Average time to visit

Year round destination. Because the Hill Country it so high up it rarely gets unbearably hot. The months of December to April are probably the best time to visit, as temperatures rise to around 28C during the day but cool down at night. During the monsoon season from October to December you can expect heavy downpours. June to September are the driest months here, when there’s almost no rain at all.

Older kids can enjoy white water rafting and go hiking.

Accommodation: 3 nights

Yala National Park

From here you'll be whisked off to Yala National Park; home to one of the highest concentrations of leopards in the world, Yala is also a fantastic habitat for elephants, deer and sloth bear. Over your two nights, enjoy time exploring in your jeep on enthralling game drives, going in search of these illusive creatures.

Accommodation: 2 nights
Day 6-12

Tangalle

Not far, just around the corner on the coast, you’ll have six nights in Tangalle. Enjoy cycling through the coconut groves and playing on the expansive beach. At certain times of year it's possible to see turtles hatching along this coast.
