In a bird sanctuary next to Weerawila lake, Flameback Eco Lodge offers a remarkable wildlife experience. Accommodation is in 7 luxury tented lodges with private wooden decks looking out to the lake. There is a range of nature trails, cycling adventures and fishing trips around the lodge itself and an on-site infinity pool. Dining is in the lakeside restaurant, where the chefs prepare delicious Sri Lankan food with fresh produce from the organic garden.
Many visitors to Sri Lanka take a safari, usually for a day or two, focused on just one National Park. What’s particularly unique about Flameback is that it’s in between Uda Walawe, Yala and Bundala National Parks - respectively known for their elephant and leopard population and varied birdlife. You can visit all three during your stay at Flameback.
You’re particularly close to Lunugamwehere National Park, which serves as an elephant corridor between Yala and Uda Walawe.
Given the variety of wildlife experiences combined with engaging cultural experiences, good on-site facilities, and comfortable tents, you could easily spend 4 or 5 nights here rather than rushing from hotel to hotel.
Eco/Adventure - This category covers gorgeous lodges in the jungle, comfortable safari camps and dreamy, but simple, beach cabanas. These places defy conventional categorisation: what is communing with nature to one person may be terrifying bugs to another! Many of these places are very comfortable and the service generally of a very high level - but please read the website review carefully and/or talk to us and be sure to have understood what you are letting yourselves in for!
