Authentic Jungle experience and simple living amidst the nature at Tree Tops Jungle Lodge
Tree Tops Jungle Lodge is a real jungle experience and simple living in harmony with wild nature. The ecolodge situated 10 km southeast of Buttala is carefully fitted into impressive surroundings, the elephant tracks, bush-jungle, mature tall forest, rocky hills as well as the wildlife.
Completely off the standard beaten track, the lodge is a special and non-touristic place to stay and is about location and experience rather than just another accommodation option. Come for living and walking with nature in the Weliara jungles, an isolated wilderness in the remote southeast Sri Lanka. The Weliara jungle is hidden between Yala National Park and the Rahat Kanda mountains – a 20 km steep ridge of rocky hills, separating civilization from wilderness.

Accommodation at Tree Tops Jungle Lodge
At Tree Tops Jungle Lodge, accommodation option is tented style canvas rooms. Four chalet type canvas lodgings with bathroom and toilet inside the tent, good space for a large double bed and a verandah outside the room with folding chairs and tables.
Through simple, camp style living conditions, staying at Tree Tops Jungle Lodge is an extraordinary trip, back to nature.  Without electricity or other modern amenities and meals are mainly native curry style cooked on gas or traditional wood fire in the central mud-hud kitchen and restaurant. 

Location of Tree Tops Jungle Lodge, a journey back to nature
Travelling from Buttala to the lodge you will have to access the lodge via a local dirt track into the jungle. At this point you'll be leaving civilization, then discovering an area of great natural beauty and finally ending up as a guest in elephant country.

Tree Tops Jungle Lodge is situated in Sri Lanka's remote southeastern Yala wilderness, 8 km north of the boundary of the island's largest protected area complex – the Yala National Park. The jungle surrounding the lodge is connected to the National Park and is natural habitat for the whole range of wild animals found in neighbouring Yala and 163 species of birds are recorded in the area.

Dining at Tree Tops Jungle Lodge
The menu is native style and all meals are completely freshly made, vegetarian and village based Sri Lankan food.

Typically breakfast is served 7.30am - 8am before or after a morning walk

Lunch is served early afternoon about 1.30pm and Dinner: between 8.00 - 9.00 pm. 

It's all flexible and depending on walking tours and adapted according to the individual preferences of the guests. 
Meals are served in the thatched mud-hut restaurant and this is also a central place where you can spend your time enjoying the jungle views and socialize with other guests as well as the staff team.

Lunch and dinner

Wild Visitors
Most prominent amongst our wild visitors are the elephants, they can frequently be observed from the lodge itself. The bush and forest around the lodge is connected to a natural part of the Yala jungles in the southeast corner of Sri Lanka, a region probably accommodating more than 500 wild elephants. Mostly during the dry season, herds of elephants moving around in the area, attracted by food and water holes. A few male elephants are resident in the Weliara jungle, from time to time elephant herds are come into the area.

A night in the Elephant country
Night in the jungle is an experience of darkness and defining sounds of wilderness. Elephants frequently visit the lodge premises at night and sometimes even before the daylight fades around 6 – 7 pm. They can be heard or seen near the lodge at night, and seen as dark shadows gliding over the landscape when the moon is full. When elephants pass by they are usually very silent but occasionally they are heard breaking branches or trumpeting. This is nightlife at Tree Tops Jungle Lodge. An experience of a lifetime.

Tree Tops Jungle Lodge offer a true jungle experience but we are situated in wilderness, not inside a safari park. Observing wild animals is not easy. Tree Tops Jungle Lodge 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 responsible and using basic instincts. Living at an unfenced lodge in an amazing landscape in the really wilds, among wildlife, is the element of adventure at Tree Tops Jungle Lodge.

Locally recruited staff team and night watchers are perfect guards and very experienced 'jungle experts', highly skilled in using eyes and ears for interpretation of the signs of nature.
