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); a colorful array of flowering plants and trees, and a Hill Country famous for tea; 14 National Parks out of 100 areas protected by the government; and an Indian Ocean coastline boasting palm-fringed and sandy tropical beaches.
Maldives. Unrivalled luxury, stunning white-sand beaches and an amazing underwater world make the Maldives an obvious choice for a true holiday of a lifetime. The Maldives is home to perhaps the best beaches in the world; they’re on almost every one of the country’s nearly 1200 islands and are so consistently perfect that it’s hard not to become blasé about them. With some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world, the clear waters of the Maldives are a magnet for anyone with an interest in marine life. The richness and variety is astonishing; dazzling coral walls, magnificent caves and schools of brightly coloured tropical fish await you when you get down to the reef. In deeper waters lurk manta rays, turtles, sharks and even the world’s largest fish, the whale shark. The best bit? The water is so warm many people don’t even wear a wetsuit.

The complex of five caves with over 2000sqm of painted walls and ceiling found here are over 2000 years old and is the largest area of painting found in the world.

In a sheltered pocket, approached by a spiral stairway, are the famous frescoes. The summit of the rock, with an area of nearly one hectare, was the site of the palace while the outer wall was built on the very brink of the precipice. The UNESCO sponsored Central Cultural Fund has restored Sigiriya 5th century water gardens to their former glory

After the tour of Polonnaruwa, proceed to Minneriya for a Wildlife safari. Minneriya national park is one of the best places in the country to see wild elephants, which are often present in huge numbers, and wading birds.

Elephants, which can number 200 or more, come to feed and bathe during what is known as ‘the Gathering’; and flocks of birds, such as little cormorants, painted storks, herons and large pelicans all fish in the shallow waters.

Between the months of August to September, In Minneriya, You will also be able to witness the once a year event of the “ Elephant Gathering” in Minneriya. This is more spectacular than possibly any other wildlife event in Sri Lanka. During the dry season when water supplies start to diminish, more and more animals congregate around the Minneriya reservoir where grasses are rich and fertile. At any one time it is possible to witness up to 300-400 elephants. They are not migrating, they simply ‘gather’, to socialise, bathe, feed and possibly mate. Overnight stay Amaya Hotel.
