Hunting upside down! Ceylon wilderness updates

Hunting upside down!

Sun shining down on the lush green wilderness. A small worm comes out of hiding for a mid-day snack not knowing what's hanging on the tree trying to make him its snack.

Velvet fronted nuthatch (Sitta frontalis) is a chirpy little passerine bird with a unique violet coloured top coat. Walking up and down or even upside down on branches with ease using their strong claws they are constantly in the lookout for little insects to munch on. They can be found in the south and south-east Asian regions of the world.

 

Much more than just a great place to stay

"Thanks to our guide Avinka we had five great safaris staying four nights just after reopening this February. The staff made us feel so very welcome during the entire stay.

The safaries are just wonderful, and having a great guide in your vehicle makes a big difference. Avinka can spot animals you would never see and we were even lucky enough to sight leopards on the trees, close to our vehicle, and also running through the field. The wildlife is so exciting that you will have a great experience even if you don‘t see any leopards. We also had a great driver, which is essential if you drive through difficult territory. You are being taken care of the entire time, so even for those who do safaris for the first time, you will always feel safe.

The camp itself is very comfortable, you get everything you can think of, and on top of the great food being served with so much attention and friendliness. You also get wonderful vegetarian and vegan options. They put on bonfires at night, which makes it unforgettable.
When booking and making plans, you get great support from the headquarters, even if it gets difficult since you have to change your plans.
The best thing what can happen to you at the end of a vacation is when you are a bit sad to leave the place, having experienced something to remember forever, and the team does everything for this to happen. Thank you so much"
