Leopards and Elephants and Bears, Oh My!
Our Wildlife Encounters holiday is a 15-day taster itinerary that will get you up close and personal with Sri Lanka’s exotic and plentiful wildlife!
Guided jeep safaris in the island’s principal national parks (Yala, Uda Walawe, Bundala and Minneriya) as well as visits to a wide variety of other habitats and locations will introduce you to Sri Lanka’s ‘Big Four’ – elephant, leopard, sloth bear and blue whale. This taster holiday brings you the very best of this environmentally diverse country, which boasts 86 species of mammals, more than 400 bird species (including 26 endemics), and a colourful array of flowering plants and trees, all contained within 21 National Parks out of 100 areas protected by the government, and surrounded by the Indian Ocean alive with schools of whales and large pods of dolphins.
The accommodation includes a former tea planter’ club, former government rest house, mock colonial villa, luxury eco-chalet and beachside resort.
Remember that all of our holidays to Sri Lanka and Maldives are truly tailor made with no set dates, accommodation, duration, routes or visits, so each holiday is unique and specially created to your very own interests and requirements.
