Untamed Srilanka

This small island offers travellers a plethora of delights – historical, cultural and natural, all without travelling too far. Immerse yourself in Colombo’s street market or Negombo’s fish market, marvel at the World Heritage-listed ruins of Anuradhapura, climb to the top of the Sigiriya Rock fortress and spot elephants or perhaps leopards on an exhilarating game drive in Yala National Park. The cuisine is delicious and unique, a must for lovers of fresh seafood.
