My stay at the camping safari's was all i hoped for!. I learned so much and got to do so many different works that taught me so many skills. The people I worked with were so nice and kind, they had so much patience and made me feel at home. I loved my tent and all the settings of the camp, I really felt like I was in the jungle, with wild monkeys hanging out and fireflies at night, The whole place is just beautiful. Noel the host was also so nice and helpful, I had some kind of problem and he with no hesitation helped me and gave me all that I needed and made me feel comfortable at all time.

Staying & working with Noel & Cecile was nothing short of ideal as I began my travels in Sri Lanka. They were completely hospitable, generous, and always ensured I had everything I needed to remain comfortable & productive. This is certainly a position for someone who already has honed skills they can contribute. Your time comes with a lot of independence & autonomy. If you're someone who knows how to fill the gaps with your skills & you're motivated to do so, this is the perfect place for you!

Hi Jenna,
We all felt the same having you around as a family member and thank you so much for caring for Eli.

I applied for the hospitality position and stayed at the camp for seven days. Because the busy season had just ended there weren't that many guests, so I worked less hours than described in the vacancy. I spent most of my time with Mano and Shani. They showed me all the nature the camp has to offer and made me feel so at home! The rest of the team were very friendly as well. Sleeping in a tent (a nice one I must add) and going on the camping are really an experience. I had an amazing time at the camp and would highly recommend it to everybody!

It's an incredible experience you live in a tent, surrounded by animals and the work is very dynamic! If you have the opportunity to do the Safari, it's incredible

This experience is definitely for a nature lover who loves all things outdoors and doesn't mind roughing it a little. Mano was the man in charge when Noel wasn't around, they were both very welcoming and friendly. Mano was always around to help when I had a tent malfunction or needed some help with my daily tasks. The staffs English wasn't great so communication was difficult at times but we got by and shared lots of laughs. They would always make sure I had plenty of food and help me with any heavy lifting. If you're looking for a lively sociable volunteer exchange however this isn't for you!
