  • From our first contact with Mahesh the service was outstanding. He made sure we knew how to get to his place with the best route possible and even checked on us in the morning to make sure we were not lost. The birdwatching was spectacular. Mahesh kept saying names of different kinds of birds while we sat and enjoyed the views. It was an incredibly relaxing way to spend an early morning enjoying nature.
  • Excellent bird watching. How it works. You go calmly around the area with one stop and a short walk. We manage to see monkeys and a lot of different birds.
  • I had a good time with Mahesh. The activity was very good! I was able to visit the lake and the many birds that live there. Mashesh helped me find the different species using binoculars. Supporting his explanations on his guide containing all kind of Sri Lankan birds (complete and well illustrated book), the information was clear and interesting. The activity ends with a trot in the water and the earth, climbing a rock to admire the beautiful landscape on a warm floor. (because I did the activity in the afternoon) What happiness! Mahesh, listening, smiling, fun, kind and caring guide. He will have the primary task to put you at ease and make you have a good time with him so that he can transmit his passion. Lover of birds, Lover of aquatic spaces or looking for an great activity in good company, I recommend this one. What beautiful memories in memory and image because Mahesh wants to capture this moment through a photo alone or in his company. Without pressure because he always askes before. Thank you for this trip through the warm stone, the birds, the water lily ride and the calm to enjoy all these discoveries. A real enjoye visitor
  • What a wonderful way of starting a day, but than visiting quietly Kalametiya reserve ny boat with Mahesh. He knows the birds very well, points them out shares his enthusiasm and passion. In 2 hours we saw 54 species. Mu favorite were the stock billed kingfisher and pheasant tailes jacana with also the grey heade fish eagle. Thank you Mahesh for a wonderful morning
  • Beautiful place and wonderful assortment of birds. Sunrise tour is perfect way to start the day.
