So I started my career from the hotel industry & later on moved to travel industry. I’m well experienced in this field & eager to learn more in the industry to offer my customers the Best I could to have a lifetime travel experience. I enjoy working in the travel industry as we keep on learning & experiencing new things about our motherland while meeting new people from all around the world. My main interest is discovering wildlife in Sri Lanka & exploring more into non-touristic areas to learn unique experiences in order to offer my customers an unforgettable holiday.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We are the first company in Sri Lanka to join the World Animal Protection Organization. Therefore we want to promote animal-friendly experiences which don’t cause harm to animals. We care about this island, and our aim is to promote sustainable tourism and development and protect the nature. Additionally, we support local communities. We promote a village and school visits, and interactions with kids in the form of educational holidays for families, which help to support local schools. We also like to promote unique, less developed sites and accommodation."

How did you get involved in travel?

"After my education, I had the interest of joining the Hospitality & Tourism industry as my family was already in the field & I love travelling around the country. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"My best experience was at the Wilpattu National Park during a morning session when you get to see the birds and the wild animals roam free in their own wilderness, meantime you get the chance of seeing the Sri Lankan Leopards which was the best of all. "
