The Wonderful Wildlife of North East Sri Lanka
Best enjoyed between mid-March and mid-April, this extraordinary itinerary concentrates on the fabulous diversity of wildlife to be found in north and eastern Sri Lanka, both on land and below the sea.
Your accommodation will be in a comfortable safari camp, a luxury hotel and a pleasant beachside resort.
In the company of your private driver cum guide and various local naturalist guides, venture out to look for leopards, search for sloth bears, marvel at monkeys, observe Asian elephants, snorkel on coral reefs and perhaps also swim and snorkel with humpback and blue whales off the east coast: perhaps the ultimate marine mammal experience, and, to the best of our knowledge, only possible here.
During a window of roughly one month, the seas off Trincomalee become becalmed, resembling a lake. The visibility is remarkable; up to 300 metres at times. Significant numbers of sperm whales and blue whales congregate here at that time, and we are exclusively able to offer boat trips offshore to snorkel and swim with these gentle leviathans.
This is a Sri Lanka wildlife tour like no other – please ask for details.
