Nature & Wildlife – Luxury Summer vacation – 15 Days 14 Nights

15 Days / 14 Nights

Quick look

Sri Lanka is a tiny tropical island on the southernmost tip of India. The terrain of Sri Lanka and the patterns of the monsoons contribute to generate diverse climatic zones; as a result of these climatic variations, Sri Lanka claims for immense flora and fauna.

The tropical paradise of Sri Lanka bears the title of “biodiversity hotspot”; of the world’s 36 territories that meet the criteria for this categorization, Sri Lanka is the second-best area to visit in order to witness wild animals. The wild “big four” of Sri Lanka include elephants, leopards, sloth bears, and blue whales; it is possible to observe all of these animals in a single day’s excursion.

In addition to this, the bird life of Sri Lanka is exceptionally diverse for its size, with 524 species documented, of which around 250 are migrants and 34 are indigenous to Sri Lanka.

On this journey, you’ll visit five national parks, each of which is special in its own way: Pigion Island is a marine national park where you can go snorkeling. Wilpattu is well-known for its leopards. Minneriya or Kaudulla is well-known for its world-renowned elephant gathering. A boat safari on Inginiagala Lake in GalOya National Park, where you will be able to witness amazing bird life, is another unique experience that can be had in Galoya National Park, which is a national park that receives fewer visitors than other national parks in the country.

And throughout your time at the Horathapola Estate, the Habarana rural village nature walk, and the Gal-Oya Kiriporuwa lake excursions, you will have the opportunity to learn about the local culture as well as the environment.

The altitudes inside the park range from 0 to 152 meters above mean sea level. The park covers an area of 1,317 km2 . The name Wil-Pattu originates from the Tamil word “Villu, ” which may be translated as “Lakes.” It is believed that the park contains around 106 natural water basins that are ringed with sand. Between the months of December 1988 and March 16, 2003, the national park was off-limits due to safety concerns connected to the Sri Lankan Civil War. The park is becoming more well-known among visitors for its leopard sightings.

The gathering of elephants is a phenomenon that is considered to be one of the natural wonders of the world and may be witnessed in Sri Lanka. During the gathering season, visitors will get the opportunity to see anything from one hundred to three hundred elephants in a single heard, making it the greatest gathering of Asian elephants in the world. During the dry months, from July to October, the tank acts as a’migration’ path for these enormous beasts from many of the neighboring locations as they seek water and new grass, which has all dried up elsewhere. This “migration” path serves as a safe haven for them during the dry months. They congregate in herds of up to 300 individuals at this time, marking the beginning of the greatest gathering of Asian Elephants ever seen.

Day - 07

After a leisurely breakfast, you will depart this morning for Trincomalee, located on the north-eastern shore of the island. Because of the tragic conflict in Sri Lanka, the northeastern portion of the island remained inaccessible to tourists for a good number of years. Because of the area’s large Tamil population, it has its own distinct culture, and for the better part of the last three decades, it has been cut off from the rest of the island. As an outcome of this, the northeastern part of Sri Lanka provides an experience that is strikingly different from that of the rest of the country. Because June through August is Trincomalee’s busiest season for tourism, prices for lodging and other types of accommodations may be higher than usual during this time.

Additional information about the region and its history will be given to you from your chauffeur guide, who will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Leisure afternoon

The history of Trincomalee may be traced all the way back to the fifth century BCE. Trincomalee is home to the natural seaport that is the fifth largest in the world and has been frequented by travelers and sailors dating back to the fifth century BCE. The Mahaweli, which is Sri Lanka’s longest river, empties into the Indian Ocean close to the city of Trincomalee.

The Koneswaram temple, which has a recorded
history that dates back to the third century BCE,
Fort Fredrick, which was built in 1623 by the
Portuguese and captured by the Dutch in 1639, the
harbor, which is the fifth largest natural harbor in
the world, and Trincomalee, which has some of the
most picturesque and scenic beaches in Sri Lanka,
are just a few of the places that are worth visiting in
Sri Lanka.

