England, August 2015
What did you like most about Sri Lanka?
Friendly people, cultural difference, landscape, wildlife, food.
What did you like least about Sri Lanka?
Nothing springs to mind!
What is your opinion of your accommodation in Sri Lanka?
Generally good or very good. Melheim [Resort, Ella] was awesome!
What is your opinion of your chauffeur guide in Sri Lanka?
Our guide Anura was lovely. We were very lucky to have him as our guide. It was quite sad when we had to say goodbye. Some tears were shed! I have Anura’s email address and hope to keep in touch. 10/10.
What is your opinion of your flights to and from Sri Lanka?
Any long haul flight in Economy is what it is, but needs to be done if we are going to visit lovely faraway places.
Any other comments?
The grounds at the hotel at Melheim are a birder’s paradise. May be make more of this in your info. Loved it there.
Only a small point but – I was disappointed with Victoria Park [Nuwara Eliya]. The info described it as a good place for birds, but it was like going to any park with children’s play area etc.! Guess may be good in birding season.
The safaris were great. Loved them. I saw about 150 species of birds, which is not bad at all as out of season and we were lucky to see Leopard and Sloth Bear at Yala. We particularly enjoyed the jeep safaris.
All in all a great holiday and I‘ll recommend Sri Lanka and Tikalanka to friends.« All feedback
