This is a program for all you animal lovers as this will give you the opportunity to work closely with the wild animals treating and caring for them. You get to spend your time in a beautiful and luscious forest away from all the hustle bustle in the city allowing you to experience the rural village lifestyle and cuisine of the country. And the forest is the natural habitat to the animals like elephants, jungle cats, deer, eagles and reptiles in Sri Lanka. You will be working closely with the wildlife conservation Department of Sri Lanka to support rescuing injured animals and birds, and conserving the wildlife of Sri Lanka.
About the Accommodation : Your accommodation in Sigiriya would be an open space accommodation with wooden beds. The accommodation is surrounded by an organic farm and sometimes you will also be able to see a few wild elephants who visit the garden unexpectedly. There is also a tree hut if you would like to climb up so that you can see the beautiful surroundings of the village. If you are afraid of sleeping in the open space, we do have a room only for girls inside the accommodation. Around 25 participants can stay at the open space accommodation at a time. Since the weather in that area is hot most of the time, the hot water facility will not be available at the accommodation.The accommodation is built in a way where you can get fresh air throughout the day and night. Four bathrooms are also built at the accommodation which will have be shared among the participants. Food Arrangements : You will be provided with three meals a day on weekdays and two meals per day on weekends. The meals are a mix of Western and Sri lankan food, consisting mainly of vegetarian dishes including rice and vegetables.
Sigiriya is a village located in the Central Province of Sri Lanka. The village is named after a giant rock which is popular around the world as the Lion’s Rock. Due to the presence of the monuments of a castle built on the top of the rock, thousands of tourists are attracted to Sigiriya every year. However, the village is not touristy and the locals in this area lead simple lifestyles. The majority of the people living in Sigiriya are Buddhists and thus the area consists of many temples that require development.
