Flameback Eco Lodge is nestled within the Weerawila Bird sanctuary located in southern Sri Lanka, southwest of the Yala National Park. At an altitude of 20 meters above sea level and consisting of wetlands and reservoirs, Weerawila attracts a diverse range of bird species each year to roost and nest. Being aptly located alongside the Weerawila (tank) reservoir within the sanctuary, Flameback Eco Lodge wondrously attracts thousands of local and migratory birds who roam across the sanctuary, which is home to both aquatic bird species and jungle dwelling birds.

An authentic experience awaits you in Weerawila, unbridled with the charm of an idyllic fishing village, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Quiet and tranquil, this small town is conveniently located and is central to some of the most renowned wild life parks anc cultural heritage site of Sri Lanka.
