Highlights

 

Journey to Sri Lanka to experience jeep safaris, pristine beaches and world-famous Ceylon tea on an 11 day Highlights of Sri Lanka tour.

The pretty capital of Colombo is your first port of call in Sri Lanka. Get to know its landmarks and attractions on a guided city tour that offers insight into Colombo’s cultural heritage and history. Follow the call of the wild to Yala National Park, one of Sri Lanka’s preeminent nature reserves. Stop off at a tea plantation en route from Colombo to savour a cup of Sri Lanka’s world-famous Ceylon tea. Then, catch a glimpse of the park’s four-legged or winged residents on an early morning jeep safari. Do your best to capture a photo of the sly leopard.

Travel to Galle to discover its UNESCO World Heritage Site-listed fort, wander along its waterfront promenades and pick up souvenirs from local artisans. The final destination of your trip is Bentota, one of the jewels in Sri Lanka’s coastal crown. One of this relaxed beach town’s biggest draws is Bentota Beach, an elongated stretch of shoreline that comes with golden sands, swaying palm trees and water sport opportunities. Use your three days in Bentota however you like, be it lounging on the beach to soak up Vitamin D, visiting nearby turtle hatcheries, exploring neighbouring towns, or simply relaxing by your resort’s swimming pool.
