"The itinerary got us to all the endemic birds, quite a feat!  The hotels were on the whole were awesome and much better than most trips I've been on. Very professional and knowledgeable (Tour operators service). Thanks for all the extra natural history and history info. I'd recommend you and your company easily to any "keen" birder. I also was very impressed by Sri Lanka."

Tharanga Herath did a great job of setting up and leading our recent birding trip. Accommodations, meals & transportation all top notch. By relying on his many years of expertise, we maximized our time and efforts and succeeded in locating all the endemic birds of this lovely island. I'd recommend OrnithVacations without hesitation, and I'd go birding with Tharanga again in a heartbeat. Great job!!

"As a tour of endemic birds, we covered a wide range of habitats and saw nearly all of the nation's endemics. The time spent at each location was enough. The hotels were good, as was the food. I was surprised at how opulent some hotels were !. Thank you Tharanga for your guide skills and gracious personality. I learned a lot on this trip. 157 lifers ! Amazing !"
