Roshan is an excellent driver and safari guide. He ensured that we saw as many animals as possible on our safari. He was ethical and respectful when seeing the animals, stopping at a distance. We had a great time. We also had him take us to Ritigala and Polonnaruwa. Highly recommended.

Wowee! We joined an elephant jeep safari on the very first day our holiday and it was truly the best experience I could have had. Having loved elephants all my life this trip was heaven. Of course, there were lots jeeps, tracking the roaming elephants and it did seem intense at first, as we were so excited at trying to spot them in the vast reserve. But we finally came across a group of 50+ elephants grazing with their young and we did not disturb their peace. It was wonderful to watch them so close up. I will never forget this experience.

We had a fantastic experience on our 2.5 hour safari - we saw several herds of elephants, a bull elephant, a pregnant elephant and a baby elephant. We even saw an elephant with a tusk which isn’t very common in Sr Lanka. The driver was great and the vehicle comfortable. This had been pre arranged by our tour guide so I’m not sure which company we went with but we started at a hotel called Cinnamon Lodge. Obviously there is always a risk you might not see the elephants... but certainly one worth taking.
