We were there three weeks ago but the whole trip was organised prior to leaving. However, based on the knowledge that the jeeps belong to the lodge and the naturalists do as well and the number of guests who stay at the and we were given many choices.
I believe it is almost certain that if you are staying at the lodge you will be able to find s space available for all activities including the lake safari and the jungle safari - we did both and really enjoyed. Totally aside if you like cooking try the jungle cooking three of us really enjoyed and all group (8) eat it that night as a starter. Enjoy Gal Oya lodge we certainly did
