Conservationists, animal lovers and eco-tourists will be spellbound by our Summer Wildlife Holiday which includes the Elephant Gathering at Minneriya, Dambana Vaddah Village and wildlife safaris in seven national parks.
Few countries in the world can compare with Sri Lanka for its abundant wildlife and bird species. Its 22 national parks are home to 4000 species of plants, 245 butterfly species, 492 different birds, 95 mammals and 207 reptile species*, including many endemic and endangered species. From herds of wild elephants to solitary reclusive leopards, we transport you in your own air-conditioned chauffeur-driven vehicle from one amazing animal experience to the next. Our fantastic Wildlife Holiday includes the best naturalists, guides and jeep safaris in some of Sri Lanka’s top national parks.
From jungle-covered mountain to reservoirs, lakes and even a 1700 year-old “tank”, we seek out the best wildlife encounters and photo opportunities. Of course, every single tour is different as we never know quite what we will see, but we do ensure the best possible sightings with carefully timed trips accompanied by some of the best ranger/spotters in the country.
Our local contacts secure permission for you to visit little-known wildlife conservation sanctuaries, indigenous jungle villages and remote places few independent travellers even know exist. A particular highlight of our Summer Wildlife Holiday is the chance to witness the Annual Elephant Gathering at the Minneriya Tank from July to September.
Best of all, you can tailor-make your own Wildlife Tour by adding some optional tours and choosing from a range of pre-selected hotels to suit your budget and desired standard of luxury. We include a two-night stay at an eco-lodge surrounded by pristine rainforest for a real jungle wildlife experience. From mountains to plains and back to the coast, we introduce you to some of Sri Lanka’s best wildlife locations and provide you with once-in-a-lifetime animal encounters that sadly may not be available for future generations.
