The Raging Birder - Sri Lanka

Indian Scops Owls

After my solo Panama trip (which was rather rough - with me getting 2 diseases and missing the main target bird by a shave), it was a nice change to have hired a private guide to organize everything for us and do all the driving, and to sleep in actual hotels without risking exposure to parasitic diseases, etc. Ramata found us a great outfit called "walk with Jith" and superstar guide Thilina Karunanayaka for this laid back yet somewhat hardcore birding and cultural tour.

Have you ever wished that you could escape the troubles of the world? Just forget all your worries and vanish into utopia… well, that was exactly what we did at the close of 2015 on our week-long Sri Lankan nature sojourn.

Having been to several parts of the Indian Subcontinent on previous trips, Louise and I decided it was time to visit Sri Lanka.  We contacted Manoj Vardhan at Vardhan's Individual and Group Tours (VIGT), who had put five trips together for us before, and he liaised with Prasanjith (“Jith”) Caldera of 'Walk With Jith' to act as our ground agent.

Tilbage i 1985 havde DOF sin første tur til Sri Lanka. Men det var først efter en succesrig tur i januar 2015, at den her næsten identiske tur blev afholdt allerede et år senere. Det blev igen særdeles vellykket, og hvordan kunne det også blive andet, når programmet bød på rundtur i dette smukke, grønne land med de store landskabelige kontraster. Lokalarrangøren var også denne gang det meget velfunderede, WalkWithJith, med dygtige guider og med kontakter til de rigtige hoteller på ruten. Logier og mad var derfor  så godt, som man kan tillade sig at forvente, når det skulle være med en fornuftig økonomi, og når vi også ville ud til nogle af afkrogene med de rigtige fuglesteder...
