Sri Lanka holidays are popular for many reasons – the cultural attractions, the beautiful beaches, the delicious cuisine, the welcoming people. But wildlife also plays a big part. With lush jungles and dense grasslands, this diverse island is home to all kinds of animals. On a safari holiday in Sri Lanka, you can expect to see gentle elephants, elusive leopards, pint-sized sloth bears, and so much more.
Considering its petite size, Sri Lanka boasts an extraordinary amount of wildlife. This place is home to hundreds of bird species, more than 120 types of mammal, and nearly 200 species of reptile. On your Sri Lanka safari, your guide will be able to point all sorts of fascinating creatures, from tiny multi-coloured birds to scuttling insects. And, of course, you’ll be able to see much larger animals like deer, buffalo, monkeys and crocodiles.
When deciding where to go on your Sri Lanka safari, you’ll be spoiled for choice. In the south, Yala National Park is best-known for its high population of leopards, while central Minneriya National Park is famous for its annual gathering of elephants. Or you could go on an elephant safari in Udawalawe National Park. This park is home to hundreds of Sri Lanka’s giants, and there’s an ethical elephant centre nearby where orphaned elephants are looked after and returned to the wild.
However you want to do your safari holiday, we’ll make it happen. You could add on a beach break, or tick off some of Sri Lanka’s cultural landmarks and exciting cities. Or perhaps you’d prefer to go on a Sri Lanka tour, which includes a few days on safari? Whatever you’re looking for, our travel experts will help you plan the perfect getaway.
