided a seven course meal which kept me stuffed for the whole day. We spent time browsing the book in our room about local birds which proved very handy when we left for safari.

We did one afternoon safari and one morning which was the perfect amount of time for us. Udawalawe is still my favorite national park outside of Masaimara in Kenya. The open fields give you a great view of the surrounding area. You come around corners and find bunches of elephants. The park was not full of cars so you could be alone with the animals (to achieve this I would suggest going on a week day). Our jeep ended up breaking down and when we were picked up, the driver had seen two leopards just that morning. By deciphering monkey calls, they realized the leopard was about 2.5km away. We raced to the area and it ran across our path. We got to watch it for some time, absolutely magnificent. We would not have been able to achieve that without the guide.

Definitely recommend if you have the money!

Comfortable tents with excellent en-suite facilities. Great welcome. Comfortable vehicles for afternoon and morning safaris. Knowledgeable guides. Interesting location for bird watching. Dinner was provided in an area near the tents with lovely lights and a blazing fire. Excellent food.

Room Tip: Tents seem to be booked from the front 2 working back, so book early for front tents with views.

We had an amazing stay at Master Campers. From arrival, we were very well looked after and the service was incredible. Roy was the most amazing guide...the things he could spot from so far away was amazing! We also found out he was the very talented chef that prepared our delicious meals - dining out on delicious food under the stars was an amazing experience. The accommodation was very luxurious and the camp was hidden away which meant it was very peaceful and quiet. An amazing experience that I would definitely recommend!

Staying at Master Campers gave us the opportunity to see nature in the wild and camp by a lake....I must say Roy, the guide and cook and general fount of information was extraordinary and made our trip....he knew so much about the animals .....he was so enthusiastic as well about the Park and the animals and especially the bird life, I can't praise him enough. Also, he is the Cook and he can do a very good curry and he has a big smile as well....this National Park was stunning ....if you like wild life and all the unexpected things that a tour through such a park produces...I want to go back to Sri Lanka.

Room Tip: all tents access the lake
