Sri Lankan Paradise

Day 1 : Colombo Airport - Pinnawala - Kandy

Welcome to Colombo. On arrival at Airport our representative will help you with a seamless transfer to Pinnawala in an air-conditioned vehicle. The Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, established in 1975, commenced with seven orphans. The original objective of establishing the orphanage inclined more towards tourism, but soon became a conservation and educational centre. With the help of experts, Pinnawela started a scientific captive-breeding programme for elephants. The free movement of the herd enhanced the chances for individual elephants to get together and mate. The nearby river played a dominant role in this regard, and in 1984, the first baby of Pinnawela was born.

Proceed to Kandy, The Colombo-Kandy and Kandy-Nuwara Eliya are two of the most scenic roads of Sri Lanka; Colombo-Kandy road passes through rubber plantations and rice paddies, Kandy-Nuwara Eliya road cuts through paddy fields and seamless tea plantations.
