So much potential!
service, novelty, good organised game drives
We are a little bit spoiled since we have done a lot of safaris in Africa, so it was possibly hard for Mahoora to compete, but I thought this was very, very overpriced. We booked an all-inclusive rate (game drives, food, alcohol, accommo), but were told at dinner that the rate only included one bottle of wine. This was very unclear in the pre-booking information and given the rate we paid was quite a surprise! The food was mediocre, though the staff did an amazing job serving us all in the a massive downpour. The accommodation was tiny though very clean and we were completely dry despite the monsoon. It would be a great experience for a first-time safari goer, but I just can't get past the value for money aspect. It comes up quite short.

Perfect stay
Location, goof service and a very competent guide
Perfect place and stay. We had two very good tours in the park and were all found of our guides comprehensive knowledge on the unique nature we saw. We were lucky to see many different mammals and birds (more than 30).

Great Service, Poor Location
Service, Dinner
The Mahoora tented safari provides great service but is let down by poor camp location. Our camp location was right next to, but not inside, Udawalawe National Park. Although it was right next to the park it was located some 60 minute drive from the camp entrance. Electric fences separated the camp from the Park, so there was little chance of wildlife coming within the park or us seeing anything from the camp itself. It was also next to a village and not far from a construction site, and so did not feel particularly remote. Since the main purpose of a safari camp is to be immediately close to wildlife, it seemed a bit pointless to us to camp so far away. We could have chosen anywhere to stay within a 60 minute drive to the Park entrance and would have had the same safari experience. I understand that the camp location moves from time to time, and that their other locations are usually within 15 minutes to the park entrance. However, in all these cases, why bother camping when you can have a nice hotel room within 15 minutes of the park entrance. If the camp was somewhere remote and in-nature, then there would have been useful. The campsite itself was dry, dusty and suffered from very strong winds. During the daytime the heat was oppressive at 35C. I know that it is not their fault about the weather, but if we had been staying in a hotel instead of a camp then we could easily have retreated inside until the heat and wind subsided. Having said that, there were some positives which helped justify the additional expense: Our jeep safari was very personal, in that we did not share the jeep with any other guests. Our jeep was also better provided with refreshments and snacks than other jeeps I saw within the safari park The evening dinner under firelight and next to a bonfire was very romantic. Food was better than average but not spectacular. All-inclusive means it is all inclusive of alcoholic beverages, which made the evening meal even more romantic

A great experience. We were spoilt by the staff
Location, experience, friendly staff
We spent 2 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed the site. The tents were great fun and all of the staff went out of their way to ensure we had a great time. The food was good, and the safari was breath taking. I would highly recommend staying here.

Wonderful access to Udawalawe Park!
Staff, Location, Comfort
Really wonderful stay -- the staff, especially the naturalists, are wonderful, they try hard and the experience going into the Elephant reserve is great. I would recommend it highly!

Wonderful stay with great staff
Best things were the included safaris, the food and the camp setup
We had a fantastic stay and safaris. We couldn't fault the staff - they were too attentive if anything as as it happened we were the only people staying at the time. The camp was wonderfully well setup with torches at night to get a lovely effect Perhaps the not so good thing was that the camp was a 40min drive from the park enterence and not in the park itself. The camp moves every few months so this might not always be the case. Overall very expensive but a lovely experience.

挺有特色 没有照片看着好 性价比一般
服务 食物 特色
帐篷的设施对比两千多一晚的房价来说太过简陋了 与奢侈完全不沾边 没有热水 虫子特别多 吃饭和睡觉都感觉被虫子包围了 但是服务确实不错 食物也非常可口 算是一种新奇的露营体验
