Sri Lanka honeymoons
Sri Lanka is the place for tropical island honeymoons with a difference! This jewel in the Indian Ocean not only has more than its fair share of beautiful beaches, but an extraordinary array of wildlife, National Parks, and UNESCO cultural sites to go with them. The island is ideal for tailoring a diverse honeymoon itinerary. You might want to camp in deluxe safari tents ready for dawn trips to see leopards, elephants, monkeys and all manner of birds, or wander around ruined cities so old that you'll be amazed at their complex designs and exquisite art. And then there's the food - more curry styles than you can shake a spoon at, and an explosion of street-food flavours. Top it all off with gorgeous hotels and boutique lodges and you have all the ingredients for the trip of a lifetime.

In focus: Deluxe safari camps
Sri Lanka's fantastic wildlife is no secret, but a luxury safari camp offers an exclusive way to experience it. The tents come with double beds & en suite bathrooms, and you'll be camping right outside one of Sri Lanka's National Parks, giving you direct access to dawn wildlife before anyone else turns up.
Responsible Travel in Sri Lanka
From rustic eco-lodges to conservation-first wildlife projects, Sri Lanka is overflowing with opportunities for the conscious traveller. When the tourist industry represents the third largest source income, its important that the country looks after it and that it, in turn, looks after the country.
Throughout our travels many in Sri Lanka we have been buoyed to see an ever-growing awareness from hotels that have started to push back on single-use plastics and explore alternative ways to keep you suitably hydrated and pampered. There are especially responsible safari camp operators too, such as the team from Mahoora who consider every step of their operation when it comes to scoring their RT credentials.
We've long enjoyed designing and operating slightly alternative programmes throughout the country, whether that be a cycling tour on the outskirts of Galle or a streetfood walking tour in Colombo; each an opportunity to keep a step closer to the real Sri Lanka experience.
