If Tarzan went to Sri Lanka...

If Tarzan went to Sri Lanka is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Family-friendly Itineraries.

This tour is an Ampersand favourite! If Tarzan went to Sri Lanka we are sure that he would do something along these lines. As the name suggests, this is the perfect trip for adventurous wildlife enthusiasts; to add to the sense of adventure we have arranged stays in mud huts, tree houses and tented accommodation and the most daring can even sleep out in the open under the stars. 

Start with whale and dolphin watching on the western coast at Kalpitiya and visit Wilpattu National Park and the ancient cities and temples in the Cultural Triangle. Go walking in the hills known as "The Knuckles" before heading off to one of Sri Lanka’s most unexplored national parks Gal Oya. Explore the misty plateau of Horton Plains before descending down to the coastal plains where you can camp in Kumana National Park and spot leopards and bears. Continue on Koggala Lake near Galle to stay at Sri Lanka's most exciting new sustainable design hotel, Tri Lanka, before heading to Sinharaja, Sri Lanka's last virgin rainforest. End your trip amongst the mangroves in Bentota and enjoying the coast for your final nights.

This is the ideal trip for anybody young or old wanting to have an adventure, meet locals and soak up the amazing history and natural beauty that this island has to offer.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
