This tour is great for culture vultures and is a fantastic way to learn more about Sri Lanka and see two of the most scenic parts of the island.
The Esala Perahera is one of the oldest and grandest festivals in Sri Lanka. Combine witnessing this spectacular event with seeing the Kataragama Perahera in Yala.
After breakfast, you will visit the Millennium Elephant Foundation and enjoy the Elephant Walk experience.
This afternoon arrive at Queen’s Hotel, where you will have your own private balcony with a fantastic view of the Esala Perahera procession. Make sure to be in your room by 4 pm, since the roads will be closed afterwards due to the procession. Return to your hotel after the procession for a good night’s sleep!
This morning, take a jeep ride through Yala National Park in search of leopards, sloth bears, wild elephants, wild boar, sambar and spotted deer, water buffalo and many species of bird; this is one of the best places in the world to see leopards. Early morning and late afternoon are the best times for wildlife sightings.
In the evening enjoy the Kataragama Festival, which is very vibrant and colourful.
