My friend and I went to Yala with Sanjaya for a daytrip this December. As he is a very experienced guide he knew many interesting stories to tell which made the ride from Marissa to Yala very short and good fun. There was heavy rain the days before, so the ride trough the park was exciting and adventurous. We drove many sideways and hardly met other Jeeps – which was nice. Sanjaya managed to find us a Lepard (wow!), Elephant, Crocodiles, Monkeys, Wild pigs and a lot more...

Besides his experience and great knowledge abut sri lanka wildlife, Sanjaya is a very nice, funny and warm person who loves what he does.

We had a wonderful experience through Uda Walawe National Park. Sanjaya is a very good driver, respecting the safety of all passengers . He knows all of the track around the park thanks to his previous experience, giving us the feeling it was only us in the park. He chose a wonderful tracker from the park to accompany him and Christine's communication during the booking process was clear and prompt.

We booked our trip with Lanka Tracker after having seen previous reviews and we weren't disappointed.

Christine, Sanjaya's wife put together as schedule for us for a 3 day 2 night trip from Kalutara to Yala National Park. We were picked up by Sanjaya at our hotel and taken by taxi to Mirissa Beach before going by jeep to Tissamaharamara where we stayed in the Tissa Lake Wind hotel for the night. Sanjaya ensured that the hotel staff saw to our every need. In the morning we had a trip on the lake before breakfast and were treated to sight if many birds pointed out by Sanjaya.

After breakfast we went off to Yala and were treated to sight of leopards, elephants, deer, monkeys, crocodiles, water buffalo and lots of different birds. Sanjaya made sure we didn't miss anything.

When we returned to the hotel that evening Sanjaya had arranged a special BBQ for us at the hotel in honour of my husband's 60th birthday, including wine.

The next day we returned to Mirissa for lunch and a swim and were then taken back to Kalutara. On the way home Sanjaya stopped for us to buy locally made baskets and spices from the supermarket where we met Christine, Millie and Sam, Sanjaya's wife and children.

It was a long journey from Kalutara but well worth it. A brilliant experience.

My boyfriend and I spend 3 days with Sanjaya and visited three national parks (Yala, Uda Walawe and Bundala national park). We book our trip on internet and his wife Christine was very helpful with all informations. Everything was arranged perfectly and accommodations and food was also very nice.

All three parks was amazing and Sanjaya is really good tracker. He was trying very hard to show us as much wildlife as possible. His knawladge about Srilankan wildlife is very good as well. We really spend 3 amazing days whit him and see a lot of animals.

We really recommend Lankatracker.

We highly recommend LankaTracker - Sanjaya is a great guide, very knowledgable and extremely friendly. He picked up our family from our guesthouse and took us to Ude Waluwe National park in his 4x4. We all had a great day. Thanks again to Sanjaya and Lankatracker.
