Ross and I really enjoyed our two night stay at Camp Hasthi. From our arrival to our departure, we were looked after in every respect. Firstly meals were wonderful and served in various delightful locations around the camp, complete with fairy lights, candles and table linen - and with an impressive water monitor ambling by! Accommodation was glamping - comfortable and clean. Our two safaris to Udawalawe National Park were packed with bird, mammal and reptile sightings - wonderful! Also much appreciated was the attention to our specific interests. For example, Ross in particular, has a real passion for microbats. Syd, our extraordinary host, on learning this, quickly organised the crew for a special excursion to a rarely frequented cave about one hour drive away from camp. While bat spotting might not be a trip for everyone (!), it definitely hit the spot for Ross. We want to mention this to illustrate the staff's desire to accommodate their client's individual interests. The staff really deserve special mention as they were wonderful in all respects. Rajah was extraordinary and not just at mealtimes, ever attentive. A special mention to Kumadini for her genuine sweetness and care. We really enjoyed philosophical conversations with Syd on all manner of topics - a truly interesting and knowledgeable person. The staff "behind the scenes" also deserve recognition as they all worked together remarkably to provide a unique experience. We loved Sri Lanka and Camp Hasthi is a special memory. We recommend it!
