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 - Kandy

You’ll be met on arrival at Colombo airport by your Car & Driver and taken to Kandy. On arrival in to Kandy check in to your preferred hotel for a three 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 5 - 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 two 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 Udawalawe National Park

Continue through the spectacular countryside of Southern Sri Lanka to Udawalawe National Park, perhaps travelling via the Horton Plains and World’s End. On arrival, check in to your preferred hotel for a two night stay.


Udawalawe is known for its Elephant Transit Home. Established in 1995 it helps rehabilitate orphaned elephants so they can be released back into the wild. At the home you can watch the elephants, but not interact with them as they need to remain as independent and wild as possible, to give them the best chance when released back into the park. The home is also supported by Born Free. The national park itself is home to vast herds of elephant, as well as an amazing amount of other mammals, birds and reptiles.


Day 9 - Beach

Continue to your chosen beach hotel, where your Driver will say goodbye as they drop you off. Spend a few days relaxing on the beaches of Sri Lanka.


Day 14 - Return

Return to Colombo airport by road, for your return flight to the UK.

KANDY, NUWARA ELIYA & UDAWALAWE by CAR & DRIVER


Combine Kandy, the hill stations and tea plantations around Nuwara Eliya and the wildlife-rich Udawalawe National Park, 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 the 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.
