        Yala National Park safari
        Our Merganser Yala National Park safari was fantastic. The driver picked us up from our hotel on time. He spoke English and tried very hard to allow us to see a leopard, which was successful. We also had a lovely lunch provided. Would highly recommend.

        Merganser driver-guide
        Henry made me feel very comfortable & I liked his steady driving. As a tour guide as well he speaks very gd English. When I needed to buy local chilli sauce to bring back home he drove to a large supermarket. He also helped me select the brands when I bought chocolates and chips. I had to arrange my time properly as I was heading to multiple locations and Henry was always on standby. Henry is steady, approachable, service- oriented, obliging. Very trustworthy and I’m very glad to have had him on this trip to bring me around! Will be back again hopefully with family next round!

        Excellent 1 day excursion fro cruise port
        Excellent excursion with Merganser Holidays. Well organized and without a hitch - picked up on time and back to ths ship on time. Jeep driver for the safari was also an excellent spotter-saw and ppinted out animals we would have otherwise missed. Recommended.

        A great tour of Sri Lanka
        We had a great trip to Sri Lanka with Merganser Holidays and particularly our driver Lal. He was a great tour guide, always willing to share information about the history and culture. He helped us to see all of the sights on our itinerary, but also flexible with our itinerary when we wanted to have some downtime. We always felt we were in good hands with Lal. Thanks for helping to make our trip so special!

        Great Nala experience
        A fantastic day with many animal sightings in Nala. Close encounters with elephants, many other species, prolific bird life and a delicious lunch. We really enjoyed it and highly recommend Merganser for great service and excellent value.

        Well organised.
        Extremely well organised. Convenient pick up from port. We saw a lot of wildlife including elephants but sadly no leopards.

        Look no further for your Yala safari!
        Outstanding tour. Merganser were superb in organising things for us including a few alterations to their normal program that we requested. A very professionally run company - they couldn't have been more helpful. The day itself went very smoothly and we were fortunate to see lots of wildlife, some of it at very close quarters. Our driver/guide looked after us very well. A thoroughly enjoyable day out and extremely good value for money, all things considered. Highly recommended.

        Yala National Park is DEFINITELY worth a visit.
        The visit to Yala Nationl Park was fantastic. To be able to be so close to wild elephants and their calves was a once in a lifetime experience. The driver was very good at spotting the wild life so that we didn’t miss anything. The only let down was the lunch. We were asked to preprder from a menu but when we got to the lunch place we were shown to a table and left to our own devices. Lunch consisted of lining up at a self serve table. There were more than one hundred people there for lunch.

        Awesome tours with Merganser to Yala and Colombo - excellent experience
        We arranged 2 tours in Sri Lanka with Merganser Holidays: Yala safari as part of a group off the Celebrity Cruise and a private tour of Colombo. We had 59 people in the cruise group which was split into subgroups 6 people per jeep. The communication was absolutely awesome. All of the communication was done directly by Henry Lioner, Director of Operations. Every step of the way, complete details were provided, including the pickup point, lunch detail, groups, etc. and the response to my emails was prompt, polite and thorough. Henry sent our subgroup set-up and details thru whatsup so that we knew who were in our subgroup and could communicate with each other if wanted. The tours were great, no problems whatsoever. Henry came to the ship pickup point himself but then I was surprised to see him again in Yala at lunch time where he took care of our groups (lunch was awesome). Our jeeps picked us up right from the pier, next to the ship, and dropped us off there as well. We had the jeep driver and were joined by the safari guide at Yala, who were trying their best to make sure that we saw as many animals as possible. They got us back to the ship at exactly the time promised. The Colombo private tour was fantastic as well; again, Henry was there at the pick-up point (right next to the ship). The tour guide was great, showed us everything we wanted to see and more. All in all, I couldn't be happier with Merganser tours. Everything, from the beginning to the end, was absolutely fantastic.

