2005 Tour in Sri Lanka - by Paul Seligman
Walk With Jith tours & travels is a Sri Lankan tour operator with, about ten years of experience. We organize culture,
wildlife, bird watching, honeymoon, family-holiday, nature and wildlife photography, safari tours and many other types of special interest tours in Sri Lanka. The trips are personally organized by Prasanjith Caldera, one of the country's most experienced trekkers and birders as well as a top tour guide. And also will have the rare opportunity to share experiences with local village people, visit their homes, and immerse yourself in their lives and culture. Our mission is to give you both a relaxing holiday and a taste of Sri Lanka as Sri Lankans live it.
We are not a large-scale venture and we will not promote commercial sales aimed at tourists. Rather we ensure that our rates are reasonable, and that the money you spend will directly and positively affect people at the village level. We seek to improve the lives of the people who affect & conserve the bird habitats by buying products and services including home staying, guiding services etc
