The programme

Day 1

Arrival: We meet you at the designated meeting point by noon and start the short welcome trek through the forest to prehistoric times. Your luggage will be taken by our porters so that you have time to look around and take in the sights as you make your way to the camp. After the welcome briefing by our experienced Naturalist at the camp lounge area, you may check-in into your suite-tent (i.e. your 21st century cave). You will be briefed on the features of the tent and the associated facilities. After you settle in, lunch will be served.

Post-lunch: Our Naturalist will discuss the evening programme with you. You are free to take it easy and enjoy the large campsite and the surrounding area, or you may opt for the 2 ½ to 3-hour adventure bushwalk that will take you through the grassland and forest.

If you decide to stay back and enjoy Ahaspokuna to the fullest, you may pick any of the free value additions and activities that have been created for kids / families.

Evening: We meet you again around 6pm at a unique viewpoint that lets you enjoy a magical sunset so vivid, no camera in the world can do it justice.

Dinner & Drinks: Take a relaxing soak in your Bush Bathtub and meet us near the campfire for drinks, dinner and campfire stories under the stars.

Post-dinner: Wrap up a day of adventure and bliss with a relaxing night walk. If you’re up for it, bundle up and visit our “Hide” near the waterhole for an immersive experience of nocturnal wildlife as the chilly forest breeze sweeps across the grasslands. Or, simply retire to your suite-tent or star bed and enjoy the rest of the night isolated with nothing in-between your family and a billion stars.

Day 2

Pre-breakfast: We start the pre-breakfast guided nature trail at 6:30am – this bushwalk is ideal for kids to get the hang of bird watching! The walk takes about an hour, but if you want to skip it and sleep-in like Fred Flintstone, you can meet us for breakfast at 7:30am.

Post-breakfast: We depart for a late-morning, 3-hour bushwalk that follows an elephant-made path and cuts through the grasslands, going deep into the forest. If the weather permits, a refreshing shallow dip on the top of the Gan Ella Waterfall is included.


We embark on a family time journey filled with adventure and mystery. The 2-hour treasure hunt has multiple activities including deciphering codes, identifying and learning new habitats, as well as team building activities to keep the children and parents on their toes.

Lunch: A delicious hot lunch will await you at 1pm. Sunbathe in your Day Bed / Star Bed, unwind in your Bush Bathtub, or simply fall asleep in your private garden hammock. Children can be provided with reading material, along with colouring or painting activities and board games, so that the parents can indulge in a little “us time” and rest up before the evening family excursion.

Evening: Our evening trek will take approximately 2 ½ to 3 hours, following a trail forged by the descendants of Woolly Mammoths, into the grasslands and forest.


Day 3

Morning: Did a “Fred” and slept-in for Day 2’s pre-breakfast nature trail? Here’s your chance to still experience the forest come alive at sunrise in Ahaspokuna; embark on your pre-breakfast nature trail at 6:30am and arrive back at camp around 7:30am for a delicious breakfast!

Post-breakfast: Sometimes goodbyes can be long and fun, and that’s precisely what’s in store for those leaving the camp. Your departure trail is roughly a 20-minute trek with a descent of about 300 metres, taking you back to where we first met you. This where we bid farewell and you leave behind the world of the Flintstones… until next time!

Ahaspokuna Stories

Phone (+94) 70 222 8 222  |  WhatsApp Number: +94 71 066 22 02

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 rainwater. 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. Ahaspokuna by Eco Team
