Welcome to Sri Lanka and the start of your adventure with On the Go Tours. Upon your arrival at the Bandaranayke International Airport you will be met by our local representative and transferred to the Peradeniya Railway Station to board the train leaving for Ella (train times will be advised closer to date - approximately a 3.5hr journey). On arrival in Ella, meet up with your Chauffeur Guide and proceed to your hotel.
Today enjoy a trek around Ella visiting Little Adam's Peak.
Early morning leave for Kitulgala (approximately a 3.5hr journey). This is an area of rolling hills, tropical rainforests and winding rivers. The sleepy riverside village of Kitulgala owes its popularity to the Kelani River which offers exciting Grade 3 and 4 rapids for rafting. The breathtaking scenery here was used for the filming of the Oscar-winning classic “The Bridge over the River Kwai” by David Lean. Check in at Rafter’s Retreat Eco Lodge. Afternoon at leisure for White Water Rafting (all activities are to be booked and paid directly at the site).
Today is free for you to opt for various activities on offer in Kitulgala including a Makandawa Rainforest Trek and canyoning.
This morning leave for Yala (approx. 6hr journey). Check in at Leopard Safari Campsite. This park is famous for its high density of leopards, perhaps the highest in the world. You are also sure to see elephants and sloth bears. There is a plethora of reptilian species and platoons of crocodiles. As is common in Sri Lanka there is a huge diversity of stunning birdlife including migratory species such as the flamingo. The uniqueness of the park is the sheer diversity of the habitat: dense jungles suddenly gives way to lagoons and open plain areas and the park has a simply beautiful sea front. On completion of your jeep safari return back to the campsite for dinner.
Today enjoy a second jeep safari within Yala specifically on the hunt to spot the elusive leopard. Afterwards we proceed to Kalutara (approximately a 5.5hr drive). Upon arrival, check in to your hotel.
Enjoy a day at leisure on Sri Lanka's coast.
Today marks the end of your adventure with On the Go. After breakfast and hotel check out we will transfer you to the airport in time for your onward departure flight.
