Day wise Itinerary

  • Day 1 : Arrival

    You will be met at Colombo Airport and transferred 3-hours to to the small town of Mirissa.

    Situated near the southern tip of Sri Lanka, from October to May this region is renowned for its Whale Watching. Check into your hotel and relax on the shores of Indian Ocean.

  • Day 2 : Mirissa

    At leisure to relax at Mirissa on the shores of the warm Indian Ocean.

  • Day 3 : Whale Watching

    An early start today, as you depart from the fishery harbour at 07.00 on a Whale Watching boat ride on the warm Indian Ocean.

    In season you can hope to see the Blue whale, Bryde´s whale, Sperm whale, Fin whale and sometimes a Killer whale. Blue whales in concentrations not seen elsewhere in the world will be the highlight.

    The Common dolphin, Bottlenose dolphin, Spinner dolphin, Risso's dolphin and Striped dolphin are also seen in these clear waters and you may even see turtle, bluefin tuna and flying fish.

    You will be on the water for 4-hours in seas that can get rough, so preventative travel sickness tablets are recommended if you are not a good sailor. Remember to take sun glasses, sun hat and good sun screen protection. Afterwards return to shore, with balance of day at leisure.

  • Day 4 : Udawalawe National Park

    This morning we travel 2.5-hours from Mirissa to Udawalawe National Park.

    Enjoy a jeep safari on arrival at this wildlife reserve that was created to provide sanctuary for animals displaced by the Udawalawe Reservoir and offers the best sightings of wild Asian elephants in Sri Lanka. It is also an important habitat for water birds, water buffalo, spotted & barking deer, wild boar, sambar, jackal, mongoose, leopard, jungle and fishing cats - although these nocturnal animals are rarely seen.

  • Day 5 : Udawalawe Elephant Transit Home

    This morning we visit the Udawalawe Elephant Transit Home that cares for orphaned calves and re-introduces them into the wild, where you can observe these youngsters coming in to feed.

    We then continue 2-hours to Yala National Park, the premier game reserve in Sri Lanka, covering an area of nearly 400 sq miles (1,000 sq.km). It is famous for having the highest density of leopards in the world, but sightings of these magnificent animals are not guaranteed and you need to take at least 2 or 3 jeep safaris for a good chance of a sighting. Enjoy your first jeep safari on arrival at Yala.

  • Day 6 : Yala National Park

    Rise early today to enjoy the wildlife of Yala National Park - home to over 40 different species of mammals and also known locally as Ruhuna National Park. Whilst famous for its over 35 leopards, you can also see water buffalo, elephants, spotted & barking deer, wild boar, sambar, crocodiles, jackals, monkeys and mongoose. Sloth bears are also present but are rarely seen.

    Bird life is particularly rewarding including excellent raptor sightings, many aquatic birds, wild peacock, jungle fowl (the national bird of Sri Lanka), hornbills, orioles, pelicans and the rare black-necked stork. Over 200 different bird species can be seen, including many that migrate to escape the northern winter such as white-winged black terns, curlews and pintails.

    Early morning and late afternoon is the best time to track leopards, but be aware that it is very difficult to find them in the wild and sightings are never guaranteed. Best viewings are generally at the end of the dry season (January to April), when the leopards search out the waterholes. Two jeep safaris per day are included - one in the early morning and one in the late afternoon.

    Yala National Park is closed during September and early October. Please be prepared for some rough roads and be aware that this park can be extremely busy, especially over weekends and festivals.

  • Day 7 : Galle Coast

    Today we depart from Yala and travel 4-hours along the south coast to your hotel on the Galle Coast in the vicinity of the fortified town of Galle.

    Along the way we visit the pilgrimage town of Kataragama - sacred to the Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim and local Vedda people. Here you can view the Kiri Vehera, an ancient Buddhist stupa (sacred mound containing relics) dating back to the 6th century BC. There is also a multi-faith temple on the site.

    We also visit a Tea Plantation to see how the leaves of the tea bushes are dried, to make one of the most popular drinks in the world, before continuing to Galle.

    Galle Fort has a colourful history, as it was originally built by the Portuguese and later heavily fortified by the Dutch. It is today a World Heritage site, with a multi-ethnic and multi-religious population living within its walls. After visiting the town your guide will drop you off at your hotel along this beautiful coast and return to Colombo.

  • Day 8 : Galle Coast
