Natural Wildlife Wonders of Sri Lanka is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Family-friendly Itineraries.

What better way to experience the natural beauty of this island than exploring its rivers, lakes, mountains, jungles and ocean? Using a wide range of accommodation which can include mud huts, tree houses and caves (yet without necessarily sacrificing on comfort) this trip is ideal for nature lovers of any age with a good sense of fun and adventure.

Go white water rafting down the warm Kitulgala River surrounded by dense tropical jungle, trek on the misty Horton Plains, reminiscent of the Scottish Highlands, sleep in a treehouse or even a mud hut on the banks of a gem filled river (you can go prospecting too!) and relax in its natural Jacuzzi beneath the waterfall. Next, explore the fauna and flora in Sinharaja, recognised by UNESCO as being a unique habitat, see herds of elephants and possibly even leopards in Yala National Park.

For the grand finale go whale and dolphin watching where you have excellent chances of seeing both blue whales and dolphins. Enjoy a hard earned rest by finishing the trip on the most beautiful of beaches with a choice of water sports on the nearby river.

This tour is purely a suggested itinerary; it can be booked as it is or alternatively used as a starting point for creating your own ideal holiday in Sri LankaIf you'd like to see similar trips, take a look at our collection of Honeymoons as well as our favourite WildlifeActive, Trekking and Beach itineraries.

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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
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
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
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
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
