SUGGESTED ITINERARY

Day 1 - Depart
Fly from Heathrow to Colombo, arriving the next day. Other departure points including Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow are also available.

Day 2 - Habarana
You’ll be met on arrival at Colombo airport by your Car & Driver and taken to Habarana, where you’ll check in to your hotel for a two night stay. We have a selection of hotels available in the Habarana area.


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.

Day 4 - Kandy
Drive from Habarana to Kandy, perhaps travelling via the Rock Temple at Dambulla en route. On arrival in to Kandy check in to your preferred hotel for a two night stay. We have a range of hotel options available in Kandy.


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.

Day 6 - Kandy to Nuwara Eliya

Continue by road to Nuwara Eliya, perhaps travelling via the Pinnewala Elephant Orphanage. On arrival check in to your preferred hotel for a one night stay - we have a selection of hotel options in and around Nuwara Eliya.


Rolling hills and deep valleys shrouded in early morning mist are often the first things to greet travellers entering the hill country, an area that was nicknamed Little England due to its capacity for hosting English pastimes including hunting, fishing, boating golf and of course, tea drinking. While here you can also visit non-working factories and enjoy tea making demonstrations to learn the history of the process. Nuwara Eliya is also the gateway to the Horton Plains National Park famed for its stunning flora and fauna as well as the sheer precipice of World’s End and the Baker’s Falls.

Day 7 - Nuwara Eliya to Yala National Park

Continue with your Car & Driver to Yala National Park, travelling via some of Sri Lanka’s most breathtaking scenery and perhaps stopping to take in World’s End and other spectacular locations. Check in to your chosen property for a two night stay.


Yala National Park is not only the second largest national park in Sri Lanka but also the most visited. Not only is it home to a plethora of flora and fauna species, it is also blessed with an array of ecosystems, two pilgrim sites and the highest density of leopards in the world. Explore the park on a guided safari and track herds of Sambar deer, watc elephants frolic in the watering holes and if you’re lucky spot an elusive leopard.


Day 9 - Return or Beach Extension
Return to Colombo airport by road, where your Driver will say goodbye and you will return to the UK.

Alternatively, extend your Sri Lanka holiday with a stay in one of the wonderful beach hotels - we have a wide selection available. Your Driver will say goodbye when you arrive at your beach hotel, and pretty much any duration is possible on the beach. You’ll then be transferred back to Colombo airport for your flight home. It’s also possible to extend your Sri Lanka itinerary with a stay on the beaches of the Maldives or elsewhere.

HABARANA , KANDY, NUWARA ELIYA & YALA by CAR & DRIVER


Combine Habarana, Kandy, the hill stations and tea plantations around Nuwara Eliya and beautiful Yala National Park in the far south, with this flexible multicentre holiday, with your own private Car + Driver taking you wherever you want to go!


You'll be met at Colombo airport on arrival by your Car & Driver, and your Driver will be with you until you return to the airport at the end of your trip. You can take in and sights that you wish at your own pace - all you need to do is pay entrance fees locally. There’s no mileage limitation 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! If you’re extending your stay in Sri Lanka at one of the beach hotels then your Driver will say goodbye when you arrive there, and we’ll arrange a transfer back to the airport for your flight home.
