Sri Lanka's Wildlife (14 Days)

Sri Lanka's Wildlife

Tour Description

An unhurried but comprehensive wildlife holiday with select accommodations situated close to nature, with all the important wildlife highlights in Sri Lanka. Safaris and walks are conducted with some of the top naturalists in the country.

Once you arrive in Sri Lanka, you will get a taste of its stunning beaches with an overnight stay at Ranweli Holiday Village in Waikkal, a short drive north from the airport. You can enjoy a quiet birding boat trail to explore the surrounding environs.

Your first transfer will be to the Wilpattu National Park where you will go on safaris and night walks to spot exotic species of animals. Get your first taste of Big Game Tented Camping on the outskirts of the park which will be a feature throughout the tour.

We will whisk you away to the hill capital of Kandy which is a transit location but serves up some of the best cultural and historical attractions. Visit the Temple of the Tooth Relic and soak in the unique culture of this city.

The Udawalawe National Park is next on the list as it offers visitors the best chance to see Asian elephants in the wild. Warm your heart with a visit to the Elephant Transit Home where some of the less fortunate elephants are rehabilitated and released.

Then it’s on to the Yala National Park with a quick stopover at Bundala, which is famous for its exotic bird population including the majestic Greater Flamingos. Yala is considered the best place in the world to see the Sri Lankan leopard as well as Sloth Bears.

A couple of days in Mirissa would do wonderfully before your flight back home as it affords you some time to unwind and reflect. Go on a whale watching tour to see Blue and Sperm Whales and enjoy the golden beaches on offer in this coastal town in the south of Sri Lanka.
