More than 60% of the trees are endemic and many of them are considered rare. 50% of Sri Lankan's endemic species of animals (especially butterflies, amphibians, birds, snakes and fish species). It is home to 95% endemic birds. The hilly virgin rainforest, part of the Sri Lanka lowland rain forests ecoregion, was saved from the worst of commercial logging by its inaccessibility and was designated a World Biosphere Reserve in 1978 and a World Heritage Site in 1988.

Because of the dense vegetation, wildlife is not as easily seen as at dry-zone national parks such as Yala. There are about 3 elephants and 15 or so[vague] leopards. The most common larger mammal is the endemic purple-faced langur.
Birds tend to move in mixed feeding flocks, invariably led by the fearless Sri Lanka crested drongo and the noisy orange-billed babbler. Of Sri Lanka's 26 endemic birds, the 20 rainforest species all occur here, including the elusive red-faced malkoha, green-billed coucal and Sri Lanka blue magpie.

Reptiles include the endemic green pit viper and hump-nosed vipers, and there are a large variety of amphibians, especially tree frogs. Invertebrates include the endemic Sri Lankan birdwing butterfly and leeches.

Sperm whale pods are seen in Mirissa mostly in a few days only in march and April. killer whales and short-finned pilot whales are also spotted from time to time.

CITY OF GALLE
Galle is the capital of southern Sri Lanka and is an economic hub in the region. The history of Galle is dating back many thousand years and it has some remnants that are mentioned in Ramayana (Ramayana is a story supposed to take place about 8000 years ago). Galle was an important seaport for merchants travelling from east to west and vice-versa. In the 15's Galle maritime capital and natural port were under the captivity of the Portuguese. later it was controlled by Dutch and English. Today the city is under the local administration after 450 years of colonial occupation. Galle Fort is a UNESCO world heritage site due to its cultural and historical importance.

GALLE FORT
The fort has a colourful history, and today has a multi-ethnic and multi-religious population. The Sri Lankan government and many Dutch people who still own some of the properties inside the fort are looking at making this one of the modern wonders of the world. The heritage value of the fort has been recognized by UNESCO and the site has been inscribed as a cultural heritage UNESCO World Heritage Site under criteria iv, for its unique exposition of "an urban ensemble which illustrates the interaction of European architecture and South Asian traditions from the 16th to the 19th centuries.

The Galle Fort, also known as the Dutch Fort or the "Ramparts of Galle", withstood the Boxing Day tsunami which damaged part of the coastal area of Galle town. It has been since restored. The Galle Fort also houses the elite Amangalla resort hotel, located near the Dutch Reformed Church. It was originally built in 1684 to house the Dutch Governor and his staff. It was then converted into a hotel and named then as the New Oriental Hotel in 1865, which catered to the European passengers travelling between Europe and Galle Port in the 19th century.

TURTLE HATCHERY
There are many sea turtle hatcheries along the western and southern coastal belt. Most of them are engaged in protecting endangered sea turtles. The sea turtle hatcheries collect the eggs that are been sold by the fisherman and hatch them. These hatchlings are released to the sea later.

MADU GANGA BOAT RIDE
A cruise on a modern motorboat is the best way to explore the natural wealth of Madu Ganga, the islands in the wetland are largely inaccessible by road. The inhabitants are also using boats and more often paddle boats as the means of transport. Seerendipity tours offer particularly appealing boat trips around Madu Ganga. This Ramsar Wetland is one of the most visited natural attractions on Sri Lanka’s west coast, with riverscapes to quiet thick grown islands and mangrove forests with sites of immense natural interest. There is plenty of opportunities to spot fascinating wildlife based in the aquatic environment, throughout the tour.

SEA TURTLE CONSERVATION PROJECT
Projects have been launched to conserve the population of turtles that are reaching extinction and such projects are found along the southern coast of Sri Lanka where turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. The turtle digs a hole on the Beach, Lays her eggs and covers it with sand where it is supposed to, incubates in the heat of the sun. What often happens is, that the eggs are dug out by fishermen and sold to people who consume them.

  10. Anja:

    Six jam-packed days of adventure through Sri Lanka. My favourite was the Simnharaja rainforest. I definitely recommend the whale-watching tour on the south coast! Not a “relaxing” week but comfortable, nonetheless. I wouldn’t put any stock in what others have said about accommodation. They were all clean and comfortable. Highly recommend!

