Walk With Jith tours was a wonderful experience for us. Our driver Dammika was a wealth of information in every aspect. His calming, friendly manner made every part of our journey wonderful. We have nothing but praise for him and are very thankful that he was our guide for our tour of Sri Lanka.  

We will come back!

Professional, friendly and always with a smile Dammika and Walk With Jith provided us with a great birding experience in Sri Lanka. Dammika gave 100% for us, so we could see all birds and also gave us a great introduction to Sri Lankan way of life and culture. 

We can highly recommend to use Walk With Jith and Dammika for your birding adventure in Sri Lanka.

Thilina was kind enough to adapt to our special requests without any bad feeling & additional cost.

our tour has now nearly ended. I send you the recommendation for your website attached:

Our tour was focused on high quality bird photography in combination with a relaxing holiday. One week in the dry zone around Yala NP has been a great success. Bird photography is not really challenging in Sri Lanka, but I would never been able to get as many high-quality pictures without Thilina.

FROGMOUTH MADE MY DAY! Lucky with good weather, nice bird flocks &devoted guides.

I had an excellent week together with my expert bird guide Susantha. He took so good care of me and found so many birds and with lot of time to study them. 

We started in Yala national park where we spotted 100 different species of birds including rarities as Sirkeer Malkoha, Blue faced Malkoha, Grey bellied Cuckoo, Marshall’s Iora, and Brahmini Starling. A good spot at Indian Little Nightjar. We also had close observations of a Leopard, elephants, deers, wild boar, wild buffalo, crocodile and more.

In Bundala national park and its surroundings, we spotted a lot of water birds, bird of prey, kingfishers, bee-eaters and more.
Highlights: A pair of Brown Fish Owl, Coppersmith Barbet, White naped Flameback, Bay-back Shrike, Rosy Starling, Grey headed Fish Eagle, Western Reef Heron, Indian Stone Curlew, Malabar Pied Hornbill…

Words alone cannot describe this incredible tour to see all endemic birds of Sri Lanka. It was extremely well planned and organized and capable to adapt to each situation or requirements. The accommodation was of good quality and very well located. Our bird guide, Saman, did an excellent work, with the help of local people and co-workers of Walk With Jith, that ensured amazing views of some of the most difficult species to get. His knowledge of Sri Lanka wildlife, with mammals, reptiles, and butterflies enriched an already worth trip.

I just can say a big thank you!

Intense 5 days. Nothing but good to say!

After an intense 5-day Sri Lanka tour, arrange by WWJ we have nothing but good to say, it couldn’t have been arranged in a better way. Beside everything else we managed to see 34 out of 34 endemic bird species and the main reason spells Thilina.

Not only is he a passionate and knowledgeable bird guide and an excellent driver, but also a great young man, with the ability to please a hard-core birder as well as his not so hard-core birding wife. As if this is not enough WWJ’s offer was about ¾ in price of comparable companies for the same itinerary. We do really recommend WWJ and Thilina.

God Bless Chamil as he really made our time a great experience!

We came to Sri Lanka for the 03rd time with the aim of bird watching. We used Walk With Jith as he is very reliable and trusted tour operator. The driver has always been experienced and quick to spot and identify all species of birds and mammals.   

Sure we will use this service in near future. Their understanding of our needs and requirements are best which makes the vacation seamless and a pleasant. 

Thank you again and we will be back.

God Bless Chamil as he really made our time a great experience!

Well organized program and everything worked very smoothly. Excellent guide, very knowledgeable and a good and safe driver of the car. We will highly recommend him.

Nice hotels in good areas well located, no disturbances during the night. Food good especially Sri Lankan food, we even got spicy food (as we like)

A little bit moist cold in our hotel room; Hill Pride Hotel, Nuwara Eliya (no heating system). Insight hotel was bit too touristic for our taste. (beach hotel last night of the trip) 

Leech socks excellent present.
