“Our private tour of Sri Lanka was amazing!”

Our private tour of Sri Lanka was amazing. We not only visited many temple sites and ruins of significant historical interest and value with fantastic guides who were passionate about their country but we saw so many birds and so much wildlife on the many lagoons and lakes of Sri Lanka. With that we learnt about the history of the country and the on going political struggle since the war. The guides in the national parks (Indika, Aaron, Jarome )were passionate and very informative as well as being great hosts in their care of us. It was an amazing trip. Thankyou to Raw Wildlife Encounters and Jess.
