There are so many great tours to be had on the beautiful Indian Ocean island of Sri Lanka, but this one is special, and will mean so much if you are a lover of adventure and wildlife. You spend four memorable days on safari in search of the elusive leopards at beautiful Yala National park, where you will also see so many other exotic animals and birds during daily excursions into the wild. Then it's off to Weligama for relaxing days beside the Indian Ocean.
Day 1
Colombo
After arriving at the international airport you will be met by one of our tour representatives and driven the one hour into Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka, where you check into your hotel for the night. During the journey you will be told about lots of the adventures that you can look forward to over the next 10 days. Relax after the journey then go out and explore seeing some of the city sights and trying some local dishes at one of the many restaurants.

Day 2
Colombo-Yala
Today after breakfast you will be picked up from your city hotel and driven to Yala National Park, a huge area of forest, grassland and lagoons bordering the Indian Ocean, in southeast Sri Lanka. It’s home to wildlife such as leopards, elephants and crocodiles, as well as hundreds of bird species. Inland, Sithulpawwa is an ancient Buddhist monastery. Nearby caves contain centuries-old rock paintings. Southwest, Magul Maha Viharaya also has ancient Buddhist ruins. Both are pilgrimage sites.

Day 3
Yala
Your first full day on safari begins with an early morning trip out to see the animals before the heat of the sun sets in. Yala is the island's largest national park and it boasts an abundance of wildlife including the elusive leopard - the hardest of the Big Five to spot - and magnificent wild elephants. Today you will see monkeys swinging through the trees and inspecting ruins of ancient civilsations which were built more than 2,000 years ago.

Day 4
Yala
You final day of safari trips in Yala National Park, so make the most of it. The park is famous for a leopard density, which is higher than anywhere else on the planet. This makes Yala Sri Lanka's most popular national park, attracting visitors from across the globe. These ‘Lords of the Jungle’ can be spotted prowling through the rainforest and across the plains - a real treat as they are normally so difficult to spot in their natural habitat.

Day 5
Yala to Weligama
Early this morning enjoy a final game drive in Yala National Park before returning for breakfast then beginning the journey to Weligama, where you will spend a relaxing five days beside the ocean. The journey to Weligama will take around six hours and along the way you can get a great insight to everyday life in Sri Lanka. On arrival check in to your new accommodation before going out and exploring the area.

Day 6
Weligama
Weligama, meaning Sandy Village, is an interesting blend of lively fishing town and beach resort. The sprawling main settlement and coastal road leads to the attractive sandy beach and there are a couple of coves west of the centre. Weligama's benign beach break is ideal for novice surfers and many visitors learn to ride their first waves here. After having fun in the ocean you can marvel at, and feast on, the denizens of the deep at the roadside fish stalls.

Day 7
Weligama
Another full day to relax and enjoy the delights of this ocean front resort. Weligama is so full of attractive places. The villages are filled with all kinds of people who are open hearted and are always happy to help visitors in every way.

Day 8
Weligama
Weligama's beaches are fascinating places to visit. They are always half occupied with fishermen who are busy hauling in their catches and mending their boats. A little way away from the beaches, the villages are filled with people working day and night to make ends meet. Instructors that give visitors surfing lessons are always kept very busy and the surfing schools can be found at either end of the beaches.

Day 9
Weligama
This is the last of your relaxing days beside the ocean in Weligama, so make the very most of it. After all your adventures on safari looking out for the leopards you will relish these balmy days soaking up the tropical sunshine and getting to know the villagers who make this region their home.
