Megha Safari

Nuwan and his small team of drivers have been guiding in Wilpattu National Park since 2011. They'll try their best to accommodate your travel needs, not to mention the guides are good spotter! Their knowledge of the animals and command of English is also no less impressive.

Megha safari tour is the best in the park! Nuwan is very knowledgeable about the wildlife in the park. He made it a priority that we saw everything there was to see in the park. His driver was excellent, took his time and didn’t harass the wildlife. I wouldn’t go with any other company.

Best guide you can wish for! First of all we were extremely lucky and saw all of the Sri Lankan Big Five in a single full day safari with our guide Nuwan! This can of course never be guaranteed. We chose to go to Wilpattu NP rather than the more popular and touristic ones because we felt that those are overvisitted and to much exploited. We decided we rather go to a NP where there is more respect for the animal's well being and rest. This opinion was in full harmony with the personality of our guide Nuwan. He knows every species living in the park and is fully aware of their behaviour and needs. He has a deep respect and admiration for all animals, which is reflected in fact that he likes to take some pictures himself with his telelens and that he explains the guests everything they would like to know. I had the feeling we had the best guide out there so I 100% recommend to go for Megha Safari!
