Thanks so much for sorting the day’s sightseeing in Colombo on Monday. It was really interesting.
While it’s fresh in my mind I thought I’d send you my feedback. Overall we had an amazing holiday. Kids said it was one of the best ever!
Hasantha the driver/guide – good English, knowledgeable, drove safely, listened to what we wanted to do, nice with the kids. Would recommend.
Leopard safaris – the highlight of the trip. Absolutely fantastic. Can’t praise it highly enough. I am emphatically not a camper (I would stay exclusively in Amans if my husband would agree!) but I loved it. The tents were immaculately clean, as were the loos (plural for our tent!), shower etc. The food was genuinely amazing, even before you take into account it’s cooked in a tent on essentially a large camping stove. Our guides, Pila and Praneeth were fabulous. So knowledgeable, amazing at spotting the animals, brilliant at driving (the kids LOVED driving through the crocodile-infested lakes). We saw leopards, a sloth bear, crocodiles, monkeys and stunning birds. The 5 men at the camp were all nice, kind, thoughtful and interesting. An absolutely fabulous trip.
Cape Weligama – super hotel. Brand new so everything was immaculate. The half board was an amazing option as it even included wine!! The food was excellent and there was a good dive centre. The personal butler was a nice touch – he was very helpful.
All in all a magical trip, thank you.
