Does someone inside forest department need to sign it if we need to reserve a bungalow?

YES. An officer from the forest department should approve your reservation.

For this you don't necessarily have to know some there. Just go to the department and tell them your requirement. They will prepare the documents and will ask you to get it signed. If you know some one there, you can get it signed by that person or else they will point you to some senior officer. That person generally ask you few questions to make sure that you are a serious visitor to the forest and will sign the docs for you.  Smiley

Hi friends,

I called Forest Department (Baththaramulla) on 0112875540 and ask the telephone number of the Riverston - Illukkumbura office but they said that the telephone facility is not there. So if anyone knows those who are on that office and a contact number to get it reserved for accommodation please reply. And also it is better if the reply can include the prices and other details as well.  Thank you.

Darshaka,

I think all the reservations are done from the Baththaramulla office.

I recently met this guy "Jayathilaka" who is a local guide working for the forest department at Illukkumbura. You can try contacting him. You can find the contact number in this tread. - http://www.lakdasun.com/forum/index.php?topic=559.0

Hi,

Does some one know the phone number of the wild life department Kumana (Okanda) office? I wanted to book a camp site there and the number given by the Malabe office (0633130772) is not in use it seems. Greatly appreciate your help.

BR,

Thanks very much Priyanjan and Lakdasun.

I tried both numbers, but no success yet. The one given by Lakdasun is also not in use it seems and nobody is answering the number mentioned by Priyanjan.. There is hope since it is at least ringing and somebody might pick up one day  Grin 
Maybe I have to go all the way there just to make the reservation Wink

Hi Priyanjan and all,

I managed to get through to the number given by Priyanjan. It was Mr. Gamini Gunasinghe who answered, but unfortunately he has been transferred a week or so ago and the phone is with him at Dehiattakandiya.

There is currently no phone available at Kumana after his transfer, but he very kindly offered to make the reservation on my behalf. We had a long chat (almost one hour) regarding the beauty,wildlife, history and lost archeological sites spread around the Kumana park. He is a wealth of information and we arranged to go together which would surely make my experience that much more richer.

Thanks again Priyanjan for the valuable help as always. Smiley Really appreciate it.
