A superb itinerary which combines some of the country’s finest nationals parks for wildlife with the island’s culturally significant locations and historic temples.

Travelling on this itinerary will reveal some of the many wildlife, cultural and historical highlights that Sri Lanka has to offer. Including safaris at three national parks, Yala, Udawalawe and Bundala, which are home to leopards, elephants and (in season) leatherback turtles, the itinerary will be polished with some of the country's cultural sights to offer a fascinating and well rounded insight into the teardrop isle's rich historical tapestry.

The island itself covers an area of just under 70,000 square kilometres and, despite its relatively small size, Sri Lanka has some of the finest wildlife and best preserved historical sights in the sub-continent. This expertly-designed itinerary allows you to enjoy all the wildlife and cultural highlights of the country at a leisurely pace in keeping with the relaxed atmosphere of this fascinating island.
