Hanna Jackson - Debbie Jackson - John Ashworth - Upali - Walk With Jith tour in Sri Lanka

Many thanks for a wonderful holiday. We feel like we have really experienced Sri Lanka with its fantastic scenery, culture, animals, birds and friendly people.
With the holidays wildlife tours we had a super guide in Upali. He was polite, thoughtful and extremely knowledgeable – making sure that we saw as many birds and animals as possible–especially the endemics. 
Overall a will thought through and planned experience. We will definitely recommend you. Thank you.

He found the Serendib Scops Owl on a branch when it seemed impossible!

Vittorio Pedrocchi and family with Thilina.

Vittorio Pedrocchi

We have made a 7 days tour in order to see the difficult birds of Wet Zone and highlands. We are a family of five, with 3 children, and we have seen 32 endemic birds with our guide Thilina.
Thilina is a very good bird watcher, he found many birds through its calling, and he take care of our family while looking for birds. He found the Serendib Scops Owl on a branch when it seemed impossible!
The places we stayed were very good and the organization was perfect. We recommend Walk With Jith for making birdwatching tours.

A unique holiday for our honeymoon!

We were extremely pleased with the trip that we booked with Walk With Jith – our guide Upali has fantastic knowledge of all of the wildlife especially the birds and was a true professional.
We were looking for a unique holiday for our honeymoon, one that would be very special to us that we will remember for the rest of our lives and this trip certainly delivered.
Thank you very much Walk With Jith!

It was good to be guided to see all the endemics in 10 days

Peter Marsack and Janet Gardner with Saman

An excellent tour, and Saman was an excellent guide – very knowledgeable about the birds but also other wildlife and culture. Having two teenagers with little interest in birding could have made it difficult, but Saman did well to involve them sometimes and keep them interested.

With our particular interest in the birds, it was good to be guided to see all the endemics in 10 days – we would certainly not have found them all without help. We also got to see the pride Sri Lankans have in their wildlife and natural heritage, something other countries could aspire to.

Upali was amazing and a real expert bird watcher

Thanks to Jith and our local guide, Upali, we had a wonderful, 10-day tour of Sri Lanka. We learned so much about this country and its people. We took lots of beautiful pictures of scenery and birds to enjoy back home. Upali was amazing and a real expert bird watcher. We couldn’t believe all the birds that we got to see in all the parks and wetlands. We appreciated all the good email communications with Jith to plan everything just the way we wanted it. And the expedition was perfect! Thanks again! All the best! 

Organization excellent, trouble free trip, 229 species seen

Peter Boesman and Howard Laidlaw

The organization of the trip was excellent. All of the arrangements were perfect and this produced a trouble free trip. The services and knowledge of our driver/bird guide Thilina were first class and he knows very well how to find Sri Lanka’s birds. Due to his knowledge and hard work we succeeded in seeing all of Sri Lanka’s endemic bird species and many other species. Our trip list is 229 species.

He has been patient and flexible and has gone over and above the call of duty to help us.

We have spent 11 days of our 4 week holiday on a culture & birding tour with WWJ.
Our guide Nandana has been a great bonus to us. He has been good company, taught us lots about Sri Lanka’s culture and history. He has been patient and flexible and has gone over and above the call of duty to help us. Eg. Finding lost items and getting medication when I was ill. His ability as a bird guide is amazing – even though we did not expect to see so many – we have seen 31 out of 33 endemic species. The general birding experience has been fanctastic – Horton Palins and Sinharaja being the highlights of our trip. Tnaks also to Newton (Yala) and Thilak (Sinharaja) for expert driving!
