All the parts of the vacation were good. Excellent trip. (more)Lucy Hadfield
It was all exciting really from the beautiful beachside hotels to the wildlife parks. At Palagama beach the food was amazing especially when I was shown their own vegetable garden and we picked fresh vegetables that were cooked as individual curries for my dinner that evening. I felt as if I had been away for at least a month - I had seen and done so much in that two weeks. (more)Susie Barrett

We must say that our guide Kokko was a very good one, very friendly and always very punctual, helpful and knowledgeable. He made our tour worthwhile. If when we booked the tour we had been told that we would be doing it just at the start of the Ramadan period, and that it would affect our visit, we would have chosen other dates. However don't take our comments as complaints, we thought that the fact of having been in the Maldives during Ramadan was an experience which we had not had in any of... (more)Josefa Lullington

Memorable parts? Seeing leopards drinking at the waterside and sloth bears at Wilpattu National Park. Tips? We went on a wildlife tour of Sri Lanka and suggest you give yourselves a few rest days between safaris to recuperate as well as giving you more time to enjoy the resorts where you are staying. Local benefits? Safari guides and drivers were employed from the local community as were hotel staff. The hotels where we stayed were environmentally aware. The National Parks... (more)Kim Plumb

The abundance of wildlife certainly stood out throughout the trip. We saw elephants, turtles, blue whales, leopards, bears and so many beautiful birds (more)Guy Stephens
There were so many memorable experiences on our vacation...but the stand-out one has to be seeing hundreds of elephants, including many babies, at Kaudulla, because we hadn't planned it, but our driver recommended it and the guide knew exactly where the elephants were that day. (more)Mikkel Bates

From
US $3,099

Memorable parts? Snorkelling with a group of feeding manta rays for about 40 minutes. Unforgettable. Tips? Take a few days on either side - go to one of the local islands. Actually - take the days beforehand, as it's hard to imagine anything living up to the boat trip (bearing in mind that we'd never been on a snorkelling trip or anything like this, so we can't compare). Local benefits? All of the above to some extent. Guide was very aware of environmental impact, we also... (more)David O

This was the best vacation I have ever had. I enjoyed every minute. The group size of eight people was ideal. My previous visit to Madagascar (with another company) was like 'a school trip' rigid and over organised. This trip was very well organised, yet had a degree of flexibility. (more)Jean Dance
