“Great Trip, Excellent Guide!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

My girlfriend and I recently came back from a trip to the southern coast of Sri Lanka from May 10-13.

We found Lanka Tracker, and Sanjaya and Christine who run it together as husband and wife, through TripAdvisor. They were really helpful giving us tips and things to do in the area we were staying, while also working with us to take us to the Yala National Park for a day trip safari!

Christine is English and is super friendly, Sanjaya is a local Sri Lankan with years of experience previously at the Department of Wildlife at Udawalawe (plus he's pretty good with English too!) and they took care of us throughout our journey. They picked us up on time at the hotel, stopped at local attractions and great sites on the journey to Yala (make sure to stop at the big freshwater lake about halfway there, huge eagles, cormorants, and vampire bats hanging from the trees!!) enjoying authentic Sri Lankan food, and getting to see the awesome wildlife in the park - everything from elephants, water buffalo, crocodiles, jackals, birds of paradise, and even leopards!

Sanjaya really knew his stuff, and it was handled really professionally. We'd love to go to Sri Lanka again and hopefully we'll be able to go longer this time. And Sanjaya and Christine at Lanka Tracker will definitely be getting a call! :)

“Simply The Best...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

Lanka Tracker...a must for anyone interested in the wildlife of Sri Lanka. Sanjaya's knowledge and natural enthusiasm as a guide (born of 15 years with the Dept of Wildlife at Udawalawe) plus Christine's efficiency and knowledge of where to stay and how to travel, make their service invaluable. A great company run by lovely people. Thank you both.

“Brilliant day out - highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

We took a safari tour with Sanjaya in Udawalawe national park. This trip was without question the highlight of our trip to Sri Lanka. Sanjaya was brilliant - extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and the area, and great fun too. He knew where to look to get the best views of elephants and was able to point out an amazing range of birds. Highly recommended.

“Friendly and professional service, great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2012

My girlfriend and I booked Lankatracker's service through the internet. It was very relaxing, that we could arrange everything remotely, the safari, the lunch box, the pick up, etc,. We even asked to pick us up and drop us off in different locations, but the answer was always YES from Lankatracker. The safari itself was very exiting, we saw a lot of animals and birds, and we visited a lot of muddy and slippery tracks that the other - how to say, little worn out - vehicles were unable to cope with, so we were completely alone in these places. We could clearly feel the difference in Sanjaya's (owner and safari guide) approach and thinking compared to the locals, who do not have an English wife :), and I think if Lankatracker continues this way, they will have a lot of satisfied customers.
