Hi Jith, Firstly let me say what an excellent enjoyable holiday we had in Sri Lanka. The whole trip was brilliant and I will be recommending my friends to go there and to use your services!

The Guide: Mr. Upali was an excellent guide and companion on our trip. He was very well informed about the birds, locations and local knowledge. He was also very knowledgeable when it came to the cultural sites and their history together with some very insightful information about Sri Lankan Buddhism. He was reliable, punctual and a safe driver. Please pass on our thanks to him for all his help.

A well planned and executed trip for nature birds and culture

A well planned and executed trip for nature birds & culture. Mr. Upali has done a very good Job with Logistics, Atmosphere and not least sharing his deep knowledge on Birds and culture. We really appreciate him sharing local customs, foods and treats.

Last but not least, Mr. Upali is an extremely committed bird watcher and managed to show 34 (All) Endemics with views, in addition we saw much more and had a good birding experience.

The choice of accommodation has been varied but always with “location” focus. We like this concept, and with Mr. Upali reminding us to bring a few beers to Martin’s Lodge we were all set!

Thank you

The trip was great; well organized and delivered. The locations were well chosen to meet the bird and other wildlife watching interests.

The hotels were good, the people friendly and helpful – delightfully so.

The guide, Hetti, became part of the family. He was / is expert at finding birds and other wildlife. Good company – in fact great fun. Score 10/10.

Thank you Jith for organizing and thank you Hetti for delivering with style.

hi Prasanjith

Yea, sorry for the delay in replying, I meant to email you a few days ago, but I am back at work already and busy again!

As you can see I have put in half a dozen pages on various Sri Lankan spots so feel free to link to whatever you want.

I tried to get as many reports and images done while at mirrisa, but now I have left the country, I probably won't add to much more at this stage, maybe just a little tinkering..

No need for Google with Saman around. Service was excellent, superb guide

28 Nov 2016

This was our first holiday of this type but it will not be the last. The program that was put together surpassed the remit to see some of the cultural highlights, visit the wildlife ‘hotspots’ and also fit in some birding.

Service was excellent from first content through to our superb guide Saman who not only continuously amazed us with his bird and wildlife knowledge (no need for Google with Saman around) but was patient with a very Bad Birdwatchers and went out of his way to fulfil various random requests.

Saw all the endemic birds... Monkeys taking our bananas at breakfast...

We had a wonderful trip. Upali was an excellent guide and so calm driving the exciting roads of Sri Lanka. He was not only very knowledgeable about birds but the flora and fauna too.

It was so good & very special for him to organize a surprise birthday cake at the hotel in Tissa. We saw all the endemic birds and also fitted in some “culture” too, The evening stroll at Kandy was memorable for the first outs and the temple, the hotel free for the monkeys taking our bananas at breakfast.

We will be back!

Thank you!