  11. Jacinta:

    We really enjoyed the trip. Gihan was a perfect guide and took us to so many great places for us see beautiful nature. Also, the hotels were much better than expected. I especially liked the hotel in Mirissa. It is an exhausting week but you get so much out of it, so very good for a first impression on Sri Lanka:)

  12. Ruban:

    This whole trip was a whirlwind from start to finish. But our guide, Gomez, had our backs the whole time. We were only in Sri Lanka for a short time but it was jam-packed. The whole process with Seerendipity was seamless and the customer service we received was second to none. This is a great way to see the natural beauty of Sri Lanka with a twist of adventure, in a super short amount of time 10/10 recommend.

  13. Paula:

    Do it. You won’t regret it. I feel like I got to see so much in a week. It’s not a ‘relaxing’ pace, but we covered so much ground and saw so much each day. Wonderful experience!

  17. Gheena Hamdy:

    We booked with Serendipity. It was our first trip after the months-long quarantine restrictions. Our driver/guide was very young, sadly I can’t remember his name. We had the same driver and the vehicle from the beginning to the end and I find it very convenient. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very punctual and we felt it was very safe with him. we were one of the first on Yala gate for entry due to skilful riding. We were super pleased with our guide.

  18. Kusal mihir:

    Best way to see the natural beauty of Sri Lanka with a twist of adventure. Most places we visited there were very few people. The hotels are also largely empty.

  19. Michael kiron:

    This trip was one of the best experiences of my life. If you love nature, adventure and wildlife you will love this trip. The company has adopted all the safety protocols and we felt very safe throughout the trip. They even provided us with handwashing liquids and face masks. Good job.

  20. Gihan lama:

    Fantastic adventure tour with some exciting every moment. Trekking, hiking, bird watching, water rafting, safari all are very interesting. We wanted to go out with kids after the lockdown (COVID-19) but did not like to go to crowded places like museums. We thought of taking the nature tour and I’m happy we chose it. Everyone liked the trip.

  21. Abood Smith:

    A great trip for natural lovers and adventure seekers, with a diverse range of experiences from Jungles to Beaches. Nice cosy hotels with access to nature, the trip is a great way to get to know locals.

  22. Aneesha harilal:

    The village tour+jungle trek in Kitulagla was fantastic with close association with the village folk. with safari, jungle trekking, beach stays the very interesting trip, highly recommendable. Our Gude Dilum was a young guy and very friendly.

  23. Rithu Akarsha:

    Whale watching trip was a bit strenuous and we had to travel many miles in the sea to watch them. Rest of the trip was good with plenty of time to enjoy nature. A lot of interesting activities. Our guide Silva was very good and helpful.

  24. Harvey Line:

    Our first trip to Sri Lanka and we were looking forward to having a very nice trip with Seerendipity. One of our friends recommended us this local tour operator, therefore, we did not have second thought booking the trip with them. Everything was perfectly organized and it was a perfect tour itinerary to experience nature of Sri Lanka. With dozens of activities such as wildlife tours, whale watching, elephants watching, river rafting, trekking, bird watching, boating, it was one of teh best tours I ever didi booked.

  25. Mohan Sandeep:

    The experience was very nice! Our guide gave us much information about all the fain and flora we saw. We’re lucky enough to see a large herd of elephants in Udawalawe and we could spot 4 giant whales during the whale watching trip. During the trip, Gamini (our driver guide) stopped at nice restaurants all the time allowing us to sample delicious food and he stopped at an ATM machine to help us out. If I visit Sri Lanka again definitely book the trip with the same local company and Gamini.

  26. Marije Gauthier:

    I traveled with my daughter on this trip and we had an amazing adventure. The wildlife, outdoor activities, rainforests, local culture, and beaches were what this trip was all about. Our tour guide Malan was awesome, and his passion for Sri Lanka was noticeable and inspiring. He has a great sense of humor, was easy-going, flexible, always attentive, available, and ensured we had a great experience. The first few days were quite rainy; however, as we moved along on our adventure, the weather cleared and travel was drier and a bit more enjoyable. The hotels weren’t avergae, cozy small places, but were quaint, comfortable, and usually had air conditioning. We ate well, and experienced the local culture daily. It was an amazing trip and we were able to travel to several areas of CR and see so much in 6 days. Never a dull moment!

  27. Anderson:

    Our guide Sam was excellent, he was very knowledgeable. The perfect itinerary for nature lover bit of activities.

