8 Nights & 9 Days

Day 1

Arrive at Sinharaja Rain Forest (Half board basis)

Sinharaja Rainforest is a world heritage site, which can also be described as a Tropical Lowland Rainforest or Tropical Wet Evergreen Forest.  Whatever its ‘technical’ name, it is undoubtedly a rich treasure trove of nature with a great diversity of habitats and a vast repository of Sri Lanka’s endemic species found nowhere else in the world. Bird Watching in this ecosystem is particularly interesting because it is home to 95% of the endemic birds of Sri Lanka!  Named as a world heritage site in 1989, this lowland evergreen rain forest is steeped in deep legend and mystery. The word ‘Sinharaja’ means, Lion (Sinha) King (Raja), and it is popular belief that the legendary origin of the Sinhala people is from the union between a princess and the lion king who once lived in the forest!

UDAWALAWE NATIONAL PARK is located approximately 200 km south-east of Colombo city.  The 30,821 hectare dry zone game park has an annual rainfall of 1,524 mm and an average temperature of 29.40C.  It is most famous for the many elephants that live there (about 400 in total).  During a visit, it is not unusual to see whole herds – adults and young, feeding and bathing or playing in the water!  In addition to this main attraction, the park is home to many water buffalo, water monitor lizards, sambar deer, monkeys and the occasional leopard, as well as being an exciting location for bird enthusiasts.  A 4WD open-top safari is the only way to see all the wonders this protected reserve has to offer, and our experienced and knowledgeable nature guides will make this an unforgettable experience.
