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 wilderness
- an environment where there are new discoveries around every corner.

 

In a Jeep safari you may see Sri Lankan wilderness…But, living in it you feel, hear and smell it...

 

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.

 

 

What sets Ahaspokuna apart

  

1. Massive private spaces…
We offer you probably the largest private space of 1000 sqm that any camp, lodge, hotel or any other accommodation could offer you in Sri Lanka.

There are plenty of spaces within our boundaries for you to read, relax, meditate, or do yoga.


2. First-ever suite tent in Sri Lanka…

You have heard of and seen tents, but suite tents?
Your accommodation unit (private space) would consist of your arrival deck, sleeping tent, luggage and powder lounge, flushable toilet and an indoor shower that has hot and cold water, a romantic star bed/day bed for you to relax or sleep in during the day or night, and the first-ever bush bathtub in Sri Lanka that overlooks the grassland in the 1000 sqm of private space protected by an elephant fence.

 

3. Starry starry nights...
Ahaspokuna is the only accommodation in Sri Lanka, and most probably in our part of the world, to have a fully-fledged independent star bed for all accommodation units.
Have a bath in our “Wild Bath”...

4. Another first in Sri Lanka…
We offer a bathtub connected to hot and cold water that overlooks the grassland with every accommodation unit. You are invited to use it at any time of the day for a completely refreshing experience.


5. We have no motorable road…
Ahaspokuna is the only all-suite accommodation facility in the country where there is no motorable route, giving peace to the wildlife, environment, and to you as well.

6. Elephant fence encircling the humans, not the elephants...
There is a very healthy and happy herd of elephants living in the Ahaspokuna vicinity and they quite frequently pay visits to see how we are doing.

7. Do bush walks in a way that hasn't ever been done before in Sri Lanka...
Whether it’s a short soft trail, a half-day moderate trail, or an adventurous full-day trail, Ahaspokuna has it all.

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



 logo high res

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.
