A mix of amazing wildlife and safaris, great food, beautiful beaches, great snorkelling, breathtaking scenery including natural waterfalls surrounding our luxury and Eco accommodation, cooking classes, beautiful temples, a strategic fort and fishing lagoon, an exciting train ride from Kandy to Ella, climbing Little Adam’s Peak and Sigirya, having time to relax and paint the scenery or have a drink in the cafés. Plus a charming guide / chauffeur who is experienced to take the strain out of getting from A to B.
The suggestions Dani gave of a selection of different accommodation and excursions added to the enjoyment of our holiday experience. Dani was also willing to negotiate my changes and suggestions to the itinerary.
We had to book our own flights which was a new experience for us. We did not find it easy to coordinate the flight times with our itinerary without a degree of risk and worry that the tour dates including provisional hotel bookings would tally with the booking our flight times. The van could also have water bottles and WiFi.
Excellent driver and guides, intelligent and knowledgable with good English. They pointed out things and could engage in discussions on a range of topics. They were also kind, caring and interested in showing us around and answering our questions.
Sri Lanka is a gem of a country with unspoilt nature and wildlife. It has so many things to experience all in one country! This holiday was our second tour and there is still more we’d like to see on a tour in the future!
The most memorable part of our trip was the nature and wild life: beautiful birds, fish, monkeys, elephants, and even a leopard just a few metres away in full view! Plus the scenery was varied and unspoilt.
