Sri Lanka is a gem to discover with much more to offer than culture, history and golden sandy beaches. The island’s isolation from the mainland and varied climatic conditions means it is one of the finest environments in Asia for spotting wildlife, with an extensive biodiversity normally only found across an entire continent. Vast areas of Sri Lanka are protected, with National Parks ideal for spotting wild elephants such as Udawalawe and Minneriya included on the tour. Bird spotting opportunities are in abundance throughout Sri Lanka and whale watching is a must on the south coast where the Blue Whale forms a distinct resident population.Less
