Itinerary in Detail
You will be met by your driver guide on arrival at the airport and transfer to Sinharaja. (Approx 4.5 hours). Arrival at Singharaja gate office. Clients can walk to the Kudawa camp (10mins walk) or travel in the vehicles 200m closer to the camp. The camp is set up before your arrive, and includes a fully equipped kitchen, chairs and tables, hammocks, flushable toilets, showers and even cold beers available for purchase. And on your return from your afternoon activities, you will be welcomed back with a barbecue in a atmospheric forest-clearing setting complete with flame torches and campfire. Back to the campsite for dinner and overnight stay.
Clients will either have an early sit-down breakfast or take packed breakfast and lunch for an all-day Singharaja Forest exploration. Back to the camp in the evening.
After breakfast, proceed to Udawalawa National Park. Udawalawe, 200km south-east of Colombo, is best known for the 400 elephants that live there, and whole herds are often seen bathing and playing in the water. The park is also home to water buffalos, water monitor lizards, sambar deer, monkeys, the occasional leopard, and congregations of our many bird species. This protected reserve has much to offer, and 4WD open-top jeeps complete with park guides ensure that you can make the most of the experience. After the jeep safari, return for an around-the-campfire dinner. Visit the Udawalawa Elephant Transit Home en route to the park. There are up to 40 orphaned baby elephants being taken care of at any one time at Udawalawe Transit Home, which provides food, medical care, and everything else a baby elephant needs. They are released into wilderness when they are big and strong enough.