  28. Miliband:

    So much of exposure to nature within 5 days, we did not believe that we could have done all activities mentioned in the tour itinerary page but Malan (our driver/guide) was a very experienced guy and he completed the trip without any lapses. Moreover, he gave us plenty of time to enjoy teh sightseeing. Fantastic trip with nature.

  29. Illias jmaes:

    Trekking through the Sinharaja rainforest was one of the kind experience for us. Never had such a fantastic experience amidst dense foliage. It is hard to believe that such a virgin forest is still alive.

  30. Brigette:

    Wonderful tour with plenty of opportunities to feel nature. I did not know that Sri Lanka has such a wast area of jungles, it was a brilliant experience to rafty along with forested area and trek through the remote village, virgin rainforests. The guide was very knowledgeable and speaks perfect English.

  31. Shelley:

    If you love being active and having a variety of exciting activities to do, this trip is for you! Fantastic!

  32. Gunther salei:

    Lot of nature

  33. Jain sing:

    Sri Lanka is an amazing country with fascinating Fauna and Flora. The trip was packed with thrilling adventures and it was great fun. Our guide Kusal was very friendly and helpful, he planned everything very well for us.

  34. Rebecca Simon:

    Perfect private trip with plenty of nature and activities, barbeque dinner with Kandy was excellent.

  35. Louise:

    This trip is a great way to see and experience Sri Lanka – from trekking through tea gardens, rainforests to boat rafting through jungle.

  36. Gonzales andrew:

    This trip will satisfy the sense of Adventure with day actives that puts one in the elements . Sri Lanka is in its early days of tourism and there are ample opportunities to learn and explore . The food is very good and Vegan friendly . There are ample opportunities for photography . The costs are low. Sadly despite the locals taking great pride in their appearance, their vehicles and their houses , there are much rubbish on the road sides. Plastic is a the biggest issue hence it is best not to add to this problem. Compared to other adventure trips, this one ranks quite high and I highly recommend it

  37. Simon:

    The travel itinerary is very useful in understanding the overall requirements and focus of the trip. Special attention to fitness rating – as this is accurate.

  38. Danilea Nevad:

    Hotels are OK, middle-class average but we got delicious local meals everywhere and option to have European meal also was there. Very interesting trip with river rafting, swimming, whale watching and many more. OOps our guide (Lakmal) was excellent.

  39. Shelley shama:

    Kind of tour that should not be missed

  40. Binoy supa:

    The tour was good, however, the hotels were average. all of them are small properties with cosy, nice, clean rooms and good food too. Lakmini luxury lodge was my favourite with a highly personalized, friendly service.

  41. Emily:

    Nice tour enjoyed thoroughly

  42. Milaan Daas:

    Good itinerary

  43. Jennifer Kiron:

    As a first timer, travelling on my own, I was really nervous. But Seerendipity gave a fantastic tour itinerary with an array of destinations, with fun-filled activities and a very good driver/guide to go around with. I am so glad I took the plunge with an organisation that until then I had never heard of. It has truly opened new horizons and possibilities for the future.

  44. Shanaya Lama:

    This was a private tour, which is one reason we liked it most. Every interesting activity as the way we wanted to do it. We had 2 grown-up kids and they did not like to wake up early morning and therefore we started the trip every day at around 9.00 AM. We spent more time than allocated for some activities if it had been a group tour we could not have done it. An excellent trip for our family because we are fans of nature. Excellent tour itinerary, good guide, and good organization.

  45. Jasper Ageli:

    The cream of nature tour was excellent and really showed many natural jewels of Sri Lanka. Our driver/guide Gamini was invaluable spotting wildlife and giving information of the local area. The accommodation was OK and most of them are located in beautiful places, giving easy access to nearby tourist places. Budgeting can be difficult but there are always options to either go out for meals or buy food in local supermarkets along the way. Restaurants often add 10% service charge and 13% tax to meals – this is written in small print at bottom of menu. We were advised that using a credit card incurs 13% tax, so this is useful to know when deciding how to bring money. Both US dollars and Rupees are accepted throughout the trip but you are more often than not given change back in Rupees whichever currency is used to pay. People never had trouble getting access to cash machines, although some machines had run out of funds/didn’t work, so best not to leave funds to run too low before getting cash out. Remember to bring a lightweight rain mac and water shoes as the trip includes many activities like white-water rafting, boat tours, rainforest trekking. A travel towel may also come in useful if going to nearby beach/river and plenty of mosquito repellent. There are some long travel journeys (max 4 hours) but scenery is all part of the holiday.

