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.

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.

Thank you for a well organized and very enjoyable 16 days in Sri Lanka. Wherever we went, the people were very hospitable, extremely friendly & helpful – hotel staff, locals, jeep drivers, shopkeepers etc – always smiling and genuinely pleased to see you, even welcoming you into their houses and gardens to enable you to see owls in their rafters or spurfowl in their gardens at odd hours of the day!

Guide: tons of experience and enthusiasm. Outstanding birding and cultural trip

Thank you for organizing an outstanding birding and cultural trip to Sri Lanka. The trip exceeded all my expectations!

Upali our guide was fantastic. He is and excellent birder with tons of experience and enthusiasm. Thanks to his efforts I was able to see over 180 species and all endemics. I had given up hope of seeing the last one, the scaly thrush, in Sinharaja forest. But Upali remained optimistic throughout our stay there and made sure we had good looks of this challenging endemic.

I am really glad that a friend recommended Walk With Jith. All the arrangements, accommodations and timely correspondence were wonderful. The service and food everywhere we visited was superb. I would highly recommend your company to my friends and wish you continued success.

Warmest regards,

Jith’s planning and Dammika’s execution. Itinerary was fantastic, seamless arrangements.

Thanks to Jith’s planning and Dammika’s execution we have fallen in love with Sri Lanka. The country has exceeded our expectations. The itinerary was fantastic with seamless arrangements.

We could not have wished for a more helpful, personable driver/ guide. Dammika ensured we made the most of things, including an unscheduled train ride and buying lemon puff biscuits! The focus was on birds but also included wildlife and flora. We also had an insight into Sri Lankan life, culture and food. Beds everywhere were comfortable, staff were always friendly and helpful.
