I had a a safari with vijith in Kaudulla national park he is really professional,friendly,talkative, and first of all he cares about animals especially the elephants he knows what makes them angry and sad he didn’t provoke them as some safari guides did, in our safari we did see like dozens of elephant
And he helped me to spot kingfish bird and we also saw peacock,monkeys,and some deers but we couldn’t get closer as they ran away after 3or 4 hours of wounding in Kaudulla national park we went back to our homes and in our way back we spotted an elephant passing the road he stopped immediately to take these priceless shoots even he helped me in photographing these unforgettable moments if you are an animal lover especially the elephants I do recommend Mathisha jeep safari Dambulla
we were very lucky to have Vijith as our driver and guide for our safari. He is extremely knowledgeable about the animals and the area. He took us to places where we were the only ones around surrounded by more elephants than you could count. This was made possible by Vijith and his extensive knowledge of the park. He speaks excellent English and his enthusiasm for the animals really shines and makes for a brilliant trip. We strongly recommend him as a driver and a tour guide. I doubt you would be able to find anyone better in the area.
Mathisa picked us up while we wanted, took us to the safari and already there on the way showed us interesting things. In the safari he tried to find the interesting animals and stopped patiently with us next to each one. It was important to make us feel comfortable and he cared about us all the time. On the way back he stopped with us at local shops along the way and it was a really nice atmosphere. In the end, he took us back to our Guest House and ended a great day. Mathisa also drive very carefully. We highly recommend traveling with him on a safari trip!
We travelled together a few days to get from Negombo to Kandy with stops in Anudharapura, Sigiriya and Dambulla. On the ways to our destinations Vijith showed us many interesting spots. We went to Ritigale, Mihintale, to the Kaudulla National Park for a Safari and so on. So Vijith pretty much planned our days with a good feeling for times to rest;) We saw old ruins, elephants, temples, fruit markets and so on. We got coconut and mango from the street and could ask for everything we needed. Even if it's a more expensive way to travel it's worth to get advices from an expert and also pretty convenient. We've had a very fun time and recommend to do tours with Matisha! Thank you very much for so many adventures.
We really enjoyed our trips with Vijith. He was a lovely friendly, honest guy who went out of his way to do extra things for us. We enjoyed riding in his safari jeep with the breeze in our faces watching out for wildlife and seeing everyday village life. We travelled with him to Sigiriya, the wonderful monastery ruins of Ritigala and had a great safari at Kaudulla where we must have seen about 200 elephants. I would definitely recommend him!
