BORDERLANDS RIVER BASE CAMP is situated on a hill overlooking the Kelani River. The camp combines the best aspects of outdoor camping and travel for those who need a certain degree of comfort. Surrounded by mountains and the clear, rushing Kelani below, the site is truly stunning. It is rustic and natural, perfect for those looking for a refined camping holiday.

All the riverfront tents and cabins are covered by thatched roofs, ensuring a dry stay at all times. The comfortable tents and cabins feature twin beds (which can be converted into double beds), quality linen, bedside tables and lamps, as well as a private terrace with spectacular views overlooking the Kelani. All the cabins also have mosquito nets. The cabins are ideal for families and will sleep a families of between three to five. In the evenings guests gravitate to our Long House with its sound system, informal bar and comfortable cushioned seating area. The Long House is fully wi-fi’d so you can share your adventures with friends anywhere in the world. Enjoy delicious food, a cold beer and great company with new found friends in a completely chilled environment.

    All tents have proper wooden frame beds with mattresses, lights both inside and outside. Each tent has a thatched roof over it and a terrace from which you can view the river and the surrounding mountains. The tents zip completely secure so you can have total privacy, and the wood cabins, whilst can open on three sides during the day, have blinds which come down and offer complete privacy. Each cabin has a private, secured entrance. There is no need to bring towels as you will be provided with one during your stay. All accommodation has power points to charge electrical items such as laptops, phones and cameras.

    We do not have en suite bathroom facilities, but our bathroom block is separated into male and female facilities. Our showers are hot water showers. The water is safe for brushing teeth but do not drink the water, as it is not treated. A refreshing alternative to a shower is a river bath, and where possible please bring biodegradable products to help us protect our shared environment.

    We keep all of our watersports equipment on site so that we can maintain our equipment properly. As well as kayaks and rafts, we have all our safety equipment on site, including life jackets, paddling jackets and helmets on hand for all ages and sizes.
