Two Weeks in Sri Lanka – an experience like no other
Sri Lanka is an island of numerous wonders, and this tour packs in so much of this paradise isle into a two week tour that you will be left mesmerised and invigorated by the end. Take in the isle of serendipity on this epic journey, as you visit cultural, historical, natural, and modern attractions. This tour even manages to leave some time for visitors to relax at one of the most attractive beaches in the world.
The journey gets off to a running start in coastal resort town of Negombo, where sea, sun, sand, and some of the best seafood in the world entice and encourage you to see what else this tiny island nation has to offer.
A quick history lesson is around every corner, as you visit the Golden Temple at Dambulla, Sigiriya Rock Fortress, the ancient capital city of Polonnaruwa, the Temple of the Tooth Relic in Kandy, and the Dutch Fort in Galle. Kandy offers a cultural dancing performance that promises to leave you breathless.
What this tour offers more than anything else are nature safaris. Sri Lanka’s national parks offer different, but equally rewarding safari experiences. See Leopards in Yala, Elephants in Minneriya, and Birds in Bundala; other national parks offer some great landscapes and unique wildlife experiences. As an island surrounded by the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is also rich in marine life. A whale and dolphin watching expedition in Mirissa is one of the most memorable experiences you will have on this tour.
Sri Lanka’s wildlife is not mutually exclusive with its culture and people. Elephants are a cultural icon of the country, and this tour includes visits to two facilities that take care of these gentle giants – the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, and the Udawalawe Elephant Transit Home.
Cosmopolitan or metropolitan – however you describe it, Colombo is a city that has so much to offer anyone. The main financial hub of the island(and former capital) is by far the largest city in the country, and a city / shopping tour is unmissable in this rapidly developing city.
If all this sounds hectic to you, never fear, as Wildlife Tours Sri Lanka has organised this tour with a few days to relax. One day spent in the hill capital of Kandy, and a couple of days lounging on a beach in Unawatuna, where you even have the option of going for a swim, or go snorkelling or diving.
