This 15-day wildlife holiday is for those interested in exploring Sri Lanka's rich biodiversity. Join us as we travel to four national parks and wildlife reserves in the country and enjoy the beauty of verdant tropical greenery teeming with a variety of wildlife. See colorful birds in the Talangama Wetlands, primates in the ancient city of Polonnaruwa, wild elephants in Gal Oya National Park and, if you're lucky, leopards in Yala National Park.

This itinerary also features sightseeing tours in Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa and a trip to the spectacular hill country of Sri Lanka. You’ll also visit the Unesco World Heritage site of Galle Fort and enjoy a full-day boat and bicycle excursion through lush paddy fields and rural villages.

Accommodation during this trip ranges from a thatched-roof hut in a luxurious eco-retreat located in a private forest on the edge of Gal Oya National Park to a beautifully restored colonial tea planter's mansion set on a 30-acre estate in Sri Lanka's central highlands. Travel between destinations in a private air-conditioned vehicle and enjoy the company of highly experienced local guides during your wildlife and cultural excursions.
