Elephant adventures in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka continues to be an extremely popular destination for those travellers seeking friendly adventure surrounded by the beauty of stunning beaches, rolling hills and lush tea plantations.

This June marks one year since peace returned to the teardrop island and as the summer months are dry and full of sunshine, this is the perfect time to visit.

Sri Lanka’s wide variety of activities makes it ideal for families. Climb to the summit of Sigiriya’s famous Lion Rock, passing an overhanging rock where ancient portraits still adorn the rock wall, before reaching King Kasyapa’s summer palace where the views are breathtaking. The setting for the film ‘The Bridge on the River Kwai’ is the perfect location for rafting, swimming and more water-based activities, while children will love discovering more about the national animal by visiting a shelter that looks after orphaned baby elephants, making them strong before releasing them back into the wild.

The 16 day Elephant Paradise Family Holiday starts from £1299 per adult / £919 per child (minimum age five years) including 14 nights B&B accommodation (12 nights hotel, one night resthouse, one night jungle camp (one overnight flight), return flights, some meals and transport (minibus, train, 4WD, boat, canoe, elephant).
