Sri Lanka Introduction - Explore with your own Car & Driver

A brilliant way to get to know this charming country - spend a few days with your own Car & Driver taking in key sites at Kandy & Habarana, with beach time to finish - BOOK BY 09 OCTOBER.

This style of trip will allow you to take in the sights that you wish at your own pace - all you need to do is pay entrance fees locally. There’s no mileage limitations, and your Driver will discuss your itinerary to create the perfect trip - they’re full of local knowledge and will have plenty of suggestions for you!


Day 1 - Depart

Fly from Heathrow to Colombo, arriving the next day. Other departure points including Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Dublin are also available.

Day 2 - Negombo

You’ll be met on arrival at Colombo airport and transferred to the Jetwing Sea Hotel for an overnight stay.

Day 3 - Kandy

This morning your Driver will collect you from your hotel for the drive to Kandy, where you’ll check in to the Earl’s Regency Hotel for an overnight stay.

Sri Lanka’s second largest city, Kandy is famed for not only its history, artefacts and temples, but also for its tea, stunning scenery and lush botanical gardens. The most visited site is the famed Buddhist Temple of the Tooth, home to the tooth relic, said to be a piece of Buddha himself. There are also a number of temples including the Lankatilaka Temple and the Gadaladeniya Temple as well as some beautiful gardens such as the Royal Botanical Gardens. Surrounding Kandy are rolling tea plantations and mountainous, thickly forested hills that offer fantastic walking and hiking opportunities. Your Driver is available to take you to wherever you wish to visit.

Day 4 - Kandy to Habarana

Drive from Kandy to Habarana, perhaps travelling via the Rock Temple at Dambulla en route. On arrival check in to the Habarana Village by Cinnamon for a two night stay.

Habarana is a great base from which to explore much of the Cultural Triangle as it is roughly central within easy reach of Dambulla, Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura. It is also an ideal gateway to safaris in both the Habarana Jungle and the Minneriya Sanctuary, home to a great many Sri Lankan elephants as well as the leopard, loris and sloth bear. Your Driver will help you make the most of your time in this fascinating region.

Day 6 - Beach

Return to Negombo by road, where your Driver will say goodbye as you check in to the Jetwing Sea Hotel for a further three nights.

Day 9 - Return

Transfer back to Colombo airport for your return flight to the UK.
