Kumana Mobile Tented Camp
Kumana National Park

Top 10s logo 

Kumana Mobile Tented Camp is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Safari Lodges in Asia.

This camp is our favourite hidden gem in Sri Lanka and offers the best wildlife experience anyone could want on the island. Simple yet brilliant, the camp is run on a completely private basis and comprises a small collection of A-farmed tents which either have a single or double pop-up bed. There is a fresh water shower along with separate portable loos located next to the tents. The communal area comprises of a large table and chairs along with a comprehensive library of the best wildlife books you could ask for. It is the perfect place to relax when you are not out exploring and the food (mostly Sri Lankan, but Continental is also possible) is absolutely delicious!

The camp has several locations, each of which is fantastic. There is a site close to the ocean, within the forest or next to the river (river swims are possible!). The best thing about the experience, is that you will be looked after by the ultimate experts in in the field who are not only great fun and charming but are also wildlife experts who know the park inside out and are incredibly passionate about what they do. One of them is the former park warden who has worked and lived in the park for over forty years - it really couldn’t get much better!

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
