Through Walk With Jtih arrangement. We had a wonderful birding trip experience in Sri Lanka starting from Feb 23rd to March 04th 2019.

During this journey, we watched 203 species of birds which includes all the 33 endemics. Thanks to Athula, our bird guide, he is a birding expert, without his help we couldn’t achieve our target.

Upali: excellent care, 215 species & all endemics. Fantastic service!

8 Jan 2019

We have had the best possible birding holiday. Our guide (Upali) has taken excellent care of us throughout and found 215 species, including all the endemics. We have been able to relax totally, knowing that our guide (driver too) would take care of everything, whilst not being intrusive. We had great views of all the species. Upali has also been passionate about the cultural sites.
Jith engaged with our ideas prior to the trip and organised our tailor – made itinerary. All was so easy. At the beginning of the holiday, Walk With Jith drove us to our Air BnB accommodation near Matara, which we had arranged ourselves. The accommodation wasn’t easy to find, but the drives helped locate it and would not leave until we had checked the accommodation and were happy- even though it was our own booking. Fantastic service!

Excellent to enjoy, learn and fully inspired

Overall this is a lovely trip with Walk With Jith, very clear briefing upon arrival with detailed booklet, the success of this trip cannot be without our guide Mr. Senerath, who is very knowledgeable about Sri Lanka birds in all the areas that we visited, he has impressive eyesight.
All accommodations are comfortable, excellent Sri Lankan food and fresh fruit juice during our visit in 11 days.
For natural birds, wildlife lovers, advanced ones or beginners this program will be excellent to enjoy, learn and fully inspired. Again, thanks to the arrangement by Walk With Jith, and special thanks to the guide. Mr. Senerath.

Sincerely,
Mr. and Mrs. Graham

The tour was working, except for a train ride that wasn't booked in enough time.
Our guide Susantha was excellent. He did our journey fantastic. Took care of everything, was very good at English, spotted birds and animals we never expected to see. He was the best.

The hotel “Lake View” was cold and noisy. (Kitulgala)

Good with bird list.

Good with planning.

This is my second time birding with “Walk With Jith” and as expected, we had a wonderful time, thanks Jith for organizing the tour for us and we are especially impressed by the flexibility in changing the booking to accommodate our special needs. A big “thank you” to my friend Thilina, a great energetic and knowledgeable guide who knows everything about birds in Sri Lanka! Thank you for buying us king coconuts, sweet corn and vegetable rotti. They were so tasteful. I hope to visit Sri Lanka again soon and do come to Taiwan when you have time, we can do bird watching together.

20 day trip, great mix, loved Hetti

18 Dec 2018

Superb and well organised 20 day trip, loved hetti who is an expert wildlife guide. We learnt the names of many Sri Lankan birds and animals. Our trip was a great mix of different experiences from safaris and walks to ancient cultural sites. We would recommend walk with ith to others.

Our driver Sumudu had a lovely manor and kept the van very clean.
We were also appreciative of the efforts to reduce plastic water bottle waste so we bought our own water bottles and a sterilizer pen and the company provided 5 litre bottles to refill our bottles when needed.

Chamil our guide; outstanding hearing, high knowledge of fauna !

12 Jul 2018

Thank you for a very good birding experience in southern part of Sri Lanka.
My driver, Chamil Uddika, I s a very good driver and not least birder. His capability to hear one, was outstanding. He also has very good knowledge over birds and all other animals that crossed over the road.

We had three different accommodations. All of them were to my satisfaction. You can’t expect too much when living in countryside, but they were shaming motel’s with a very friendly and helpful staff. They fully covered my needs.

I will not have any problem with recommending this tour to other birders.

Thank you very much Susantha. Extremely happy with everything.

14 Dec 2018

Susar gave us a feedback form to fill out but instead we’re emailing it to you as we didn't get time to fill it in by hand.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Susar for driving us around for the week. It has been the absolute best way for us to get around and see beautiful Sri Lanka.

We loved how much history Susar knew and told us about as we was passing all off the lovely landmarks. Nothing was ever too much for him and he took us wherever we needed or wanted to go.

Thank you very much, we are extremely happy with everything.

LOGISTICS

Our choice of Kithulvilla in Kitulgala was excellent even though A/C was not functioning. Food + service were brilliant although a few miles out of village this was not an issue. Scenery/ setting fabulous and birds in the garden.

Nuwara-Eliya hotel was not so good with few facilities. There must be better hotels in this area for the price. I would recommend trying some other options.

Tissa hotel (Hibiscus Garden) was excellent with good facilities, great setting and good food.

Sinharaja- Jansen’s Bungalow. Stunning setting and excellent accommodation and food.

Drivers/ Guides were excellent, friendly and knowledgeable and were always there on time.
