Things to Do in Sri Lanka

The amazing Minneriya National Park is renowned for its elephant populations and beautiful scenery. Enjoy a safari drive in search of the Asian elephant, a highlight for many during their tour. The Wilpattu National Park safaris are an experience not to be missed, from half to full day jeep safaris, marvel at the range of wildlife and try to spot the elusive leopard.

Things to do

Head to ancient city of Polonnaruwa to meet many a cheeky monkey and learn about these fascinating primates! For an exhilarating adventure explore the Knuckles Mountain Range on a full day trek. A local tracker will guide you through the Knuckles Forest Reserve, hiking the Corbett’s Gap Viewpoint track. Spectacular. If you love food, we certainly do, then Sri Lanka is very much the place for you. The depth of flavours is very special, and we can arrange a private cookery course to prepare traditional Sri Lankan meals using this freshest produce and an array of spices available. Ready to impress your friends when you get home.
