Cradle Mountain & the Walls of Jerusalem

My 16 year old son and I have just finished the Cradle Mountains & Walls of Jerusalem walk and, while driving home, we were reflecting on why it was so rewarding and so much fun.

We expected spectacular scenery and plant life, and they were spectacular. We expected challenging terrain and weather, and they were challenging. We didn't expect such exceptional guides and that is why I am writing to you.

Tim is obviously a very experienced, capable and knowlegeable guide and I probably can't tell you anything you don't already know about him. He is a thorough professional. We always felt safe but challenged. I was impressed with his efforts in finding us interesting things to see and do in the Walls when the weather didn't allow us to visit the usual places. I also thought he handled the stop-over in Mole Creek due to flooding with a good combination of leadership and humour and it turned out to be a trip highlight!

So, the thing is, the environment we visited was every bit as spectacular, challenging and rewar ding as we had hoped for. What made this holiday exceptional was your wonderful guides.My son and I have thanked them, but we wanted to let you know as well.

Sri Lanka is Soaring

27/02/2013

Elephants in Sri LankaSri Lanka is soaring as a destination in its own right, now elevated into the spotlight after landing in the #1 spot on the coveted Lonely Planet Best Country List in 2013. More than just an extension or stop over from India, Sri Lanka has its own unique charm that should not be overlooked.

After over two decades of civil war and political turmoil this magical island is now open for international travellers to discover. Low-cost flights and affordable prices offer amazing value for money and allow you to truly get off the beaten track while exploring divine ancient cities, pristine natural landscapes and diverse national parks.

Cycle through misty highlands and dense jungles, take a wildlife safari in Minneriya National Park to spot wild elephants, white water raft down the Kelani River, trek through tea plantations and rice paddies, relax on divine coastlines, tour the breathtaking grandeur of the ancient city of Anuradhapura, or sample delectable dishes with chef escort Peter Kuruvita.
