Responsible travel in Sri Lanka
While travelling in Sri Lanka, you’ll get the chance to experience genuine and respectful interactions with local people and wildlife too. Our Sri Lanka holidays are designed to give something positive back, through the trips we offer, the accommodation we use and the local projects we support. Read on to find out what responsible travel in Sri Lanka means to us.
Our Sri Lanka travel specialists
Our team know and love all things Sri Lanka. From our travel specialists to our marketeers, between us, we’ve travelled extensively throughout Sri Lanka. We’ve spotted elephants in Yala National Park, climbed Adam’s Peak alongside pilgrims and sipped cocktails on sandy beaches. We have a treasure trove of top tips to pass on to you so that you can get the most out of your Sri Lanka trip.
Our local project in Sri Lanka
In all our destinations we like to support a local project to give something back. In Sri Lanka, we’re proud supporters of the Rainbow Centre, a grassroots project which provides welfare, education, medical care and support to children living in poverty across South Western Sri Lanka. The work they do provides children with opportunities for development, helping them to break free from the cycle of poverty.
Our local partner in Sri Lanka
We work with a local partner in Sri Lanka that supports our sustainability mission and values. We use local guides and drivers during all our excursions in Sri Lanka. Not only does this make for a more rewarding experience for our customers, but it helps to put money into the pockets of the local people. You’ll also have the advantage of your guide’s local knowledge. Don’t forget to ask them where their favourite eatery is.
We’re always on the lookout for small-scale, authentic accommodation in Sri Lanka. We believe that staying somewhere that reflects the culture and nature of your surroundings really adds to your experience of the country. From tented lodges in the heart of a national park to a beach-side eco-resort, we aim for our accommodation options to showcase the diversity of Sri Lanka.
