    Minneriya is one of the most beautiful national parks in Sri Lanka. Ideal place to witness bunches of Elephants in their natural behavior. You won't feel tired by looking at their playful acts.

We Cannot praise Mahawelli Tours enough. We have just come home form 14 days touring Sri Lanka and thanks to Mahawelli we have had the most memorable experience. From my first communication with Prasad, we were guided and advised on things do and see. We faced delays with the start of our holiday due to flight delays, which meant we missed our train to Kandy. Prasad quickly arranged transport for us, which waited 4 hours for us to arrive. On day 1 we met Gamlath, he was our guide for our first week in central province. He was amazing, he listened to our needs, explained everything to us on our excursions clearly and made our hole experience more memorable. The vehicle was very comfortable and the right size for us and all our luggage, including the oversized surfing equipment. The highlight for our stay was definitely Minneriya, seeing the amazing elephants including babies! We also visited Sigiriya and Dambulla, the Veddah people and a fabulous day in and around Kandy doing the sights, all fabulous. We changed our travel plans in the end of our holiday because of the professional service we had received, booking our onward transport to Hikkiduwa with Mahiwelli and then our final airport transport. The roads and driving in Sri Lanka are crazy, it is most certainly an experience, we felt totally safe with Gamleth at all times. A massive thank you to Prasad and Gamlath for making our holiday amazing!

It was a great experience at the national park. Weather was a bit rainy. Roads were muddy. But at last we could see many elephants in herds. We had also seen birds, peacock, eagles and even few jackles.
