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.  

 
 

Day 1: Australia – airplane-takeoff – Sri Lanka

Head to the airport to catch your flight departing Australia for Colombo in Sri Lanka. A tour representative will meet you upon arrival and transfer you to the hotel. 

Day 2: Colombo (B)

Be introduced to Colombo with a city tour today. Learn about the Portuguese, Dutch and English history of the city and see the architectural influences of these colonial powers in the Fort and Pettah areas. The afternoon is at your leisure.

Day 3: Colombo – Yala (B)

After breakfast at the hotel, travel to Yala National Park in the south west of Sri Lanka. This scenic route takes about six-and-a-half hours and there is a stop at Handunugoda Tea Estate for a museum visit and tea-tasting along the way. 

Day 4: Yala (B)

Set your alarm for an early start this morning as you venture into Yala National Park on a safari experience. This world-renowned park is known for its herds of elephant as well as its mongoose, wild buffalo, spotted deer, crocodile and even leopards. There are also more than 130 species of bird. The group returns to the hotel following the safari and the remainder of the day is free time.

Day 5: Yala – Galle (B)

The group travels to Galle following breakfast at the hotel. In its former life, Galle was a port hub of Sri Lanka and has seen its landscape influenced by both the Dutch and Portuguese. Today, Galle is one of the most popular coastal towns in Sri Lanka and visitors come to wander through the streets contained within the Fort, to visit local lace-makers and artisans, and to stroll around the harbour. 

Day 6: Galle – Bentota (B)

This morning you will head to Bentota, a small resort town on the southwest coast. Bentota is home to Paradise Island, a long white-sand beach that stretches parallel to Bentota Lagoon. Off shore, there are a number of dive sites. Travellers who prefer to remain on dry land can visit some of the temples, estates and gardens. Or, you may simply choose to lounge about the resort and relax.
