minneriya jeep price

Hi we did a safari yesterday and paid 4000 each for the jeep, there were six of us, am worried our guide charged too much. Also paid 3000 each for park entry including a park guide. Any advice was this price too much? I will discuss with our guide if it was.

Thanks

Have a look here

Jeep prices ought to be only for the vehicle. Irrespective of the number of people in it. The rate listed in the link is Rs. 5000.

Entry fee for Minneriya is 15USD + surcharges.

Hi,

Yes, you paid too much for the jeep. Prices for jeeps 5000 for Semi Luxury jeeps. 4500 LKR for normal jeeps. It doesn't matter how many peoples in the jeep.

Greetings !!!

Yes, try to find the other passengers and claim back [24000-5000=] 19000 rupees altogether. WHAT a lewd creepy scammer!

All the best,

Hi everyone. An update - approached our guide, said there had been a mistake and what the price is on trip advisor. Got the money back the next day. Thanks to everyone for their advice and support!
