Day 1 – Arrival in the Wilpattu National Park

Jeep safari, entry to the national park, lunch and dinner, overnight in a tent

You travel towards Wilpattu National Park. Here you will move into your tent in the spacious camp. Your overnight stay in a tent is relatively luxurious as you have your own small bathroom with toilet and shower, a fan and a flashlight. After lunch, set off on a national park jeep safari. The national park is interspersed with dense jungle, which is however repeatedly interrupted by clearings and water points. In addition to turtles, lip bears and crocodiles, some elephants also live here. In addition, the probability of seeing a leopard is highest in Wilpattu National Park. After you have thoroughly explored the wildlife, drive back to your safari camp. In the evening you can review your Sri Lanka Safari review by a campfire.

Day 2 – Drive to Anuradhapura

Breakfast, transfer to Anuradhapura, overnight at the hotel

In the early morning visit Mihintale, the origin of Buddhism in Sri Lanka. After checking in and freshening up in your comfortable Anuradhapura hotel, it’s time to visit the ruins of Anuradhapura. Your accommodation is equipped with fan, air conditioning and private bathroom as well as a swimming pool. The city was founded 2500 years ago and was the capital of the country for over 1000 years under the ancient kings of Sri Lanka. The archaeological park offers the opportunity to explore the history of the country up close. If you want to do some sport despite the heat, you can explore the park on a bike.

Since Anuradhapura has no real city center, your accommodation is very quiet and allows you to let the impressions you have taken effect.

Day 3 – onward journey


The next morning you leave Anuradhapura and continue your Sri Lanka tour. When visiting religious sites, please make sure you wear suitable clothing (shoulders covered and at least knee-length leg wear), no headgear and you have to take off your shoes regularly. For this reason, we recommend taking socks with you, which are very pleasant on the heated floor of the temple complex. Taking pictures is allowed, but you should make sure that you do not have your back turned to a Buddha statue.
