  • The ultimate escape into an ancient wilderness contrasted with all the luxuries of modern-day

Ahaspokuna Bucket List

1. Bushwalks and Treksahaspokuna treks bush walks

  • Privacy – Instead of being amongst hordes of wandering tourists, you will only share your magical moments of seeing Sri Lanka’s pristine wilderness with the other lodge guests.

  • All-inclusive Package – All walks and refreshments for the walks are included in your stay, with up to 4 walks for every 2 nights you stay at Ahaspokuna.
  • Safety – We invite you to walk in the shoes of a bushman with leopards and sloth bears on prowl in the area, though much too shy to confront you. However, elephants are an entirely different story, thus our expert trackers keep their eyes peeled for these gentle giants. To ensure your safety, an advance party is sent out prior to bushwalks so that we wouldn't startle them en-route. Our Walking Safari Specialists have your safety as their primary concern, making your experience in the bush as safe as it is fun. All walks will be guided by a professional naturalist and experienced Bushman who’ve lived in this forested area for generations.

  • Night Walks – Our walks aren’t limited to the day, experience our night walks and access to the “hides” to see animals visiting the waterhole after sundown. Elephants regularly patronise the waterhole and we have heard the roar of leopards close to camp.

  • Bespoke Experiences – Our regular bushwalks focus more on the birds, scenery and the history of the ground you walk on. However, we are happy to customise these walks to suit your interests.

2. Stargazing & Night Walks

Sitting alone under the stars and dreaming of galaxies far, far away may be a farfetched dream for many. But, it’s a dream come true at nights in Ahaspokuna. Inky black night skies, completely unspoilt by anything other than the galaxies of stars, surround you as you sit and sip on a glass of wine around the campfire. If you or your partner prefer the romantic privacy of having your own space, then look no further than your own star bed. It is probably one of the most romantic places to stargaze and share intimate moments.

However, if you are the kind who loves to stretch your legs after dinner and maybe embark on a starlight adventure, our naturalist will be delighted to show you around the campsite where you will see, hear, and even be a part of the nightlife in the forest. What more, you may hear the roar of a leopard or the trumpeting of an elephant marking their presence.

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.
