We had an amazing safari with Indu, who spent lots of time explaining about the wildlife, not only making sure we saw the elephants, but all the other wildlife in the park. We saw a lot of elephants very close up, as well as about another 30 animals and birds. A beautiful day trip I would highly recommend!

Lanka Trackers worked closely with us to design the tour to be all that we hoped for. For 16 days we visited temples, climbed Adam's Peak, had high tea in Nuwara Eliya, rode the train to Ella, went on three safaris (sited 3 leopards), visited Galle, and enjoyed the beaches along the Indian Ocean. Our home stays were beautiful, clean,... More

Indinul (our driver and guide) was very pleasant and knowledgeable and easy to chat to during our 2 day safari. Sanjaya was... More

Around noon we have been in Elephant Transit home, where are the elephant orphans. After that we went to the restaurant where Indu and our driver Thushara took us. After lunch we went... More

I have visited this park before a few years back but it was the average tourist tour, these guys however provide above and beyond treatment and maximum time in the park. (6 hours) Indu picked us up and stayed with us all day, such a nice knowledgeable young man. We had a great day and saw everything we hoped to... More

We had an amazing experience with our guide who took us away from the many tourists and showed us some hidden spots at the park. Not only did we see wild elephants but also many birds, and even crocodiles! Sanjay knows all the animals and you can tell he enjoys taking you around and explain about the wildlife. Would definitely... More

Awesome trip to national park. We were picked up at the morning from the hotel in Mirissa. Driver/guide told us a lot of interesting stories about Sri Lanka. Also he stopped near several interesting points on our way. Then we arrived to Elephant Transit Home Orphanage exactly at feeding time. And after quick lunch safari started. We saw a lot... More

We have just come back from our 15 day trip with Lanka Tracker and we cannot recommend them enough! From Christine helping to plan everything and being so easy to talk to and Indu and Sanjaya driving/guiding us around the island, everything was perfect! Our main aim was to see wildlife in Sri Lanka and Lanka Tracker excelled beyond everything... More

We wanted to book a safari to Udawalawe park last minute, and Christine was very helpful and was all sorted for us, including transport from Colombo and overnight stay. Sanjaya took us on the safari and was excellent. Definitely recommended.

Here is the short version of my review: Lanka Tracker are simply fantastic – Christine (who is an expat Brit) is so very very helpful and very very organised and responsive. The whole trip (21 days, 2 adults and 2 kids aged 13 and 10) went off without a hitch. Sanjaya (her husband, a Sri Lankan national) is a fabulous... More
