We were extremely satisfied with the whole experience, the room was clean and comfortable. We had the one day Jeep safari, the park was truly amazing. San Jeewa is one of the best host I have met in my life. I can recommend this experience for everyone.
I spent a few days at Sanjeewa's hotel and did some wonderful safaries with him. He is a great host and makes you feel cosy really quickly!
We booked the tour through trip advisor.
They contacted us by Whatsapp and we also booked another tour in the morning for a hike.
After this first tour, the jeep driver told us that due to the holidays it‘s very busy in the Safari Park these days.
So He asked for the entrance fee in advance for the afternoon tour - so we could skip the que later.
We had to give him 10.000 LKR, I asked him twice if this was the correct amount. He said „yes“.
I checked online: entrance fee was maximum 8.000 LKR for two.
Later someone else picked us who didnt speak english at all. We also met the jeep owner who also couldn‘t answer to my question why we had to pay 20 % more than the actual fee was.
I asked the manager via Whatsapp for my overpaid money, he said he would organize it and get it back to me. Nothing happenend until the day we left.
Then the manager said some weird stuff like „I wasn‘t paid by trip advisor yet.“ and „Give me a sri lankan bank account number and I will transfer the money.“
It‘s not much money, we know that. BUT we just hate to be scammed and tricked!
We would never ever book a tour again with this company.
