Day 1 Yala or Uda Walawe National Park/Sinharaja: Morning departure by road to Sinharaja (approximately 4½ hours from Yala or 2 hours from Uda Walawe National Park). After check-in, this afternoon set off on a trek within Sri Lanka's only remaining primeval rainforest. The vegetation is many layered as in the Amazon or Congo, with rare orchids blossoming. Other than the sound of cicadas chirpping, the only other noise is that of rain! There is a huge range of endemic wildlife, especially birds, and many kinds of insects, reptiles and rare amphibians. Return to the Rainforest Ecolodge for time to relax and enjoy the spellbinding views or take a dip in the natural pool found in the middle of the rainforest.

Day 2 Sinharaja/Southern beach resort or Colombo: This morning, you will proceed on another trek within the Sinharaja Rainforest, in search of the extraordinary flora and fauna that is found here. The density of the forest makes it difficult to spot wild animals, but leopards, elephants and deer do roam here. You're most likely to see lizards, snakes (most of them are harmless), birds, monkeys, lots of butterflies, wild plants and insects. 

The tour concludes with a transfer to your choice of southern beach resort or Colombo and includes a stop en route in Galle. Once the chief port of Ceylon, Galle is one of the best-preserved colonial-era cities in Southeast Asia and has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
