Design & Concept
Botakanda means Wild Elephant in the spoken language of the "Indigenous" Aboriginal People of Sri Lanka.
- These Watch Huts are built by villagers on the tree to chase away the wild elephants from eating their crops. Our design & idea's are based on the dream of the farmer who lived before with his family up on the tree.
- We have individual Outdoor Toilet, Shower & Hot Water Powered with LPG gas & no television.
- No of Watch Huts - 3 Watch Huts and 01 Lodge built 3 Feet above ground.
- The Elephant Watch Hut is a very special place created to help local villagers. It is a marriage between local village staff and their culture and tourists - an opportunity for tourists to learn from each other.
- To experience the 'real' Sri Lanka in the company of genuinely warm, honest locals then give it a try.
- There is a chance you will see wild elephants during your stay at Elephant Watch Hut but there’s no guarantee !
- So come here with the right mindset !
- Stay at least 2 nights so that you can take some time to share with the local experiences.
