Discover the best wildlife experiences Sri Lanka has to offer, travelling to three of its national parks. Visit the oldest, the biggest and one of the least-visited national parks. Along the way, see some of Sri Lanka’s best-known cultural attractions.
Welcome to Sri Lanka! You will be met upon arrival and transferred to your accommodation - Horathapola Estate in Wadumunnegedara, a journey of around an hour. Horathapola Estate is a 20-hectare property nestled in rural Sri Lanka set amidst a manicured garden and tranquil surroundings.
Rise early this morning for another safari. Return to your accommodation and depart to Galle Galle, UNESCO World Heritage City that speaks of another era of times gone by. Your accommodation will be at an upmarket stylish boutique hotel conveniently situated inside Galle Fort.
Discover the many faces of Galle with a gentle guided walking tour led by an expert resident guide and local character this morning. Explore the Fort on your own at leisure in the evening. Galle Fort is a pleasant place to wander with its quiet streets, inviting cafes and many boutiques and artisan workshops.
Today depart to Colombo International airport for your departure flight, a journey of around 2 hours on the southern expressway.
Full day at leisure at your lodge. This evening go on a nature walk and visit the research centre with your in-house naturalist
Drive to Yala National Park this morning. This is Sri Lanka’s most visited wildlife reserve; as the terrain is semi-arid, there's a better chance to see wildlife with less jungle hindering views. Due to high density of leopards, the park has earned a reputation for frequent sightings. Your accommodation here will be in an upmarket tented safari accommodation. This afternoon you will explore the park on a jeep safari with the in-house naturalist.
Rise at dawn to freshly brewed Ceylon tea or coffee before beginning your early morning game drive. Return to the camp after the safari. Spend the rest of the day relaxing at the camp – perhaps doze or read in a hammock, or chat with one of the camp’s naturalists, before heading out later this afternoon for another safari.
