Discover the lofty mountains of Gal Oya National Park and the misty Sinharaja Forest Reserve, and on the way, gain an insight into local farming industries before lazing on the shores of Arugam Bay. Delight on a wildlife-focused and nature-filled itinerary in one of Asia’s best selections of jungle and forest – thank ya for Sri Lanka! Highlights/r/n
  • Head out on a morning and evening safari in the Kumuna National Park, to give you the best chance to search for the abundance of wildlife that live along the park’s many waterways.
  • Visit Project Orange Elephant, run by the Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society. Supported by the Intrepid Foundation, this organisation is dedicated to ensuring both sustainable farming practice and wildlife conservation.
  • Spend some time soaking up laid-back surf vibes in Arugam Bay – a beachside haven that’s ideal to just sit back and watch the waves roll in after a long day of exploring.
  • Stay in a well-situated eco-lodge in the Sinharaja Forest Reseve – a World Heritage-listed tropical rainforest that’s home to jackals, big cats, wild boars and Toque monkeys – to name a few.
  • Discover the Portuguese and Dutch influence in Galle Fort. After nearly a week in the wild, wind down in this colonial town, with varied cuisine and eclectic bars perfect for a crew outing.
