Indian Ocean Conservation and Culture

Cost

from £3,680 pp

(ex international flights)

Duration

18 days

On this 18 day tour in the Indian Ocean, you will take part in conservation and contribute towards a sustainable future for the natural environments and local communities of both Sri Lanka and the Maldives. Whilst you're in this region of the world, you're also enjoy exploring the myriad of wild, cultural and historical experiences to be found in these magical countries. Learn all about the relationship between elephants and humans in Sri Lanka along with the local community and explore the lesser-known cultural and historical highlights in the surrounding countryside. Then head to the Maldives to explore the northernmost remote islands with their beautiful beaches, fascinating history and mangroves bursting with wildlife. Throughout the tour you will stay in simple lodges in the depths of the Sri Lankan countryside and local inns in the lesser-travelled areas outside of the Maldivian resorts. At the end of your stay, you will relax in the greater comfort of a beautiful eco-hotel.

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