Around September annually, the receding banks of the Minneriya Lake create one of the most unique scenes you will ever see – a mass exodus of elephants who create the world famous ‘Minneriya Elephant Gathering’. The elephants come from areas beyond the reservoir and at times herds with numbers as large as 300 to 400 can be seen. The elephants here socialize, bathe and even find mates. It is a unique phenomenon of nature and can only be witnessed in this park. According to authorities the elephant gathering at Minneriya is the largest grouping of elephants at a given time in Asia, and is an event that dates back centuries.

During a whole week we have been travelling in Sri Lanka. What a marvelous experience!! The country has so many beautiful places to discover and being guided by a local tour guide is a “must” We have been very lucky that Mr Roshan has been the one that showed us his country in a very professional way. Sri Lanka is known as the “smiling nation” and Mr Roshan showed it that every single day and eager to make us feel comfortable. Thanks Sri Lanka for giving wonderful memories and Mr Roshan for his dedication. What an unforgettable experience!!
We had an amazing trip in Sri Lanka, our itinerary was great and we took in a whole range of activities from ancient cities, trekking, safaris to days at the beach. The diversity of Sri Lanka means that there is something for everyone.
We never had any issues wherever we travelled in Sri Lanka, everyone was so welcoming and friendly and can say that we always felt safe.
We really enjoyed having our own car and guide and our trip was made even more memorable by our guide Chanaka. He was a very safe driver and the car was extremely comfortable and always clean.
We can honestly say that we don’t think we would have enjoyed our honeymoon half as much without him.
His knowledge and passion for Sri Lanka are an absolute credit and he is an amazing person and tour guide who is so knowledge about the country.
He always made sure we were happy, and made the most of each day and seemed to know all the best spots to take us, away from the tourists.
He seemed to know everything and everyone in Sri Lanka including the best local spots to eat and experience real Sri Lankan cuisine.
He really was a great chauffeur, guide and photographer.
We will definitely be recommend Columbus Tours and Chanaka to friends and family for anyone who is thinking of taking a trip to Sri Lanka.

Our guide was Chanaka and he was very welcoming from the moment we arrived in Colombo Airport, nothing was too much trouble and he seemed to know everything and everyone in Sri Lanka – he was a fantastic guide nothing was too much trouble and his number 1 priority was ensuring we were happy and safe!
As for Sri Lanka, our tour consisted of 10 days sight seeing and travelling ending in 4 days resting on the East Coast – What a wonderful country, there’s no hiding away from the fact it’s been affected by the Easter attacks with tourism quiet at the moment but the people in Sri Lanka are extremely welcoming and warming and very keen to change this perception from tourists.
The sites/safaris/food/culture/tea plantations of Sri Lanka are incredible, Chanaka took us to some hidden gems and was always making sure we had the VIP treatment.
For me the service that was provided by Colombous Tours for our trip to Sri Lanka was faultless and the itinerary put together by them and Travel Counsellors was exactly what we wanted from our honeymoon, incredible from start to finish and I wouldn’t hesitate to reccomend the company or Sri Lanka as a travel destination.
I would like to thank our guide Priyal for making our trip to Sri Lanka so brilliant. He was friendly, funny and always happy, even after a whole week with me and my family! We visited so many amazing places and Priyal was very knowledgeable about all the places we visited. Our holiday was organized well. We visited so many amazing places and Priyal knew the best times to visit them. We ate at some restaurants that we would never have found on our own. The car we had for our trip was comfortable. I have no negative things to say about our time in Sri Lanka or Columbus Tours, everything was spot on. Our trip was made so much better because we had Priyal with us, he made the whole thing worth every penny. Thankyou for a great experience!
