Galle area/ Koggala Lake. Villa Karamoja nestles in a green haven of peace and tranquillity, perched on a bluff with one hundred and eighty-degree views over Koggala Lake. The house is set in a secluded one-acre garden with abundant wildlife. The colonial-style house designed with many reclaimed architectural features. Relax by the infinity pool and watch the local fishermen and abundant wildlife on the lake, from fish eagles to kingfishers, monitor lizards, monkeys, bats and fireflies.
