Negotiated with Christine about our itinerary months before arriving in SL. With her guidance chose a 2 day package of Yala NAtional Park & Uda Walawe with a stop at the Elephant Transit Centre nearby. Christine offers assistance & advise on all things Sri Lankan. Nothing is too much trouble and the same goes for Sanjaya. Very knowledgeable and easy to be around for the 2 days and he really persisted to ensure we saw everything possible. We even had a brief sighting of the elusive leopard. A massive tusker that even impressed Sanjaya and an altercation in Uda Walawe with several females & a few babies that involved very aggressive, protective behaviors with lots of trumpeting & deep rumbles.... Truly unique experience which the guide admitted as being only one other occurrence. Laughable moment in Yala when the guide fell asleep for a majority of the 3 hours we spent driving on the bumpy roads...Were so glad we went with Lanka Tracker without even shopping around based on outstanding reviews on trip advisor. We wish this lovely couple all the very best for the future....my only suggestion was to get some Lanka Tracker T Shirts for souvenirs ;-)

I made a Tripadvisor account just to say how great a tip we had on our Safari with Sanjaya. We did 1 day in Yala and 1 day in Udawalawe. Sanjaya was extremely knowledgeable about both parks. Our favourite was definitely Udawalawe... We found it much more of a serene experience as we hardly saw anyone else for the whole day. Also, in Sanjaya’s jeep, we were able to go off the main path drive right up to the Elephant herds. Christine was also amazingly helpful, always replying to my emails quickly and helping me with any information she could. Jacqui and I both had a great time, thanks so much!!

Two friends and I recently spent a day with Sanjaya on safari in Uda Walawe National Park. Despite it being out of his way he picked us up in Galle right outside our front door and drove us to the park with a couple of scenic stops en route. We stopped first at the Elephant Transit Zone and then had some lunch. As we entered the park a tracker joined us. We were very fortunate to see a 'tusker' elephant who came right up to our jeep close enough to touch. We also saw a herd of elephants bathing; they retreated on seeing us but when they realised we weren't posing any iminent threat to them they returned to the watering hole and we were able to watch them quietly. Sanjaya had a fantastic breadth of knowledge of the animals and birds in the park as well as many fascinating stories from past experience. He went above and beyond to ensure we got to see what we wanted to and the day was tailored carefully to our needs.
Overall an amazing experience and one of my favourite days in Sri Lanka. Can't recommend Lanka Tracker enough!

Lankatracker were fantastic from start to finish - Christine answered promptly to emails and suggested a great itinerary for a one day safari at Uda Walawe National Park. I was originally travelling alone and wanted to be picked up from my hostel in Galle, this was no problem and Christine quoted a very reasonable price. When I asked for a last minute change so a couple more people could come, it was no problem.

Sanjaya was friendly and extremely professional, before we even got to the park we had seen stilt fishermen and thousands of flying foxes on the journey to Uda Walawe! During our safari we saw any elephants, water buffalo, crocodiles, monkeys, spotted deer, land monitors, various birds and many more. The highlight of the day was coming across a tusker only metres away from the track (Sanjaya tells us there is only a couple of tuskers in the whole park). But we were also really lucky to see a herd of elephants bathing, including a tiny baby that was less than two weeks old.

We had an absolutely excellent day, one which will always be a special memory of Sri Lanka. I hope to return one day so I can go see Yala with Lankatracker!!

Do not hesitate to book - I couldn't recommend Christine and Sanjaya more highly.

Christine and Sanjaya are brilliant.
Christine's customer service - prior to our trip she tailor made a schedule to suit are needs and helped with any further questions we had, before, during and after - just awesome.
Sanjaya gave us long days tracking to ensure we saw as much as possible. We couldn't have asked for more and would love to go back again and track with them.
Thank you for this special part of our stay in Sri Lanka.
