Good to Go

You can holiday to Sri Lanka without having to quarantine either on your arrival in the country or on your return to the UK. There are also no travel advisories in place against travel from the FCDO meaning you can book with complete peace of mind.

The Elephant Transit Home, supported by the Born Free Foundation, is the place to visit whether you’re a big elephant fan or not! The centre cares for sick and injured elephants, or those that have been orphaned, and rehabilitates them to a point where they can be released back into the wild – usually the Udawalawe National Park down the road. Most of the individuals here are playful and rowdy youngsters, so watching the resident elephants at their four times daily feeding time is a lot of fun!
