Saw 234 species including all endemics & lots of other wildlife

<image not included>

We’ve had a wonderful holiday. We asked for a combination of birding and wildlife with some historical and cultural sites. We are very pleased with it all.

While planning, correspondence with Jith was always prompt, friendly and helpful. Arrangements in Sri Lanka have gone very smooth. Our guide, Senerath, is knowledgeable courteous and flexible when required. He has been thoughtful, helped us understand the culture and quickly understood extra things which would interest us, such as the Spice Garden, Turtle Hatchery and Elephant Orphanage at feeding time. We have been greeted with friendliness everywhere. Hotels have been the standard we expected or higher after reading reviews before booking. WIFI has been available at all hotels, sockets for electrical recharging are mostly able to cope with 3 pin square British plugs. Bottled water was always there. Senerath was excellent at finding birds with us. We saw 234 species including all endemics and lots of other wildlife which he identified and explained. The care was very comfortable and driven well. So we felt very comfortable despite all the Sri Lanka’s traffic! He’s a real professional and a delight to spend time with. We have been lucky enough to meet Jith twice during the holiday as well, and several other guides in the company, particularly Dammika who is also lively company and has good eyes.
