Sri Lanka

The Temple of the Tooth, the fortress of Galle, the Pinnewala Elephant Orphanage—these are among the highlights of our comprehensive Sri Lanka tour, a nature lover’s dream come true. Our wildlife expert, Mark Brazil, will be there every step of the way on your Sri Lanka expedition, providing insight into the creatures of the Sinharaja Nature Reserve and Yala National Park. As part of your Sri Lanka tour, we’ll spend days whale-watching off the southern coast, one of the world’s best spots to glimpse the blue whale, visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites and commune with elephants, spotted deer and an incredible number of endemic bird species. Explore rich marine areas and dramatic landscapes by day, then kick back in top-notch accommodations each evening.
