Why we love it

“This trip offers everything from tracking wildlife through remote national parks to learning about ancient Buddhist sites, with some time on Sri Lanka's white sandy beaches along the way. Begin your trip (hopefully) spotting leopards in the wilds of Wilpattu, before driving into the Cultural Triangle in the North, where ancient sites and the mind-blowing rock fortress of Sigiriya awaits. Afterwards, take some chill time on the east coast before enjoying the beautiful rolling tea country and hills to finish. This trip truly has it all.”

On arrival, you will be met through immigration by our local representatives and introduced to your driver. It's then a short drive to your lovely first hotel.

Colombo & Negombo

Although there are some good beaches and great hotels in the area, Negombo is often used as an entry or exit point due to its proximity to the airport. It's also a good option if you prefer to have a more leisurely start or end to your itinerary.

Time to hit the road and drive north to the wilds of Wilpattu, a drive of around 4 hours passing some beautiful coastal scenery en route. It's worth starting early so that you can get your first game drive in later in the afternoon.

Wilpattu National Park

This wild, sprawling national park on the West Coast is the perfect place to escape the crowds and have Sri Lanka's wildlife all to yourself. With less promise of spotting the elusive leopard, it's a great option for wildlife lovers who enjoy the overall wildlife experience. There are several camps to choose from and two nights is usually perfect.

As the name suggests, you will find many of the ancient cultural highlights of the island in this area, including Sigiriya Rock Fortress, the Dambulla Caves, and Anuradhapura. There are some excellent hotels to enjoy and all sorts of activities, from hiking to spotting elephants in national parks. If you are into your history and culture, it's not to be missed.

Time to head back inland as you are transferred through the hills and tea plantations to the most scenic part of the island. This drive takes around 5-6 hours depending on which hotel you choose.

Tea Country & Ella

Home to Sri Lanka's most famous export - tea. The rolling tea fields are simply stunning and in our opinion, not to be missed. Best visited by a wonderful train ride that winds its way through the hills, it's a great place to spend two or three nights wandering the plantations and soaking up the area's beautiful scenery.

Time to experience one of the most scenic train rides in Asia. You will be dropped at the train station to take the toy train through the winding tea country to Kandy. At the other end, you will be collected and transferred to your next hotel.

Kandy

Home to the 'Temple of the Tooth', Kandy is a bustling city surrounded by misty hills in the center of the island. A convenient place to stop for a night or two, there are some great boutique hotel and local experiences to enjoy. We recommend sightseeing with your chauffeur guide (included) and sampling the local delicacies on a food tour.
