    FAQs on this experiential holiday

  • Is it necessary to book a minimum 3 nights?

    We can offer you a 2 night Junior Ranger Safari depending on the location.

  • Is this Sri Lanka tour available all year?

    Tell us when you wish to travel and we will advise you on the best route depending on where it is likely to rain during the two monsoons that fall on our island.

  • What if I need AC?

    Talk to us about your preferred accommodation and we can always create a bespoke Junior Ranger Safari.

  • How much traveling is involved?

    Once you get to your safari location - very little.

  • Can I end the safari with a beach stay and which coast should I choose?

    Yes, we can add on a beach stay. From November to April, the West, South West and Deep South of the island are bathed in sunshine and with calm seas. You can stay along this coast even in the Summer months of July and August but seas are slightly rough. From May to October, you find some of the world’s best beaches in the stunning East Coast where you can wade out for hundreds of feet into the clear blue shallow seas.
