Sri Lanka is a friendly island nation boasting verdant scenery, characterised by terraced tea plantations and forest patches, and blessed with many surprisingly large national parks brimming with game and birds. These attractions, coupled with a fascinating history and vibrant culture, make this a truly exotic destination and a pleasure to explore. From the central highlands to the rich lowland rainforests, Sri Lanka is one of only a handful of magical destinations where it is possible to see every single country endemic in a well-planned trip such as this, making this extension a ‘must’ for the keen birder!

A single supplement of US$ 425 will be charged if you wish to have single accommodation.

•Bottled drinking water;
•All lodgings during the tour;

a) Due to constantly fluctuating exchange rates, we now quote our tours in 4 currencies (see website for all 4 currencies). The tour price is however fixed only in the currency printed in bold (US$), and the actual cost in the other currencies listed will be adjusted according to prevailing exchange rates at the time of final invoicing (usually 3 months before the tour.) The same applies to approximate domestic flight and single supplement rates, which are also quoted in the respective fixed currency.

b) Rates are based upon group tariffs; if the tour does not have sufficient registration (a minimum of 7 paying participants) a small party supplement will have to be charged.

c) Furthermore, these costs are subject to unforeseen increases in tour related costs and may have to be adjusted as a result.

d) Lastly, we may be forced to change or alter the itinerary and / or the designated leader/s at short or no notice due to unforeseen circumstances; please be aware that we will attempt to adhere as close to the original program as possible.

As noted above, gratuities (drivers, hotel staff, restaurants etc) are included on this tour. However, this does NOT include your leader/s. If, therefore, you feel that he/they have given you excellent service, it is entirely appropriate to tip them.

Please note:
•It is important for the comfort of your fellow travellers that you do not over-pack. Kindly stick to 20 kg (44 lb) for check in luggage and 8 kg (+-18 lb) for hand luggage.

•In certain areas that contain potentially dangerous animals you are confined to the vehicle and are, quite understandably, not allowed to exit.

•Fitness: This Sri Lanka tour does not require a high level of fitness, but participants should be reasonably fit and in good general health as most of the birding will be done on foot, and may require walking for several hours at a time. Should you have any physical limitations or medical conditions, please notify us in advance of departure. For much of this tour we will be well away from modern medical facilities.

This tour does not include any airfares. The tour will depart from Colombo International airport on day 1 by mid-morning. Further meeting details in this regard will be forwarded to you in due course. The tour will conclude in the mid afternoon at Colombo International Airport on day 11. If you wish to arrive early and/or depart late and would like assistance or advice in this regard, kindly contact the office.

Colombo is the main port of entry for international flights in Sri Lanka and is well serviced by all of the world’s major airlines. As our guests come from all over the planet we do not include international flights in our tour prices. We have the capacity to advise you on the best route according to your preferences but your local travel agent will best be able to book these flights for you. If you would like further assistance, kindly contact the office. IMPORTANT, please DO NOT book your international flights until you have consulted the office for confirmation on the status of the tour.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.

Note: Tour prices fixed in US Dollars, other rates subject to exchange rate fluctuations. Flight costs excluded.
