Sri Lanka Nature & Wildlife

This 2 week Sri Lanka tour is focused on discovering the best of Sri Lanka's nature and wildlife and includes a lot in a short space of time.

Begin the trip with a night at Horathapola Estate, visit Wilpattu National Park before heading east to Sri Lanka's ancient capitals - a much drier landscape than further south.

Visit Minneriya National Park, famous for its elephants and climb the steps up Sigiriya Rock Fortress. From Sigiriya, head to Kandy, Sri Lanka's cultural capital and visit the lovely botanical gardens at Peradeniya.

2 nights are spent at both of Sri Lanka's most well-known National Parks - Udawalawe and Yala. Chances of seeing leopard in Yala are high, with the world's densest leopard population.

From Yala, head to the beautiful Galle Coast for a few nights by the beach, with a whale watching excursion in season (Nov - Apr), with the chance to see Dolphins and Blue Whales.

Also included is a half day excursion to historic Galle with its atmospheric old Fort area.

Is this a Private Tour or a Group Tour?

All of our tours are private tailor made itineraries, customised for you - we can amend things to entirely suit you.

You will have your own private car and chauffeur-guide on excursions and transfers between destinations.

Sri Lanka differs from many other destinations in this respect - the driver doubles as the guide.

What are the departure dates?

Let us know your preferred dates of travel and we will find the best and most suitable flights to fit your itinerary.

As this is a private tour, there are no set departure dates.

Which Airlines do you use?

We work with all the major airlines flying to Sri Lanka.

Typically for Sri Lanka, Sri Lankan Airlines, British Airways and Emirates are the airlines we most often use.

However, just let us know your preferred airline if you have one. We can organise flights from any regional destination in the UK.

Sri Lankan Airlines and British Airways fly directly to Sri Lanka and Sri Lankan Airlines and Emirates are both great options for combining Sri Lanka with the Maldives.

Which Hotels do you use?

We're careful with our choice of hotels in Sri Lanka, but we're guided by our customers also. If you have some preferred hotels, just let us know.

We specialise in boutique hotels and so we will often suggest some of our favourite smaller hotels where we think these will be suitable.

We keep on top of hotel developments in Sri Lanka through our own inspection trips and also through the expertise of our local partners. We also keep tabs on feedback online and from our customers.

Sri Lanka has a really great choice of boutique hotels and some excellent luxury hotels.

Do you cater for Solo Travellers & Families?

Yes, we have many solo travellers, and Sri Lanka is generally a safe, friendly and welcoming destination for those travelling alone.

Sri Lanka is very well suited for families of all ages and we can tailor something specifically to fit your family's needs.

This particular Sri Lanka Highlights itinerary can be tailored for families. Children of all ages tend to love Sri Lanka for the wildlife, jungle and activities such as cycling around the temples.

How long have you been organising holidays to Sri Lanka?

We've been organising tailor made holidays to Sri Lanka for over 10 years.

Our team has a wealth of combined experience in the industry and our Director has been involved in organising holidays to Sri Lanka since the early 1990's.

Our partners on the ground in Sri Lanka have over 20 years experience in operating there.

They understand the country inside out and have a strong infrastructure of staff, guides and vehicles.

We've had the same partnership in Sri Lanka since 2010.

What destinations can be combined with Sri Lanka?

A holiday to Sri Lanka is often combined with a beach holiday in the Maldives. It's really the perfect combination of culture, sights, wildlife and some of the best beaches in the world.

A stopover in Dubai or Abu Dhabi is a very popular option for Sri Lanka holidays - it makes a great contrast.

Sri Lanka is also sometimes combined with South East Asia or with a journey around India.

Should our clients need any assistance during a trip to Sri Lanka, we always have at least one of our own staff on a similar time zone, and we're open 7 days a week in Saigon.

Of course our local partners are always there to assist 24-7.
