This a wonderful private wildlife holiday that offers cosy accommodations close to nature and most of the country’s “must-see” wildlife highlights, including its ‘Big Five’ with safaris and walks conducted by some of Sri Lanka’s finest naturalists. Watch blue whales and sperm whales with an awe-inspiring whale watching tour in Mirissa. Visit the historic Galle Fort during your stay here, where you can learn more about Sri Lanka’s colonial history and explore one of the country’s best-known architectural highlights.
After that, go on safari in the Yala National Park and Udawalawe, known for being the best location to photograph and film the regal Sri Lankan Leopard. Observe a range of animals, including elephants and sloth bears and endemic, resident, and migratory bird species. Go on a night walk along the border to see some of the park’s natural nightlife too.
