To the Aggressor Tented Safari Lodge!
The next day, after a delicious Sri Lankan breakfast (curry for breakfast, it’s a thing!), we made our way to the Aggressor Tented Safari Lodge, which will be the base for our adventure. It was a four hour drive north to Wilpattu, where the lodge was located – which gave us the opportunity to drive past towns, villages, temples, jungles, fields and generally observe daily life in this beautiful South Asian country.
We got the Safari Lodge in time for lunch, and started exploring – and it is gorgeous!! The lodge is a tented safari lodge, with each chalet made of canvas walls on a sturdy wooden frame. It’s an amazing setup, and made me feel like I was getting the chance to camp in the middle of the jungle and be really close to the wildlife, while at the same time being super comfortable and secure, with air conditioning, beautiful furnishings, and all mod cons. The lodge is tucked away in 6 acres of forest, with a river running right in front of our chalet, and nature trails and walks right outside the door!
