Earlier this month myself and my wife took a day trip to see elephants at the Minneriya National Park whilst away on our honeymoon. We were delighted with the day we had after being picked up early by Visagen & Lathushan for the long drive to the national park from Colombo. We could not recommend this trip enough and it was made even better with our hosts. They were fantastic throughout the whole day and we will be sure to use them again when we return to Sri Lanka in the future. The trip was good value for money, it is a long day but it was well worth it with the experience that we had. Visagen and Lathushan even took us to see Sigiriya Rock as well which really added to our experience. Thank you ever so much to Visagen and Lathushan for making our honeymoon extra special!!
Long road to reach the park from Colombo, but worth it! Seen a lot of elefants, buffalos, lizards, large variaty of birds, turtles and even a crocodile. The safari experience is not very crowded (as I heard Yala is) and there was enough time to admire the park and the animals. The driver from Colombo to the park was reallt skilled and the guide was nice, but needs to improve his english a little bit. All in all, don’t regret the money I spent, even though I paid double as solo traveler.
Our guide Jeev was amazing. I actually enjoyed interacting with the guide more than the excursions. As far as the excursions we enjoyed the boat tour. It was informative and interesting. We also enjoyed the restaurant that the guide chose to eat lunch. Mama Coral Reef.
Dispite the rain, our guide Ruwan was on time to meet us at the gates. We had a fantastic day, seeing elephants and many other animals and birds in luding a croc! This safari is a fantastic memorable experience not to be missed.
The trip was very well organized. The contact was smooth. We got a plan over WhatsApp. During the Safari we had our own Jeep for 3 of us. We were accompanied with a driver and a guide who was very informative.
