"Thinking about the experience brings tears into my eyes. Definitely the best trip I've ever taken!"


Traveller review from Neluwa, Sri Lanka

"Thinking about the experience brings tears into my eyes. Definitely the best trip I've ever taken!"


Traveller review from Neluwa, Sri Lanka

THIS IS WHAT OUR TRAVELLERS SAY

 
 

"We happened to run into one of Haruni's good friends, who was soooo excited to meet us! He gave us a live chicken, which we ate for supper that night! It was a display of pure kindness and joy, which made us feel very, very welcome. We were able to take in some nightlife at the local bar, which ended up with us being fed some more delicious meat. The communication with Haruni before and during our stay was excellent. This was truly a fantastic and positive experience and we strongly encourage everyone to stop in at Lembeni if you have the opportunity!"

"In addition of meeting so nice and caring people (especially for our 1 year old daughter), we also met ourselves. Being in this so quiet and relax environment was for us a way to slow down and disconnect from the outside world. Being in this family who lives very simply but seems to be happy with one another helped us reconsider the way we live and consume, and how we interact with other people in our daily life. So, thanks to this family and to the people we met in the village for letting us see their life which in so many ways is very inspiring for us."

"At first, the encounter seemed awkward and I really was not sure what to expect. But by dinner time, we already felt comfortable and got along really well! For the next few days we worked on a rice field, went fishing, drove around with motorcycles, attended a local wedding, drank snake wine, sang karaoke, fed the animals, made amazing food and took care of the farm. We had the most amazing time, and five days went by way faster than I expected. I recommend this experience for everyone who wants to make the most out of traveling, and not only do the touristy stuff abroad."
