Camping Holiday in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka - described by Marco Polo as the most beautiful island in the world - is an increasingly popular destination for those seeking a holiday away from the usual tourist circuit. Known as the island of serendipity, it offers a wide variety of sights, terrain and accommodation. If you are seeking adventure, Sri Lanka offers hill country plantation estates to jungle, rainforests to tree houses alongside rapid rivers. Go in search of wild elephants and eagles, or adopt the bygone community life of the traditional Veddah villagers on an eco estate.
You will never be far away from beautiful countryside, wildlife , indigenous birds and plants. A car and driver is the sensible way to get around the island but mountain bikes, white water rafting, elephant rides, kayaking, all add to the fun. Yoga and ayurveda are alternatives for the calmer adventurist.

In search of the wild Sri Lankan Elephants
Micro nature in the wilderness. A wonderful experience for the hardy, adventurous and committed nature lover. Simple clay-hutted accommodation is blended into its environment of tropical, dry-zone forest, bordering the Northern boundary of Yala National Park. Or head out on a 3 day elephant trek with a team of wildlife and camping specialists. Tracks of elephant and other animals are clearly seen around the lodge. Excellent birding, 160 species have been counted in the area.
Rafting and jungle adventure in Kitulgala
Adventure, action and living with nature is key in this Robinson Crusoe hideaway. Owner, Channa, is the epitome of life in the woodland and on the river - safari shorts, braces, a woolly beard and a love of wildlife. Channa is an excellent host, inviting families, single travellers and adventurous couples into his self-built tree houses.
A world untouched by Western hand and a sanctuary never forgotten and often revisited. Located 2 hours from the airport and Kandy, bordering the Western province and Hill country. This sanctuary has been a pilgrimage site for thousands of years and remains a traditional working village cradled on one side by low mountains and lakes and on the other by tiny emerald green paddy fields.
