Sightseeinglanka is a tour operator based in Sri Lanka and 100% owned by Sri Lankans, specialized on organizing eco-friendly and extraordinary safari and authentic Sri Lanka village-life experiences - truly no tourism industry fake! Kapila, founder and leader of Team Sightseeinglanka, is a biologist.
Our ambition is to show you the natural beauty of our motherland and the traditional kindness of its people. We will not try to push you to shopping opportunities you are not interested in, but do our best to meet your expectations and to leave a good impression of our country.
We are experienced in organizing and guiding all kinds of round tours in Sri Lanka, particularly for those guests who intend to stay a few more days inside national park areas instead of taking part in the usual half- or full-day excursions.
We are very experienced in hiking and trekking activities and bird watching and supporting botanical studies, too. We intend to give our fullest support for all wildlife and nature enthusiasts, who wish to travel to any part of Sri Lanka.
We also arrange visits in villages or even overnight stay in local communities less accostumed to having foreign visitors, but only for those guests who agree to accept lower comfort standards in advance. Then we can guarantee experiences of authentic Sri Lakan hospitality you will not be able to find in "land and its people" itineraries of big international tourism industry companies.
Many of our customers love nighttime safaris. They make sense only in the moonshine, this means during the fortnight around full moon.
Our priority is the safety of our guests. This means they occasionally must accept our strong advice to adapt their behaviour when living among wild animals. During off-road parts of the journey and camping overnight stays we sometimes have to ask for the helping hands of our guests.
Please understand that we do not share our full expertise and knowledge with chatters, only with our customers in Sri Lanka. Our correspondence will be focussed on preparations for the journey. We hope you can find some inspirations for developping your own ideas and plans on our websites.