Day - 08

Nilavali in Trincomalee is one of the most well-known spots in the area for snorkeling. In the morning, you and your chauffeur guide will make your way to Pigeon Island in order to participate in a snorkeling adventure. Leisure afternoon.

Snorkelling at Pigeon Island Marine National Park

It takes around twenty minutes by boat from the main island sea show to reach the marine national park that is located on Pigeon Island, which is located on the East coast. At a distance of one kilometer from the diving site on Pigeon Island, visitors may observe stunning coral formations, eels, small schools of various fish, and lovely boxfish.

Drive: 110km, approximately 03 hour’s drive.

Pasikudah, often spelled Pasikuda, is a beach resort town located 35 kilometers to the northwest of Batticaloa in the Batticaloa District of Sri Lanka. The name Pasikuda translates to “Green-Algae-Bay” in Tamil. In the past, this location was a sleepy Tamil village located beside the Kalkudah River. Both the Indian Ocean Tsunami of 2004 and the Sri Lankan Civil War were responsible for the widespread destruction that occurred in Pasikuda.

One of the longest pieces of coastline that is protected by shallow reefs may be found in Pasikudah. Because the water is only a few feet deep and the current is weak in comparison to the rest of Sri Lanka’s coasts, people walk for kilometers into the sea.

Day - 10

Today, you will have the opportunity to choose whether you would want to spend your free time at the beach or at the hotel pool.

Day - 11

Today, you and your chauffeur guide will leave Pasikuda for Gal-Oya. The Gal-Oya is a river in south-east Sri Lanka that stretches for 67 miles (108 kilometers). It is the sixteenth longest river in Sri Lanka. After the river was dammed in 1948 as part of the Gal-Oya plan, the population of Gal-Oya increased. The Gal Oya project resulted in the formation of the 100,000-acre Gal Oya basin. We presently cultivate paddy, chillies, sugarcane, and potatoes in this area.

Bears, leopards, and elephants are just some of the animals that call the adjacent Gal-Oya National Park home. Located in the Gal-Oya National Park, Sennayake Samudaraya (Inginiyagala Lake) is one of the biggest lakes in Sri Lanka.

Drive: 100km, approximately 02 hour’s and 30 minute’s drive.

Gal-Oya National Park – Nilgala Jeep Safari

Because of the civil war, Gal-Oya National Park was closed to tourists for almost to thirty years, and to this day, neither locals nor visitors from other countries find any use for it as a tourist destination. This is due to the fact that Gal Oya National Park is one of Sri Lanka’s natural beauties that is relatively unknown. It has quietly persisted for much of its existence apart from the influence of man. It acts as a reminder of the way things used to be in the past. We think that it is the perfect place to go hiking in the unspoiled wilderness. Within the park you can find elephants, wild boars, four different kinds of deer, jackals, sloth bears, marsh mugger crocodiles, and a variety of rare exotic birds. All of these animals live together in harmony. It has an intricate ecosystem that is just waiting to be uncovered.

Day - 12

You will depart from the hotel this morning at around 5:30 a.m. to go on a boat safari on Inginiyagala lake. There is a reserve known as Inginiyagala located within the Gal-Oya National Park.

After the boat safari, you may rest at the hotel and enjoy the pool, or in the late afternoon, you can take a walk to the adjacent “Kiriporuwa” lake with a naturalist. Both of these options are great ways to spend your time.

The trip begins at 5:30 a.m., when you and your naturalist set off from the hotel. It’s a fantastic journey through breathtaking landscapes, and you could even see some species. The boat voyage takes around two to three hours, but the calm reservoir waters let you unwind.

Several species of birds, both those that live on Sri Lanka year-round and those that fly in for the winter, can be seen from the boat. Elephants can often be seen swimming from the mainland to the islands or from one island to another; crocodiles in the shallows are also possible.
