Recommendation

DOF-Travel, Birdlife Denmark, has this year two trips to Sri Lanka. One in January and one in February. As tourleader for trip 1, 16 days in January 2019, I hereby give our agency in Sri Lanka – Walk-With-Jith – our greatest recommendations.

Hi Jith and Hetti.  You may have thought I have forgotten about you but I haven’t.  Since we were with you last year in March and April we have been traveling extensively.  That has resulted in being very backlogged in processing photos from our trips.  You may recall that even before our visit to Sri Lanka we were in Ethiopia, Egypt, U.A.E., Maldives, and Kerala and Tamil Nadu in Southern India.  On the total trip I took about 80,000 photos of which about 15,000 were in Sri Lanka alone...

SRI LANKA HAS SOME EXCITING WILDLIFE AND A GOOD RANGE OF ENDEMIC BIODIVERSITY, INCLUDING 25 - 30 BIRD SPECIES. THE LOVELY COUNTRY IS NOT EASY TO GET AROUND HOWEVER - AN INDEPENDENT TRIP INVOLVING CAR HIRE IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS!

HOWEVER MANY GOOD QUALITY BIRD / WILDLIFE TOUR COMPANIES OPERATE HERE, INCLUDING OUR CHOICE - THE EXCELLENT 'WALKWITHJITH'. OUR GUIDE, UPALI, WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE ON MOST GROUPS OF WILDLIFE SPECIES SEEN, FOUND US ALL BUT ONE OF THE ENDEMICS, WAS A VERY NICE MAN AND A VERY PATIENT ONE TOO. HE HAD TO BE. AS WELL AS FINDING US MANY DIFFICULT BIRDS HE HAD TO DEAL WITH MY PHOTOGRAPHIC REQUESTS! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

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...
