In spite of our remote location the arrival procedure is simple. We take care of the transfer from the nearest town - Buttala, to the camp location. The distance is about 10 km. You just need to meet a team member in the town, from there you are taken to Tree Tops Jungle Lodge. This transfer is included in our rates.
All the information required on arrival day is provided with the confirmation of the booking.
We are located in a natural area accessible via a locally used sand track road in the Buttala and Okkampitiya area. The track passes a tiny hamlet, leads to some fields and ends somewhere in the wilderness 3 km from our location. The track is not a road, it is not maintained, just an access trail used by locals. There is no sign board at any point. The track to the lodge leads into elephant country! Therefore, we advice visitors to arrive at Tree Tops Jungle Lodge not much later than 4 pm. Arrive early, have a cup of tea and get tuned to the nature around us.
