Tea, sea
and safari

A verdant teardrop island of tea plantations, thick jungles, golden coasts and UNESCO World Heritage sites, Sri Lanka has it all for adventure seekers.

Begin by venturing inland to the lush Hill Country; spend time learning about the journey from tea leaf to cup, before embracing your wild side as you get the chance to spot leopards on a guided safari. The trip ends with blissful seclusion on a picture-perfect, palm-fringed golden beach.
