Sri Lanka is stamping its mark as one of the prime family holiday destinations. It offers something for everyone keeping the parents, as well as the children happy.
The children love the random wild life they come across on their day to day excursions such as monkeys, Monitor Lizards, Mongooses, Palm squirrels and sometimes even wild Elephants standing by the busy main roads. The adults are focused on the safaris to try and find The Leopard or the Sloth bear. The big storks, Hornbills and Kingfishes too draw the visitor’s attention.
The activities such as the bike ride through the rice paddy fields and the little villages, Climbing the Lion rock, Walking through the tea plantations, White water rafting, Village tours drinking coconuts and eating rice and curry keep the children on their toes. The parents like to walk in the quiet ancient cities and the calm temples absorbing the slow peaceful walk of life of this Island nation.
The families that like to be adventurers and go off the beaten track have so much to explore. The Knuckles Mountain range is an amazing place for trekking and hiking. You could experience all the different climatic zones in Sri lanka within the knuckles range. You could walk in isolation and feel the real tropical jungles.
Climbing up Ella rock too is a great experience, seeing the southern plains and sometimes even the sea which is about 80 miles away.
After a busy tour the adults and the children will be ready to lie down on the golden beaches of Sri Lanka. Water sports such as surfing, Scuba diving and snorkelling can be very easily arranged locally.
Most of all the Sri Lankan people are very friendly and welcoming. The families will feel very safe blending with these gentle and helpful people.
