Day 4

Short tour around the Farm, inspecting the process of fruits and vegetables grown organically, traditional style - depending on the season.

Departure for your next destination, or to Colombo for an overnight stay en route to the Airport.

 

Please note: we could keep visitors occupied for as long as they want to, as this is a vast area of jungle that we are talking about and cannot be seen in a day or two, as sight-seeing will be done on foot. Some guests who come to the Farm prefer not to walk about but, just to relax and enjoy the soul of the wilderness. 

 

Night walks could be arranged for the hard-core nature lover, including tracking and observing elephants, bear and maybe leopard on foot. The nightlife in the jungle is amazing and with a lot of activity happening. 

Nights in the jungle is a totally different experience when compared to the days in the jungle, the main reason being due to our vision in the dark - which is only what you may see in the light of your torch, again, greatly depending on your torch, which is a very important factor on these dangerous treks.

A word on the kind of torch that would be accepted on these treks - your torch must be powerful, prefrerably powered by the use of 3 or 4 batteries - "D" Size (big batteries). Your torch must have a good 'spot' and very important - must be economical and strong.

A trek into the jungle starting at about 10.00 pm from the Farm is an experience for those who are strong at heart, and for the real hard-core nature lover. 

Stealth, silence and stamina is an important factor on these treks as it is quite strenous, well depending on how far you want to go.

 

Note: night walks will be at our discretion as it is dangerous. We have the right to refuse this request, depending on a lot of factors and will be dicided on the spot.

 

Tents could be provided for those who may want to camp out in the wilderness amidst the diverse variety of wildlife that live in the jungle. 

This is an experience those real hard-core nature lovers. 

 

Please Note: we recommend you to be equipped with the following items, if you intend to visit our wild hideout in the jungle. 

Well fitting garments for the jungle treks and fitting shoes or boots.

A powerful torch with a good spot, preferably 4 cells, using ‘D’ size batteries and an extra supply of batteries.
