Solos Only

Sri Lanka is abundant in culture, ancient history, white sandy beaches, lush leafy tea plantations, and the warm hospitality of the Sri Lankan people. And for many, the major highlight is the proliferation of the elephant population in the National Parks of Sri Lanka.

A tropical island, shaped liked a tear drop, off the south east coast of India is an easy to reach destination from Australia and makes for the ideal two week trip.

Arriving to the country’s capital, Colombo, there’s a two night stay in the nearby coastal town of Negombo before the group makes its way to the cultural triangle. Then, from ancient culture, it’s on to the highlands for a fine cup of tea at our unique boutique eco lodge, where we enjoy an easy pace two night stay, before visiting the city of Kandy. After, journey to the hill country of Sri Lanka’s Central Province, with an overnight stay in the picturesque town of Nuwara Eliya, reminding many visitors of a ‘little England’.

From the hills, we make our way down to Udawalawe National Park, including a jeep safari to see the elephant population. On our final leg of our discovery, we have a south coast visit of the old fort city of Galle, enjoying a relaxing two night stay before a final night in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo.

During your Sri Lankan encounter you’ll enjoy the country’s unique cuisine plus there’s time to enjoy some unique Ayurveda spa treatments.

We have breakfast at our hotel before we take a Jeep Safari to visit the Udawalawe National Park.

Udawalawe National Park was established in 1972 to protect the catchment area of the Walawe reservoir, crucial to the livelihoods of the farmers in the south east dry zone. With the land only recently reverting back from cultivation, the park has some fascinating characteristics that make it well worth a visit. Not least of these is the large elephant population.

Udawalawe is the most reliable place to see elephants in their wild habitat year round. Some 400-500 elephants live in the park and herds of up to 50 are commonly seen. The open plains are covered in thick manna grass up to the borders of the large reservoir in the centre and the Walawe River. The park is also covered by some abandoned teak plantation and dense scrub jungle. This variety in habitat makes for a rich variety of wildlife and game. As well as elephants, leopards live in the park (though you will be very lucky to spot one), toque monkeys, grey langur, spotted deer, wild pig and sambar. There are numerous bird species of course and Udawalawe is particularly rich in raptor species, among them the white bellied sea eagle and the crested serpent eagle.

In addition, we include other group dining experiences to ensure that everyone can enjoy the benefit of travelling and dining as a group.  There’s nothing better than to share a meal with new friends and discuss the day’s adventures.

The Local Cuisine
The lunch and dinner meals included with the itinerary are Sri Lankan cuisine.

We like to ensure that our travellers have dining experiences at local quality restaurants, and you won’t be limited to buffet style meals, but also enjoy A La Carte dining. There may be occasions where the group dines at the hotel, due to limited choice of restaurants in the area.

For days where lunch or dinner isn’t included, your guide will be on hand to offer recommendations. There may be one, or a few exceptions with western-style options. The hotel breakfasts will offer a variety including Sri Lankan breakfast and some western breakfast options. 

The traditional cuisine of Sri Lanka has been influenced by many nationalities over the years including the Dutch, English, Arabs, Malays, Moors, Indians and Portuguese. Food is colourful with many vegetarian options and by the coast seafood features.  The staple diet is rice and curry and the curry is usually offered as a variety of small dishes of curry including vegetarian, chicken, fish and some beef and mutton curries.  The curries are accompanied by other dishes including dhal and sambol (like a chutney). Coconut milk is widely used in the curries. And contrary to belief of some westerners, curries are not usually ‘hot’ in taste, but rather ‘spiced’ for flavour. Given Sri Lanka is a tropical island, tropical fruits are abundant. Be sure to sip on a King Coconut juice.

We advise travellers against street food and that you only dine at places that are recommended by your guide or guide/leader.  By following best advice it’s far less likely that you will become unwell with any stomach complaints.
