Best day ever
Mar 2020 • Couples
Had two trips booked with henry. One sigirya rock and one safari to see elephants
Unfortunately due to corona virus govt closed wildlife parks
Which was disappointing
Henry was quick to email the info and refund our fee
As arranged we were picked up at 6am by henry to go to sigirya rock
On way we stopped at dambulla caves and henry organised a guide to explain about the cave history which was very informative
Then travelled to sigirya rock
Again henry organised a guide and helpers which at first we thought we wouldnt need but in the intense heat they were a blessing assisting us up the steps.
Normally the guide said there would be 7000 people oer day there but we were two of only a dozen so felt like had place to ourselves which in a way is sad for the effect on local people
The rock is well worth climb when you get to the top and guides very good
Met up with henry again and we told him about our disappointment at not seeing elephants
As a result henry went out of his way not only to find elephants but to have an interaction
He found a spot near the road where an elephant and his mahout were bathing in the river
The mahout invited us to jump in and bath the elephant
We spent 40 minutes allowing the elephant to shower us while we groomed him in the water
Utterly fantastic
We the drove 10 minutes and henry stopped car again got out a pair of binoculars and pointed us to a wild herd of elephants 500 yds from the
Totally amazing experience one we will never forget
Best day ever all thanks to henry
Totally trustworthy reliable genuine nice guy
100% recommend to anyone
