Our trip to Sri Lanka with Walk With Jith was from 27 Apr to 1 May 18. We are extremely delighted with all the arrangements, which started with the reception at the airport, where we received 01 package which included a guidebook on birds of Sri Lanka and a road map (such attention to details and thoughtfulness !)

We are especially happy with our chauffeur guide, Thilina! He is professional, friendly and always do his best to find the birds!

We strongly recommend Walk With Jith for those planning a trip to Sri Lanka and in fact, we are already planning for another visit!

Unexpected. He could identify trees and flowers

Mr. Senarath, our guide for the holiday was reassuringly there to meet us when we arrived. He looked after us the whole trip occasionally offering us extra possibilities such as a shop at a spice garden or a visit to the Museum in Galle.

We had expected our guide to be able to identify birds for us and tell us something about the history and culture of the island. What was unexpected, but very much appreciated, was that he could identify trees and flowers for us.

We really appreciated the combination of a cultural and birding tour. It was just what we wanted. Everywhere the accommodation and food was good, especially overlooking the beach at Mirissa. Two days at the coast was a great way to end the trip’

Thiely enjoyable as a photographic trip.

We were not after species count, so we took all the photo opportunities that were offered.

Our guide/driver was very knowledgeable and took the trouble to show us all as best as he could. The arrangement of our trip went without any hiccups.

We will recommend Walk With Jith and will come again in future.

So happy with everything.

I saw most of the birds on my wish list and my guide tried his best to accommodate my wishes during our time together.

The tour took in the very best wildlife sites of Sri Lanka and encountered many species of mammals, reptiles, butterfly and 225 species of birds. The hotels and travel arrangements were impeccable. The guide Hetti and the logistics team of Jaya and Harshaka were brilliant.

Love it all. Brilliant

3,000 photographs of over 200 bird and numerous mammals including leopards, elephants and blue whales

14 Feb 2018

We first became aware of Walk With Jith at 2017 Birdfair when we met Prasanjith Caldera in person. His knowledge of and passion for Sri Lankan wildlife was infectious. After contacting him by email and informing him we were interested in the Wildlife and Photography Tour we arrived in Sri Lanka on 14th February 2018. We were met by Jith himself and our dedicated tour guide Thilina Kayrunana (Tili) who was our companion for the next 14 days. Tili shared the same qualities as his boss and over the next 2 weeks we obtained 3,000 photographs of over 200 bird and numerous mammals including leopards, elephants and blue whales. Tili recognised every bird by call alone and his eyesight was astonishing. He catered for our every need so that our trip ran smoothly and was a great ambassador for both Walk With Jith Tours and Sri Lanka. Thanks to Jith and Tili for providing such an incredible adventure and we would recommend them to everyone unreservedly!

Our guide Hetti proved to be extremely knowledgeable about birds & wildlife in general. He went out of his way to ensure we got the best views of the many birds” and he used his local knowledge to find many rare and elusive species.

In addition, the hotels were comfortable with attentive staff and excellent food. Our van was most comfortable & roomy. The organisation of jeeps & tours round national parks ran really well.
