30th January 2013 to 13th February 2013

  1. The itinerary was very good for us. Because Sri Lanka (and SE-Asia) is new to us, 4 days at Sinharaja rainforest gave a good introduction to the avifauna of Sri Lanka. All in all the different habitats of Sri Lanka were well represented with rainforest –cloud forest and montane zone- dry zone with wetlands and scrub forest. Of course we missed Senarath in Sinharaja, but Sandun also did a fine job for us.
  2. With few exception we saw the birds and mammals that we could wish. It was a pleasure to be accompanied with Sandun and Senarath who are knowledgeable bird watchers who also know the plant species.
  3. Thanks to Senarath we enjoyed a very comfortable and safe transportation. His detailed planning was very competent and we could trust that all activities took place at the times agreed on. We even got help for souvenir shopping.  
  4. Danish people like to be well organized, so it will be a help to inform even better about the daily activities and about the species that are expected to be seen.
  5. All in all a fully satisfactory tour for our winter vacation.