        Amazing safari, seeing loads of wildlife
        This was a great tour. We were picked up directly from the cruise ship and had a full day tour with lunch in the middle. Our driver stopped at various points on the way to Yala to show us wildlife and once in Yala, we had an official guide. We saw lots of elephants, including mothers with their babies, crocodiles, monkeys, a bear, water buffalo and loads of different birds. This is an amazing tour and very good value for money. We were back in plenty of time for the ship. Highly recommend

        Truly a bucket list day.
        Whilst looking for a day safari from the port in Hambantota, i found this tour. I managed to book on line with no problems. receiving prompt and polite responses to my requests. On confirmation prior to the trip. I was contacted and asked if we would like to share our tour as another couple had also expressed interest. I agreed to this and we were put in contact with them so we could meet prior to the tour. This also halved the cost for us so that was excellent. Not knowing how this would go and being very anxious about the timings. We were all understandably a little worried. We were instructed to meet at the foot of the steps of the ship and look for our sign . Within minutes we were able to identify our driver and he swiftly took us to our jeep. less that 10 minutes from leaving the ship we ere driving through Hambantota and making our way to the park. Our driver was kind and helpful, explaining everything as we went. We saw monkeys, all kinds of birds, rice fields, water buffalo and a crocodile. all before arriving at the park. On arrival at the park our driver suggested we take advantage of the toilets. once he had collected out tickets, we were off again and in to the park. Whilst we were all hopeful of seeing all kinds of animals we knew nothing is guaranteed. It wasn't long though and we came across some water buffalo in a watering hole and deer. Then as we made our way along the track. we heard elephant trumpeting. as we got closer, we were able to see 3 female elephants and a calf. literally at the side of us. It was amazing. and the start of many more sightings. We saw a leopard, more monkeys, more elephants, mongoose, Chital, crocodiles and so many different birds. Our guide was very helpful and showed us a whole array of animals, most of which we wouldn't have seen without his pointing them out. We stopped at lunch at a stop right next to a stretch of beach. Lunch had been prepared for us and we had been able to pre order what we wanted. It was very nice and more than sufficient. Once finished we were ready for more adventure and we were not dissapointed either. We arrived back to our ship on time and bid our farewells to our guide/ driver. an amazing day was had and new friendships made. what more could we have asked for.

        We had a brilliant safari day in Sri Lanka with Merganser. The communication from start to finish with Mr Lionel Henry was superb. Considering the group gradually grew to around 60 - each of us booking individually (we were from a cruise ship) - the organisation was seamless. Mr Lionel even set up a WhatsApp group and introduced us beforehand to our fellow travellers assigned to our jeep. The driver/guides on the tour were experienced and helped us spot various wildlife. Thank you Mr Lionel.

        Excellent, flexible tour company
        We arranged a customized variation on this 3 day tour to complement a cycling tour we had done with another company. Henry was very easy to deal with and customized the itinerary to meet our needs. We fitted in all the major sites and attractions at a good pace. Henry was a good driver, very obliging and informed. We were booked into the Sungreen Resort - quite good, but a hotel closer to a town centre could be a better option to try more local food. price was most competitive compared to a couple of other quotes I got. Overall, I'd certainly recommend using Merganser.

        Great experience
        We used Merganser Holidays to visit Yala National Park in Sri Lanka. We were on a cruise and chose this company for our excursion. Our tour guide was excellent. He was able to spot so many animals! The excursion included lunch, which we ordered in advance. Would highly recommend.

        Wonderful Nature Resort
        My family of 8 persons visited this beautiful, nature resort. The staff were outstanding in their personal attention to all of us. We stayed in the deluxe bungalows that were spacious and comfortable with all the amenities one needs. It was my daughter's birthday on Feb 2nd and they provided a birthday cake and all the staff and guests sang "Happy birthday" , which was special. I like their motto "Leave nothing but footprints & take nothing but memories" Special thanks to Mr. Jaya Sri Wickramasinghe, the front office manager.
