This was a wonderful trip that certainly lived up to its promise of plenty of wildlife encounters. Sri Lanka is stunningly beautiful and has a lovely relaxed vibe.
There were many - a blue whale popping up in front of our boat, the stunning scenery, the friendly people, the narrow streets of Galle and the pristine beaches
We had a leader, Kingsley and a naturalist, Sunil. Both made sure we were well informed without being intrusive and were great company throughout the trip.
If you are British take Stirling to change at the airport (loads of change bureaus as you leave). Don't change heaps because it's really easy to use atms as you go along and every hotel took credit cards for settling bills.
Don't bother packing beach towels - every hotel had pool /beach towels for you to use.
Pack light - you will be living in shorts and t-shirts as it is so hot and humid.
An umbrella is useful for a sudden downpour or as a parasol.
In Talalla have lunch on the beach at the seafood hut - it looks basic but the food was fabulous.
Go for it - especially if you love wildlife and particularly monkeys, birds and elephants!
A wonderful holiday. Well paced with the right mixtures of activities. All the accommodation was well chosen. The two guides, one especially for the wildlife were exceptional. Very informative, funny and welcoming.
The Sinharaja rainforest is breathtaking. The eco lodge was perfect. Sleeping in converted shipping containers in the middle of a rainforest was truly magical.
Exceptional. He was organised, caring and highly professional. He was very informative and entertaining. Our second guide, for the wildlife was incredibly knowledgeable.
Take binoculars, they say it's optional, but it should be a MUST.
A wonderful experience in a magical country all made even more fun by the leaders.
I travel somewhere new every year, but this trip is one I'd love to repeat. I'd like to get back to the wild side of Sri Lanka!
Seeing the majesty of the incredible animals in Sri Lanka was definitely inspiring.
Our guide and our naturalist were very knowledgeable, helpful and just plain fun to be with.
Take good walking shoes with tread, a sturdy trekking stick for the short, steep walk, and don't forget your leech socks!
I've gone somewhere new and exciting every year for 10 years and this was by far the best experience I've had! I can't wait to book my next adventure with Exodus!
