Sri Lankan Elephant Experience & Far East Cruise

Relax on the white sandy beaches of Sri Lanka and immerse yourself in culture, exquisite dining and a safari experience like no other. Let your worries ebb away surrounded by glorious sunshine, crystal clear blue waters and big beautiful palm trees. No visit to Sri Lanka would be complete without a trip to the best National Park on the Island and a stop off at the Elephant Transit home. Here you can see native elephants having their lunch time snack before taking a jeep safari through the park to see all the amazing wildlife on show. Imagine herds of elephants, wild buffalo and if you’re lucky a rare sighting of an elusive leopard. Not only will you get to do all this, but throw in one night in Singapore and a 10-14 night cruise around Southeast Asia, and you have the makings of once in a lifetime holiday.

Udawalawe National Park and Elephant Transit Home: The Elephant Transit home is sponsored by the Born Free Trust and is where injured or orphaned elephants from around the island are brought and given treatment and care. Once the elephants are strong enough and old enough they are relocated in the wild at Udawalawe National Park. Udawalewe National Park is an area of 31,800 hectares, which was declared a protected sanctuary with full national park status in 1972. The park area, which falls within two provinces of Sri Lanka, is surrounded by mountain ranges. The terrain of the park is a mixture of grassland, which of all Sri Lanka’s wildlife reserves best rivals the Savanna of Africa and shrub jungle. Teak plantations, water holes and two important factors make this park special – the large Udawalewe Reservoir and the Walewe River, both of which ensure a supply of water for the fauna within. Internationally renowned for its large herd of elephants, the park is also known for several species of Deer, Wild Boar, Wild Buffalo, Jackals and very rare sightings of Leopards.
