Absolutely amazing experience from start to finish. The safari was incredible and being so close to so many wild elephants was unforgettable.

Game driver was superb at bringing us to the locations where we could be closest to the elephants and made a real effort to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. The service was first rate.

Highly recommend for safari tour if in Dambulla or Kandalama.

We made this tour on my birthday. The team was super attentive by making me a cake. It was really super! The guide was also excellent by explaining us everything we saw from the multiple birds until the elephants. He also had so much patience for our photos to the animals.
If someone wants to make a safari, you should talk with this company!

Our game driver / guide was Samira. He was attentive to our requirements. I am a keen photographer and Samira ensured that I got the best shots possible and didn't try and hurry things along. He was very informative and happy to share his impressive wildlife knowledge. I was impressed that the elephants were given a huge amount of respect and they didn't seem to mind us quietly observing them. We were provided with a bottle of water and food at the start of our trek but I was so captivated by the entire experience that the food wasn't touched. Even on our journey home after leaving the park, Samira stopped several times so I could photograph various animals. This meant that we were a little late returning to our hotel which didn't cause us a problem but I was more concerned for Samira. I would definitely say that Samira goes that extra mile. I would recommend this trip and Samira, as a guide, without hesitation. Thank you!

We had a fantastic time on this trip - we were picked up from our hotel in our private jeep. We were given a snack and water on the way to the park. At the park, we saw probably about a hundred elephants and they were amazing! There were a lot of jeeps there, but most were pretty respectful and we didnt feel that the elephants were impacted by all of us watching them - they actually came up to the jeeps and were grazing near us for quite some time. Our guide told us that the elephants can choose to get to the water at various points at the park, so do not have to be in that area, so that further reassured us that they were not impacted by us being there. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgable about the nature and wildlife in the park. I highly recommend doing this, it's so great.

We were delighted with our safari and felt lucky to have such an excellent guide/driver in Samira. His knowledge of wildlife and the local environment was really impressive and we learnt a great deal. He was incredibly patient and always checked with us before making bing on so we could take our time looking at the elephants and all the other am make we were lucky enough to see. We always seemed to be in pole position to see the wildlife yet we felt he was really respectful towards the elephants, ushering other jeeps to back up to leave a clear pathway if any elephant wanted to cross. We saw over 200 elephants that afternoon plus a crocodile, several types of eagle, herons, storks and endless other birds, monkeys etc. It was wonderful. We were delighted that we had chosen this company and happily recommend them.

The whole trip was fantastic from the start to finish. The guide and jeep arrived early at our hotel. We got water and the jetp was clean and fairly comfy. He explained the plan and took us to the park where the most elephants were likely to be seen. We saw over a hundred including young ones in se ral different groups. We got close but only because the elephants approached us. The driver stayed further away than some other vehicles and pointed out lots of birds and other wildlife on the way. The whole trip was a good three hours and we all had a great time. 3 adults including parents and a university age daughter. Would totally recommend!

A really enjoyable safari afternoon with our guide who spotted many a hidden animal as we ventured through the park.
The pickup/welcome was very warm and plenty of water and snacks provided.
We got to observe many an elephant herd along with their young offspring.
I highly recommend this company.

We booked this private jeep safari and from pick up moment till the end of the trip we had a great experience. The driver, Samira, came to our hotel to pick us up and brought a light lunch, some water and a light snack for us. We had booked our trip to Minneriya NP, but at the start of the day we were informed that we had better chances to spot elephants in Kaudulla NP and that was no lie. We had the chance to see +200 elephants and our driver was a very good animal spotter. He did his very best to find the best (quiet) spots and to explain the different type of animals we saw during our safari. At the end, we held a little break at the lake where water melon was served, before heading back to the hotel. Great afternoon and definitely recommended!

From the moment we were picked up the journey was excellent in all the ways. Our guide was the best and he knew how to spot the best in the National park. The prices were reasonable. Country is now peaceful. I recommend this to anyone.

Went on an afternoon tour of Minneriya National.Park today.
Admittedly the park was crowded with jeeps but everyone parked quietly and a good distance from the elephants.
Our guide was extremely helpful and obviously loves the area and the wildlife.
He was very excitable and good company.
Fabulous tour and tour guide.
