This place organizes all your safari details, they pick you up from the hotel, the driver actually acts as the guide and manage everything. Then they even take you to Elephant transit home close to national park free of charge. Overall very satisfying. I would surely recommend.

Hi, may I know if this place offers free accommodation and meals for our driver? Thanks!
Hi, no free accommodation to the best of my knowledge for your driver but just email Tilly at Pavana, he will advise. Have a great time in beautiful Sri Lanka.

Hi, does this resort accept card payments for the rooms & safari trips? Thanks!
Hello, yes I believe it does. Just email them to check and i am sure you will receive a prompt reply I'm sure. The park entrance you pay at Uda Walawe itself and you can do cards there definitely.
