Kumana Bird Watching Camp Sri Lanka

Overview of Kumana Bird Watching Camp

KUMANA NATIONAL PARK (a.k.a. ‘Yala East’) is a well-known bird sanctuary where a multitude of birds breed and roost.  One of the most significant features of the park is the ‘Kumana Villu’ - a 200 hectare natural swamp lake, fed by the ‘Kumbukkan Oya’ through a half mile long narrow channel.  It is at this mangrove swamp that many water birds nest in May and June.  Regular sightings include pelicans, painted storks, spoonbills, white ibis, herons, egrets and little cormorants.  The very rare black-necked stork has also been spotted at the swamp.  Besides the prolific birdlife, Kumana is also home to some of the mammals found in the larger YALA (West) park, such as elephants and leopards.  The vegetation in Kumana consists mainly of mangrove trees, kumbuk trees and the karan fern, as well as the open marsh area.  

* For bird watching enthusiasts, this park is an ‘absolute must’.


Overview of Kumana Bird Watching Safari Camp

Srilankan Expedition Birding and Safari Camp is located near the riverbank of the Kumbukkan river (which gets its name from the massive number of ‘kumbuk' trees in the area).  Also in the camp area is an old shrine that is still used by the local people who worship the resident god in the area by offering milk rice. 


The campsite is truly ‘off-the-beaten track' with the only access by 4WD vehicle.   Forget any ideas about cramped tents and sitting on the ground for mealtimes – this is camping in style!  The site is set up prior to your arrival, with everything from the kitchen sink, chairs and tables, toilets, showers and cold beer being transported in.  In the evening you can enjoy a hearty barbecue meal in a magical setting – the whole area is lit up with traditional flame torches and a roaring campfire. So sit back, relax and let our experienced staff cater to your every need.
