  • We became aware of this park because it was not too far from our beach hotel. We did a safari with Chaminda and were not disappointed. We were in constant exchange via whats app to quickly clarify when we do our safari. The weather was not so good at that time. Lots of rain. This service almost quickly decide to make the safari today, would not have been offered to you when booking through the hotel. Quite apart from the price level. We were picked up by a driver at the hotel and taken home to Chaminda. There we were greeted very nicely with a cup of tea. After that we started. We had a driver for the Jeep and Chaminda was sitting in the back of us. That was great. He was able to show us a lot and also explain to the different animals. We liked the park very much. Wonderful animals and nature. The highlight was to see an eagle up close while eating. Many thanks to Chaminda. It can be reached via whats app +94 71 309 5115 and by email chamindaweerasooriya@gmail.com
