New Voyage Privé

Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destination

Sri Lanka is a lush, tropical island paradise, known to ancient Greek mariners as Taprobane. Arab traders called it Serendib – hence the word "serendipity", meaning discovery by happy accident. It was famously described by Marco Polo as "undoubtedly the finest island of its size in the world".

This is a culturally rich and environmentally diverse country, with 9 World Heritage Sites (the oldest dating back to the 3rd Century BC), 86 species of mammals (including elephant and leopard) and more than 400 bird species (including 26 endemics). It also boasts a colourful array of flowering plants and trees, a Hill Country famous for tea, 14 National Parks out of 100 areas protected by the government, and an Indian Ocean coastline, complete with palm-fringed and sandy tropical beaches.

Visit Buddhist caves of Dambulla
Located in North-Central Province, this UNESCO World Heritage Site dates from the 1st century BC. This amazing complex of five caves was first used as a refuge by a former king who, on regaining his throne, commanded magnificent images carved into the rock. The kings who succeeded him further improved these caves, which today contain more than 150 Buddha images, the largest of which is a colossal figure extending over 15 metres. This temple is the ideal place to admire Sri Lankan art and is an important historical site.
4x4 Safari
Minneriya National Park, located between Habarana and Polonnaruwa, covers 8890 hectares and is home to a rich fauna and flora with hundreds of animal species including elephants and leopards. The characteristic of this park is its reservoir built in the 3rd century which, during the dry season, becomes the ideal place to observe the wildlife in its natural setting.
Visit to the Gardens of Peradeniya
The Peradeniya Botanic Gardens can be found just outside of Kandy, and are noted for their rich, vibrant and varied collections of tropical plants and flowers. Sat across 146 acres of land, these stunning gardens boast around 4,000 species of plants. The most important specimens of the garden include palms, orchids, gymnosperms, and flowering trees.
