Gal Oya, Sri Lanka

Discover Sri Lanka’s forgotten National Park, Gal Oya. With the country’s largest lake, the wildlife is best seen from a boat safari, especially the swimming elephants. Gal Oya Lodge specialises in high-end, environmentally responsible tourism.

The nine-room wildlife lodge is constructed from natural materials that have all been locally sourced. Spread across 20 acres of private forest, it’s the ideal place to get back to nature.
