A real wilderness experience for nature lovers

Head out to Sri Lanka's dense rainforest wilderness for an unforgettable wildlife experience, a paradise for nature lovers and adventure enthusiasts

First of all, let’s say that Sinharaja Forest Reserve is not for everyone. You'll have to trample through thick rainforest, wear special socks to protect your legs from leeches, and watch out for huge spiders. The accommodation options here are also more basic than in other parts of the country.

That said, for nature lovers, this could be a highlight of your trip. Sinharaja Forest Reserve is home to some of the richest biodiversity in Sri Lanka, and is the best spot for birdwatching in the country. Carpeted in thick forest, there’s no driving around in jeeps. Instead you'll be on foot, listening to the sounds of the jungle and spotting a huge array of wildlife up close and personal. This is immersion in nature at its finest.

If you're travelling between Galle and the Hill Country, Sinharaja Forest Reserve is a great place to break the journey.
