Sri Lanka eco-tours take you on a magical safari.
It might be close to India, but there is much to Sri Lanka that Indians don’t know about.
Sri Lanka is an island paradise, just awakening from the ravages of decades of civil war.
It’s one of the world’s most underrated destinations.
And one of the most beautiful.
Our tour specialist’s epic two-week excursion into the heartlands of the country will leave you with memories, experiences, and thrills of a lifetime.
Sri Lanka has the largest seasonal concentration of Asian elephants. It’s the best place in the world for seeing the Blue Whale.
Cities abound with culture.
For the eco-traveler, you are never short of the clarion call of birds.
The friendliest people.
And great cuisine.
There is not much you can miss in Sri Lanka, but much you will miss by not going!
Take your senses in at this pulsating city before leaving for Galle, where you can await the sea breeze.
Today is the day you will see the Blue Whales!
The world’s largest Blue Whale ever was discovered in Sri Lanka.
The Blue Whale is the largest mammal ever.
It’s said that their tongue alone can weigh as much as an elephant.
It’s difficult to imagine the size.
And we invite you not to imagine, because it’s here that you can see the largest concentration of Blue Whales!
Keep your camera ready.
But remember to be respectful.
This is their habitat and we are the intruders.
And in case you are not sated till after seeing the Blue Whale, try looking for Sperm Whales.
You can then spend the evening, as the sun sets at the beautiful fort by the sea – the Galle Dutch fort.
We take you to one of the world’s richest biodiversity hotspots.
The Sinharaja rainforest.
This World Heritage Site as as Lonely Planet describes it “ the last major undisturbed area of rainforest in Sri Lanka.”
Ardent birdwatchers would find it hard to keep their camera down here.
And that’s just what is in store for you the next day.
Spend the night here.
Wake up to silence.
We promise you it’s divine.
Be prepared to face the Red-faced Malkoha, Sri Lanka Blue Magpie, White-faced Starling, and Scaly Thrush.
How many can you spot in this day in the wilderness?
More than 160 species have been recorded here in this, the heart of Sri Lanka’s natural paradise.
Be prepared for some walking and a lot of camera-snapping.
Sinharaja is also home to the leopard, rusty spotted cats, and fishing cats.
But not nature goodbye because today you will continue to Yala National Park.
And chances are you have a pretty good chance at spotting one.
Yala has the largest concentration density of leopards in the world.
Didn’t we tell you Sri Lanka was amazing?
First, the largest concentration of Blue Whales, and now leopards? That’s not it at all.
Try training your eyes to spot elephants, sloth bears, wild boars, and spotted deer.
Down, by the water, a painted stork might preen in its glory or the black-headed Ibis.
This is tropical richness at its most diverse.
Slip into a world of colonial charm.
It’s a world that Lonely Planet describes as ‘strange and beautiful.’ And we can’t agree more.
This is a protected area with verdant grassland. Reach the World’s End.
No, nothing dramatic, or rather nothing more dramatic than jaw-dropping scenery from this viewpoint.
And say hello to the sambar deer.
Spend your evening at the Hakgala Botanical Gardens.
This park has a long history, dating back to 1861.
And enjoy the richness you are in.
And you will go past Kandy, where you can take a peek at the Buddha’s tooth.
This is one of Buddhism’s most venerated shrines, and the Temple of the Tooth has a magical aura to it.
We will climb Sigiriya Rock in the morning.
And then head out in the evening to the Sigiriya Sanctuary, which will be your chance to look for dry zone birds.
Look for Orange-headed Thrush, Purple Sunbird, Stork-billed Kingfisher, Asian Paradise Flycatcher, White-rumped Shama and Shahin.
Look for also see the rare Blue-eared Kingfisher around the Sigiriya Moat.
You will visit the ancient city of Polonnaruwa, a UNESCO archaeological site, the medieval capital of Sri Lanka.
In the afternoon, you will take a jeep safari to Minneriya National Park to look for elephants.
Visit the Talangama Wetland, set amidst glistening paddy fields.
Soak in the sunshine and watch a brilliant array of red dragonflies.
And who doesn’t love butterflies?
Spot the Tailed Jay who tends to hang aroudn with the Common Tiger, and the Common Palmfly.
Has it been 14 days already?
Leave Sri Lanka remembering its rich diversity.
Leave with memories to cherish.
Leave your heart behind, till you come back again.
