What people are saying about Uva Province

Great tour, guides and service. Everything was on time and smooth. The national park was beautiful. The only complaint we have is that it's more expensive than if we'd have just arranged with local tour operators.

Very quiet pleasant and punctual transfer. The safari was great, we were said to be really lucky and saw all the wild animals and, above all, a lot of different elephants.

Jeewa was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgable about the different plants/animals when hiking up Ella rock. Really recommend this tour
