      Saw different wild life and activity.
      Tharindu was an excellent driver and guide. He was very knowledgeable about where to find the wildlife including the leopards. He also stuck to the lesser tracks rather than the main straight roads that run through the park that are far less scenic. Much better than the tour we had the previous day that we’d organised through our high-end hotel (which was more expensive). Recommend morning over afternoon tour although you do see different wildlife and activity depending on time of day.

      Great Safari, Much Recommended
      I had a fantastic full-day safari with Tharindu as my driver and guide. He is really good at spotting animals and tracking their movements - I saw two leopards, got close to many families of elephants, and saw all the other must-sees at Wilpattu National Park.

      10/10 amazing experience.
      Excellent day visiting Wilpattu! We got great value from our full day tour. We saw tons of leopards, elephants, water buffalo, mongooses, deer, birds, etc. and even the elusive leopard! Tharindu is really passionate and knowledgeable about the wildlife. I love how he protects animal welfare! The provided breakfast, lunch and snacks were great too. Overall, we were so happy with our experience and all the amazing animals we got to see.

      Adventurous full day safari in Wilpattu
      Travceylon was very helpful in arranging a full day safari to Wilpattu for us. The contact was adequate, flexible and quick via whatsapp and we had a lot of fun in the national park with our guide, Tharindu, and our driver.

      If you have a couple of hours to spare, do this walking tour, you won't regret it
      Spent a very enjoyable couple of hours walking round Galle Fort. We learned a lot about the long history and culture of the Fort and Sri Lanka too. It made our stay even better as we were aware of the heritage of the place around every corner. Seeing the turtles was an unexpected bonus. It was an easy (if hot) walk and I would recommend it to anyone

      Great safari experience
      Booked an evening safari at very late notice and therefore expected some problems or it not to happen. However, very pleasantly surprised when got a reply to my query regarding contact point within a minute. The safari ran smoothly and ‘my driver’ joined us with no issue. An extra pair of eyes is always helpful as well. The jeep did fave a mechanical failure after hitting a stone but a replacement arrived in 10 minutes. Having tried 2 vehicles I can say they are pretty comfortable given the terrain. This varies and even though in dry season we passed through water which adds to the safari experience. We saw plenty of wildlife which was pointed out and the driver/guise had a second sense fo altering the vehicle position for good viewing/photos. We saw elephants, samba and spotted deer, crocodiles, mongoose, various reptiles (no snakes sadly). Plenty of birds seen which was my particular interest. No jaguars but guide said they had seen in the morning. We stopped halfway for comfort break where there was also a viewing platform over lake. The toilets are in good condition. We actually got over 4.5 hours of time as I arrived early. I was really impressed that when I got back to my hotel they had called to say my room key had fallen out in jeep. And arrangements were underway to sort out.

      Hurulu safari park - thumbs up
      We did the 3 hour safari at Huluru. We saw loads of Elephants, birds, buffalo and deer. The walk up to and view from the observation tower was nice to stretch our legs and take in the park. The drivers take you really close to the animals but are also respectful of their space. It’s a bumpy ride but having the open roof makes it easy to get some great photos. Recommend taking a 100-400mm lens for this trip, sunscreen, water and a big shady hat.

      Fabulous park for birding
      Booked this safari on line. Went this morning (12march 2024) at 6am. Prompt pickup from our hotel. Vehicle was in good condition and our driver really treated the vehicle well. He was also knowledgeable about the birds and stopped to tell us about some of what we were seeing even before we had reached the park, and collected our guide. He also seemed to know almost without us saying anything, when it was time to move on. Beautiful park for bird life - truly amazing. The larger animals we saw; jackals, buffalo, spotted deer, blackfaced grey langurs, and macaques were a bonus on top of all the bird sightings. As for the beach view point - what a gorgeous surprise.

      Amazing trip
      We booked this trip less than 24 hours before we went. Everything was organised very quickly and smoothly. It was also the cheapest trip I had seen from Ella to Udawalawe. Our driver was lovely and the safari drive was incredible. We saw lots of elephants and wildlife. Would highly recommend.

      Good tour
      Very good tour. Driver worked hard to make sure that we saw as many animals as possible and to explain what they were. We took the afternoon tour.

    Human habitation is minimal in this area. So this is great place to experience nature.
    You can see the sea, swamps, cactus and other plants and birds. Traveling here during the day can be a daunting task. But here in the evening or in the morning visitor can have a wonderful experience . This is a must visit place if you are under stress due to overwork
