In a Jeep you may see Sri Lankan wilderness…

Living in it you feel, hear and smell it...

Live in a hidden 2260-acre area of pristine wilderness that was created by merging a historical hideout, used in the revolution of 1817, and a 200 sq. km. area of protected forest.

This all-suite tented camp provides experiences that are all about immersive luxury living in remote grasslands – an environment where there are new discoveries around every corner.

 

Trekking home

During our world-famous bushwalks, you will be guided by professional naturalists and expert Bushmen who have lived in this forested area for several generations. Enjoy Sri Lanka's famous warmth and hospitality at its finest and make your dream of living in the wilderness a reality.

Meditation

Private Bushwalks, Yoga, Meditation, Ayurvedic Massage Therapy, Culinary Classes, Udawalawe National Park Safaris, Exploring Prehistoric Human Settlements and a Forgotten Kingdom… is simply a beginning to your story at Ahaspokuna.

Hulan Ella Falls

Immerse your senses in a mosaic of habitats with wide grasslands hiding an eclectic variety of plants and herbs – some of which have medicinal value, cave systems used by elephants that go there for salt, streams, hidden waterfalls… and, amongst a plethora of mammals and birds, you discover the true meaning of co-existence. 

 

All this quintessentially makes Ahaspokuna what it is – a magical experience.

Finding Our Roots

The history of Ahaspokuna is deeply connected to
the history of Sri Lanka itself and it has indeed been an eventful past.
Its roots are deeply entrenched in the history of the great Kandyan
Kingdom in particular and the colonial invasions of the time,
as well as the heroic resistance of the hill capital
and its people against foreign invaders.

The highlights of this great history include the
up
country, leaders signing a treaty with the invaders

and the subsequent breach of contract by the colonial masters,

the 1818 Uva revolt by the key hill country leaders etc.

From our Frequently Asked Questions . . .

Is Ahasokuna different to any other safari camp concept in Sri Lanka?
When it comes to ambiance, service, and how the day's activities go by, there are a lot of similarities between Ahaspokuna Bush Walks Camp and a high-end safari camp concept. However, the main difference is with how we do safaris. In any other safari camp in Sri Lanka, you would be getting into a safari jeep and would do morning or evening safaris depending on the number of days you stay; but with us, your safaris are walking safaris. However, though 75% of our clients have seen even elephants on our walks, we do not call our walks "Walking Safaris"; to manage expectations. We call them "Bush Walks".

 

Is it possible to do a safari to a national park from Ahaspokuna?
Yes, it's possible. If we measure direct, as the crow flies, Udawalawe National Park is located just about 15km away and it takes only about one hour and forty five minutes to get to it's entrance. Hence, it's very possible to do a safari in the Udawalawe National Park.

We recommend a morning safari, leaving the camp early morning, where you can get back to the camp for lunch, finishing a safari around 11 a.m.

- Ahaspokuna Stories -

A H A S - P O K U N A   

In the Sinhalese language (spoken in Sri Lanka), “Ahas” means “Sky” and “Pokuna” means “Pond” or “Pool”. Ahaspokuna is so named in reference to the lake here, high up in the hills, that is only fed by rain water. A former settlement that sprung up on its shores was subsequently also named “Ahaspokuna”. Today, the jungle tide has washed over where people once lived and the camp provides a wilderness retreat for those in search of something different.
