Description of Sri Lanka tailor made tour, 13 days
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetYala National Park is believed to have the world’s highest density of leopards, with about 35 residing within the park's boundaries. Other animals in the park include elephants, sloth bears, deer, monkey, mongoose and crocodile, as well as over 130 recorded bird species.
We work with experienced rangers within the park and hotels who strive to protect the animals and the habitat they live in. This will ensure you see the wildlife you want in a way which protects the land. Fees paid for park entry go toward the smooth running of the park.
We are proud to support the Leopard Guardian Project at Yala National Park. This is a programme intended to help safeguard leopards in Yala National Park, Sri Lanka - one of the best places in the world to see leopard.
Minneriya National Park is home to 24 species of mammal, including approximately 200 elephants. We work with experienced rangers within the park who are conscious of the need to protect the animals and the habitat in which they live. By working with reputable rangers we ensure you see the wildlife you want in a way which protects the land. Fees paid for park entry go toward the smooth running of the park.
Plastic pollution is one of the most unnecessary threats facing our environment. In 2018 we launched our One Bottle At A Time initiative to replace disposable plastic water bottles with refillable canisters across our destinations. From Summer 2019, we will be providing refillable water canisters in our vehicles throughout Sri Lanka, meaning our travelers are not generating plastic waste through the daily use of water bottles (which on a full day of touring can be numerable). We also send our guests a wooden toothbrush to help avoid using hotels’ disposable plastic brushes, and educate clients about the limited recycling facilities in Asia, and best-practice regarding waste-reduction.
PeopleOur vacations are designed to enable our clients to immerse themselves in local places and experiences and we make sure that, wherever possible, the income they bring to a destination goes back into the community. In this Sri Lanka itinerary you will have the opportunity to meet local farmers and their families who grow rice, sweet potatoes and spice crops in the fields surrounding Sigiriya.
One of our core values is to collaborate with local, responsible companies and partners who share our focus, beliefs and passions. An ongoing exchange of information guarantees that we can all continue to improve our work around responsible tourism. In Sri Lanka, we work with local guides, local operators and hotel partners, and will offer locally owned accommodation where possible.
This tailormade itinerary is based on private travel in Sri Lanka, not in a large group. By traveling in this way we have minimal disruptive impact on the communities visited and are able to stay in small, locally run accommodation, where possible, that is not suitable for larger coach tours.
