The excitement starts during the journey to get the campsite at Gal Oya an exciting Safari jeep ride that takes you right off the beaten track! The camp itself is in the vicinity of the park office buildings, overlooking a paddy field (with many ‘watch-out' tree-houses used to protect the paddy from roaming elephants). It is also close to Mt. Rathugala, which used to be one of the main dwellings for the indigenous ‘veddha' people.
The camp is located 1 ½ km from the Gal Oya River itself. Forget any ideas about cramped tents and sitting on the ground for mealtimes – this is camping in style! The site is set up prior to your arrival, with everything from the kitchen sink, chairs and tables, toilets, showers and cold beer being transported in. In the evening you can enjoy a hearty barbecue meal in a magical setting – the whole area is lit up with traditional flame torches and a roaring campfire. So sit back, relax and let our experienced staff cater to your every need.
