If you want a bird trip in Sri Lanka, we can highly recommend “Walk With Jith”. Our bird guide was excellent in all meanings, skilled, perfect English, social and very helpful.

The company was easy in all contacts. Our “tailor made” trip was very well organized. We saw many more birds than we expected.

Excellent tour with Good Guide (Saman) and all endemics seen.

Excellent tour with Good Guide (Saman) and all endemics seen.

A few things that could be improved:

Kandy – Could be left out of the itinerary. No special birds there.

Yala – Total Kaos! Too many jeeps in the park. This should be registered by park authorities. Not good, stressful, for the wildlife.

Mirissa – The wetland, Kirala Kele (?), should be included in itinerary not as option for 50 USD.

Time for transports: Where stated 5 hours in itinerary, was 3 hours. Could have spent more time in Mirissa instead of at the airport. ….. Itinerary should be adjusted so mornings are spent birdwatching as much as possible, not for transport. I think we spent too much time in transport also on mornings.

Rosen Family - Sweden Birding Tour in Sri Lanka 2016-17
Rosen Family - Sweden. Birding Tour in Sri Lanka 2016-17

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, food and treats.

Last but not least, Mr. Upali is an extremely committed birdwatcher and managed to show 34 (all) endemics with good views. In addition we saw much more and had a good birding experience.

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

Dear Jith, 
Thank you for a wonderful Sri Lanka experience. The wild life has been fantastic – perhaps too up close and personal for Sara & Ann on one occasion – elephant! And your ability to patiently guide and explain will always be remembered. Your ability to adjust when the weather did not cooperate as expected was very much appreciated. We enjoyed your ability to explain Sri Lankan culture and history. But most of all we enjoyed your positive outlook on life and hope to see you again, either in Sri Lanka or Sweden or Germany. 

Thanks for a lovely time! See your new friends, you soon hopefully!

Ann, Sara & Marc.
