Day 1 - Arrive in Colombo
When you touch down in Colombo you will be met by our representative for the short drive to the Wallawwa, where you start your holiday in style. Tucked away amongst tropical vegetation and small villages, this old colonial manor house is the perfect place to relax after your long journey.

Overnight: The Wallawwa

Day 2 - Travel to Wilpattu National Park
This morning, your private chauffeur-guide will meet you for the four hour drive into Wilpattu National Park. After you have settled in to your rustic safari camp, there will be chance to head out by jeep with some of your fellow campers for an adventure in search of leopards, elephants, bear, primates and stunning birds. When you return there will be a tasty dinner and time to swap tales by the camp fire.

Overnight: Leopard Trails Camp

Day 3 - Wilpattu National Park
Rise early to see the park waking up on your morning game drive. Sightings of leopard and sloth bear are frequent, and the numerous lakes appeal to a colourful range of aquatic birds. The lack of crowds makes safaris in Wilpattu especially rewarding, as you enjoy wildlife viewings and beautiful scenery pretty much to yourself.

Overnight: Leopard Trails Camp

You will be driven inland towards Kandy, stopping en route for a delicious lunch. After lunch, continue your journey, arriving at your hotel in the hills above Kandy in the afternoon.
