Safari with Asanka

Sri Lanka
|
Asanka is the most passionate guide, very kind and funny, and you can really see he loves and knows his job perfectly. He is well informed about the Asian Elephant’s behaviour, habitat, and their surrounding wildlife. Respecting the elephants, he does not drive too close and also tries his best to avoid the massive crowd of jeeps.

Asanka was amazing! He was very friendly and knowlegeable. His love for his job really showed. He stopped whenever he saw any animals or lizards or birds - such a keen eye! We stayed for the sunset and he gave us more time than we paid for. It was a memorable trip. I wish him well!

We booked a safari trip through our hotel in Sigiriya and Asanka was our guide. He really was fantastic throughout the trip and very knowledgeable/ caring for the animals and the environment. Asanka took us to Kaudulla national park and we saw many animals there including elephants, giant squirrel, Buffalo, crocodiles and a variety of birds just to name a few. I’d highly recommend Asanka to anyone wishing to do a safari trip as he’s highly knowledgable, very respectful and a genuinely nice guy to spend half a day with!

Wow. Reviews don’t lie. Asanka was the best of the best when it comes to safari in Sigiriya area. We are so glad we chose to visit Kaudulla park with him. He was so communicative and easy to plan with via what’s app. We selected our timing needs and he gave us a very fair price. He picked us up the following day and we joined with one other traveler for our safari. He was so knowledgeable and had a fantastic eye for spotting all sorts of animals - crocodiles, 2 various types of eagles, peacocks, roosters, iguanas, monkeys, it was amazing. In terms of the elephants he was so respectful with the animals which was a relief because many drivers were so inconsiderate- driving fast and close to the elephants where you could tell the animals were fearful. He always got us as close as possible but with consideration for the animals- very slow and cautiously. When they were walking and migrating he stayed back instead of zooming close like all these other rude drivers because he told us if we stay they will walk right in front of us- and they did!!!!!! Magical. He knows is stuff and has a heart of gold. Highly highly recommended. Thank you Asanka!!
