WILD LIFE SAFARI
A safari in one of the 14 national parks offers the chance to see some of Sri Lankas 91 mammals (20 endemic) - Sri Lankan Asian elephant, leopard, sloth bear, sambhur, spotted deer, hog, mouse- and barking-deer, wild boar, porcupine, ant-eater, civet cat, loris, giant squirrel, and monkeys such as the macaque, purple-faced leaf monkey and grey langur.
SUN KISSED BEACHES
No trip to Sri Lanka can be complete without a trip to the coastline to marvel at the sights and experience the importance of the ocean to the people. The best of the Southern beaches include Tangalla, Beruwala, Mirissa, Bentota and Unawatuna with glowing coral reefs, gentle sandbars and undiscovered corners of paradise. Enjoy relaxing beside the golden beaches with its clear, calm waters and an offshore reef.
The lush landscape and cool climate prove to be an ideal combination for tea. Whether it is sipping Ceylon Tea on a veranda overlooking the sprawling tea plantations in Nuwara Eliya that or a visit to the Buddhist relic at the Temple to the Tooth in Kandy travellers will experience yet another facet of this extraordinary diverse country.
See all the stages of the tea-making process and perhaps buy a few packets of the excellent quality tea produced here to take home with you.
