Safari with Asanka

Asanka is the most passionate guide, very kind and funny, and you can really see he loves and knows his job perfectly. He is well informed about the Asian Elephant’s behaviour, habitat, and their surrounding wildlife. Respecting the elephants, he does not drive too close and also tries his best to avoid the massive crowd of jeeps.

We were really lucky that our hotel booked a safari with Asanka for us. We went to kaudulla national park since the elephant herds migrate between kaudulla and minneriya national park. We didn't expect such an in depth experience on our safari. Asanka didn't just show us the elephants of the national park, but all kinds of wildlife we never would have spotted without him, including water lizards, kingfishers, monkeys and so on. he also knows his stuff about the animals and taught us a lot. Asanka really took a lot of time to make sure we got a good look at the elephant herd and all the other animals. he also told us a lot about his little village near Sigiriya, showed us some Sri Lankan street food and just managed to provide a great experience. We highly recommend booking a safari with him, if you want a real wildlife experience rather than just racing from elephant to elephant taking some pictures.