  46. julius:

    The driving is endless on this trip. There was a lot to see and do as well.

  47. Rachel:

    For those who want a bit more activity while on holiday and to get off the beaten track, this is a great trip. From trekking through rural areas, jungle trekking and boating in the sea to meet whales. I couldn’t recommend this trip enough A++

  48. Lima michael:

    I never thought that we could do all activities mentioned in the description page. Our guide Mohan was a very experienced guy and managed to do everything without any lapses and he also gave us some leisure during teh trip.

  49. Andreas Gomez:

    Hotels are small except the beach resort. However, an interesting trip itinerary. Our guide/Silva was very good and friendly.

  50. Alam El Sis:

    It was excellent with Udawalawe safari, I have never seen such a huge herd of elephant in one place before. Very nice trip with rainforest, bird watching, beaches. Our guide Saman was very friendly and knowledgeable.

  51. Menon Johnson:

    I highly recommend this tour if you’re a wildlife and nature lover! Highlights include the white-water rafting in the river (spotting elephants, crocodiles and exotic birds). Our tour guide Malan was friendly and enthusiastic and made the experience really enjoyable. His knowledge of the natural world is impressive, which is exactly what you want from a guide.

  52. Raymond Hamilton:

    Boat tour with cinnamon island and mangrove lagoon was the best experience for me. Very nice tour with a lot of activities. Good hotels, food and very nice guide with a very comfortable sedan.

  53. Marija Timani:

    Cream of nature was a great trip for us as it really provided a good coverage of many of the major natural attrctions of Sri Lanka and included severalfew cultural experiences and helped us appreciate Galle fort

  54. Fellicia:

    This trip is a great way to see Sri Lanka without being confined to a vehicle. Whilst it is an active trip, it is not a race, so take your time and really enjoy the scenery because it is worth it.

  55. Kiron Dutta:

    We did not like the hotel in Sinharaja all teh otehr hotels were OK. Our guide was very good, very knowledgeable.

  56. Payaz:

    Loved the Hike, trek and water rafting tour around Sri Lanka. What a beautiful country to travel around and going off the beaten track is a great way to do it. This tour was physically challenging at times but the experiences made it well worth it.

  57. Jonathan:

    Sri Lanka is amazing and the people couldn’t be more friendly. Loads to see and do and great range of challenging but doable activities on this trip.

  58. Felicity:

    When I travel I love to do the j usual and interesting. I was so surprised on what Seerednipity offers. It is the best of everything, perfect guide to work with you to create the holiday you dream of.

  59. Fiona abermann:

    This is a fantastic trip for active travellers. Although this is an active adventure, the reward for being physical is being able to get off the tourist track and in amongst the villages with the very friendly locals. Considering the nature of the trip, be prepared to go with the flow, should plans need to change for safety reasons, as they did with us due to river levels being too high for rafting. Seerendipity made sure that this change did not affect our overall experience and in fact we then saw more than we were expecting of this wonderful country. Fantastic food, guides, wildlife and scenery!

  60. Ruban:

    Perfect 5 days for us and we enjoyed a lot. Good hotels with average facilities, good food, good guide and comfortable vehicle.

  61. Luke Roula:

    Gute Organisation im Vorfeld durch Intrepit und super geplant während der reise durch den reiseleiter. Viel Abwechslung und Spass. Viel über das Land erfahren.

  62. Nicholas:

    This is an activity based trip but there is time to rest and recover in between. You will need good footwear for hiking. Always have hat, high SPF sunscreen and insect repellent. Sri Lanka is a good destination to enjoy the outdoors and this is an excellent tour for people who enjoy that.

  63. Mable wood:

    There should be more time to relax because we were on a holiday

  64. Roland John:

    I had never seen such a large number of wild elephants in a place. However, whale watching trip was not that much appealing because we had to travel for nearly 2 hours, before encountering the first animal.

  88. Roula Kurup:

    Short trip with 6 days but it is not short of interesting activities. The perfect way to get close to nature, even you sleep with nature.

Our driver/guide Kusum was very friendly and helpful.

  89. Eleanor:

    A great way to get off the beaten track and immerse yourself in the Sri Lankan local culture. Hiking theKitulgala and jeep safari at udawalawe is memorable.

    Sri Lanka Adventure tour with Seerendipity was a lot of fun! it was recommended by one of my friends who did it with Seerendipity. A diverse experience through gorgeous Sri Lanka.
