Join me to Sri Lanka for the small cats

Hi,

Time to put something together again and go for a tour 🙂
Is there anyone out there who is keen on going to Sri Lanka in the beginning of July. Maybe start the tour 1 July.

Primarily for the 3 smaller cats, Jungle cat, Rusty spotted cat and Fishing cat.

Birdandwildlifeteam, which have been used diligently with good results amongst people here have put together an itinerary to match my request. You can see it down below. As the cats are the most important, the tour will probably be flexible with more nights in Sigiriya if we failed to see them. Also other cool creatures will be searched for. You can see the possible species down below.

Me? a Swedish guy, 39 years old.

The cost will be like this and you are more than welcome to contact me if you want to go to Sri Lanka and share the cost 🙂

    Hi
    Are you guys going in July?
    We are thinking about the same/a similar trip in September/October

    Interesting is, that we have been proposed other prices (3’300 US Dollars per person). Seems that they have going up fast. Pax means number of people?

    Greetings

      Hi,

      Yes, PAX is number of persons.

      Going in July but have cut if short. 5 nights and only Wilpattu and Sigiriya. Due to high cost.
      I leave the highlands.

      You can for sure do this alot cheapier with other companies. But I wanted their good reputed guides with an excellent track record and therefore willing to pay more.
