Sri Lanka

A tropical paradise of golden Buddhist stupas, verdant tea plantations and majestic wildlife

Exodus is shocked and saddened by the horrendous attacks that took place in Sri Lanka on Easter day. Our hearts go out to all those affected by the terrible events.

We are pleased to confirm that all our customers and staff are safe and well. All customers in Sri Lanka are being contacted to ensure their continued safety until their scheduled departure.

If you are due to travel to Sri Lanka

For those due to travel to Sri Lanka please note the following policy in relation to your upcoming booking. We have no customers due to leave for Sri Lanka until 22 June.

  • Exodus monitors the United Kingdom Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) Travel Advice closely for every country we visit, and we follow their advice to the letter. Should the advice change to recommend against travel to a whole country we will not operate the holiday and offer all customers the chance to transfer to an alternative holiday, or request a full refund.
  • All customers should note the latest FCO Travel Advice for Sri Lanka. https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/sri-lanka. While the current advice is to remain vigilant and ‘to follow the advice of local security authorities, hotel security staff and your tour company’, there is no requirement to amend or cancel travel arrangements.
  • Therefore at this point in time, Exodus is not planning to cancel, change or amend upcoming departures due to travel to Sri Lanka, and we expect future holidays to be able to operate as normal.
  • If your trip is due to depart before the end of June 2019, we will be contacting you to discuss the situation and if necessary to discuss timing of any outstanding balance payments.
  • If your trip is due to depart from 1st July 2019 onwards, then our normal booking terms and conditions still apply.
  • Should the situation change we will of course be in contact with all customers to explain the actions we will be taking.


Tours in Sri Lanka

With sandy, palm-fringed beaches, jewelled cultural treasures and magical chance encounters with elephants all on offer, Sri Lanka trips have a magic all of their own. Visit the ancient rock fortress at Sigiriya, rising high above the rainforest canopy; see elephants in their natural environment, tugging at the grass and grazing on palm fronds; and watch out for darting leopards too. Discover rare species and the gemstones that first drew travellers here; explore paddy fields by bike; lose yourself in maze-like rows of highland tea plantations; and let juddering tuk-tuks zip you through the underbrush to hidden expanses of beach. 

Tours to Sri Lanka provide a fantastic mix of culture, history, people, food, wildlife and beaches, and Exodus – with the help of our expert local guides – promises to get you closer to the action than anyone else.

Highlights of Sri Lanka tours

1. Wildlife encounters: If you’re not lucky enough to see elephants grazing at the side of the road, Yala National Park is where it’s at. Here majestic elephants, powerful bears, skittish deer, languorous leopards and a rainbow of exotic birds can all be found. 

2. Friendly local guides: For most people, one of the best things about holidays in Sri Lanka is the warm charm of the people. Our local guides are chosen for their friendly nature, knowledge and enthusiasm, and will be able to tell you all about the history of the country and their way of life.

3. Off-the-beaten-track adventures: We’ll take you down back streets to see real-life Sri Lanka, eat with local people and really get to know what makes the country tick.

4. Local accommodation: All four-star, and run by local families, so customers get an authentic experience.

5. Personalised trips: Pick and mix from the normal itinerary of Sri Lanka tours to create an Exodus tailormade adventure that's perfect for you and your group.
