Overview

Sri Lanka’s network of National Parks boasts a stunning range of landscapes and habitats, home to an amazing array of animals and birds. Each is different in character, climate and wildlife and this holiday brings together 4 of the best and most varied, namely: Gal Oya, Yala, Udawalawe and Sinharaja. All topped and tailed with time in the tea country and historic fortress town of Galle. A beach can be easily added.

  • Gal Oya National Park: Slightly off the beaten track so less visited and swimming elephants!
  • Yala National Park: Famous for its Leopards but also worth visiting for the incredible landscapes
  • Uda Walawawe National Park: Far more open scenery giving more panoramic views and large population of elephants
  • Sinharaja Forest Reserve: One of last remaining areas of virgin rainforest, great birdlife
