During our stay in Dambulla we were looking for a Safari Tour and found Kalum's contact details on Tripadvisor.
He responded within a few minutes and was able to organize a tour for us to Kandulla National Park for the next day.
His tour guide Jeewan picked us up at the hotel on the next day with his jeep which was already a great experience until we reached the National Park.
The tour in there was even more impressive as we saw plenty of different animals and more than 200 elephants. In addition, Jeewan was very knowledgable about all the differnt animals and a great and super supportive guide during the whole day.
For that reason, we decided to ask him as well for a sunrise hiking tour to Pidurangala Rock on the next day. After a 4am pick-up we had a great hike to the top of the mountain with an amazing sunrise view.
Thank you again Jeewan for making these two days so special and an unforgettable memory!
We had the most wonderful time with Kalum on our safari today! Not only is he a true professional, he is also a lovely person - funny and personable. I simply cannot speak highly enough of our full experience today. We were very well taken care of, and saw hundreds of beautiful elephants plus many different species of birds, water buffalo, monkeys and more. What more could we ask for? You will not go wrong booking with Kalum Jeep Safari!
Where should I start... From the minute one Kalum goes out of his way for you, for your tastes, your desire to discover and does everything possible to fulfill your dreams. Mine, to see a wild Elephant.
At the beginning of the Safari there were a lot of cars around. We started the Safari with all the rest but at some point Kalum changed the direction. He said we were going to a special place. Very bad road and no other cars. The rest of the Jeeps were driving the easy road.
Finally! An ELEPHANT!! And not only one, a group of 36. There were female elephants, male elephants and babies. The whole group for us alone. NO OTHER JEEP NEAR !!! We were able to enjoy them 100% all the time we wanted.
When we decided to continue we met the rest of the Jeeps, those who had followed the easy route. And we saw more elephants again, but this time from farther away and with many more people.
Kalum decided to follow an alternative route, more complicated and thanks to that he made me a very special gift.
I could never thank you enough.
Very responsive on WhatsApp, picked up from our hotel in Sigiriya by our driver/guide Jeewan who was very friendly and spoke good English. He took time on the safari to point out beautiful birds and lizards before taking us to the water where there were well over 100 elephants! Fantastic experience having time to sit and watch them feed and drink. Kept a respectful distance from the elephants unlike some other jeeps in the park, would recommend this company!
We had a great elephant safari! We saw so many elephants, >100 in Kandulla national park. It was so nice to not be rushed round and they were very respectful of the animals. We had a real fun time and spotted so many other animals: monkeys, chameleons, Sri Lanka's national bird!
We also arranged via Kalum to have a transfer back to Negombo with one of his colleagues. Unfortunately his colleague was unable to take us at the last minute so Kalum dropped everything and took us to Negombo himself! Thank you Kalum! Great guy!
