Sri Lanka is bound by pure, white sandy beaches where the sea temperature rarely falls below 27°C. Beyond the swaying coconut palms there is a vast wealth of culture and beauty to discover. Plan a trip to the Elephant Orphanage in Pinnawela, Kandy, the tea plantations and the awe inspiring rock fortress of Sigiriya. Sri Lanka is an island of discovery, a traveller's paradise, exotic and irresistible.
Sri Lanka's mixture of culture, history and wildlife together with the local's natural friendliness, make it a special holiday destination.
The island of Sri Lanka is shaped like an enormous teardrop falling from the southern tip of India, separated by a series of stepping-stone coral islets. Sri Lanka encompasses verdant vegetation, ancient monuments, and an array of wildlife.
Sri Lanka offers superb wildlife throughout its beautiful scenery. The country is home to a several thousand elephants, hundreds of species of birds and the highest density of leopards in the World. With 10 National Parks, you are never far away from your next wildlife encounter.
Sri Lanka is tropical, with distinct dry and wet seasons. The driest (and best) seasons in Sri Lanka are from December to March for the west coast, south coast and the Hill Country, and from April to September for the ancient cities region and the east coast. The higher hill country towns such as Nuwara Eliya are cooler.
The only direct flight to Sri Lanka is with Sri Lanka Airlines who fly daily from London Heathrow into Colombo. The railways are a great way to see the country and there is also a small domestic flight network. We can arrange group or private transfers for you to anywhere in Sri Lanka.
