Duration

15 days

This two week wildlife tour brings you the best wild encounters that Sri Lanka and the Maldives have to offer. In this tour, you will cover the wild side of Sri Lanka by spending a full day in Yala National Park where you will hopefully be lucky enough to enjoy the sight of leopards and sloth bears. Udawalawe National Park, another stop on this itinerary, is famous for being the natural habitat for Sri Lankan elephants while a safari in Bundala National Park immerses you in the largest bird paradise in Sri Lanka. You will also have the chance to take a bird watching boat tour at Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary followed by blue whale watching off the coast of Mirissa. After a remarkable seven nights in Sri Lanka you will fly to the Maldives to explore its underwater marvels. Whale sharks and manta rays call the Maldives home along with many other marine animals. On this itinerary, you will visit some of the best dive sites that the Maldives has to offer.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
