If you’ve always dreamt of taking elephant tours Sri Lanka is the place to do it! The tropical island of Sri Lanka is home to its own special elephants that are a sub-species of the Asian elephant; with their own particular characteristics. This unique tour, Sri Lanka Elephant Tour, will take you inland to meet this much loved gentle giant. You could find yourself in a sanctuary befriending an orphaned elephant who lost a leg in a snare and so faces an uncertain future, or watching baby elephants being fed, or walking with over 70 elephants and watching them take a bathe.

Take a jeep safari to learn about the Sri Lankan elephant’s wilder side in their natural habitat. Elephant tours Sri Lanka will also expose you to the UNESCO World Heritage sites, people and culture of Sri Lanka. Come and make the elephants of Sri Lanka your travelling companions. You will be staying at some of the finest hotels that combine the genuine spirit of this wonderful country with modern creature comforts.
