    The safari that was arranged by Sri Lanka Day Tours was amazing, mostly due to Solomons, the tour guide and naturalist. His love for and knowledge about the wildlife, particularly birds, really made the experience special. He had an uncanny ability to spot even the smallest bird and could tell us all about it. He continued to point out birds when we were back at the our accommodation as well. We had a fantastic safari experience all around

    We had a wonderful safari guided by Sri Lanka Day Tours, our safari guide worked with the driver to show and teach us about as much wildlife as possible; we were able to spend time with the animals and away from the other park visitors which was very special. Safari driver was great! Safari experience was above expectations.
