Sri Lanka is a wonderful family travel destination but with so much to see and do, it can be overwhelming. Our customized holidays for toddlers or older kids take into account travel times, distances covered in a day and weather. Here are a few travel tips to make your family holiday fun for everyone.

 

 

My kids are under 6 years, can they handle the local experiences?

We will discuss each activity in detail when crafting your tour including the duration, what time to wake up and leave (e.g; Sigiriya is best done early am, its about a 1000 steps, very doable, but the last bit of the ascent is windy and steep for young children).

 

 

Can I get a Booster seat or a toddler seat for my child?

Yes. Please ask us for images of the types of seats we have to suite different ages. *Please note that our vans do not have 3 point seat belts.

 

 

Are there Family Rooms in Sri Lanka?

Yes, many hotels offer family rooms with separate beds/fold-away beds for kids or you could book an interconnecting room. Some boutique hotels have a child policy and we will advice you accordingly. If you are traveling with older kids, note that some hotels do not allow more than three adults in a room.Kids above 12 are generally considered adults, but this can vary.

 

 

Are wildlife safari rides comfortable for kids?

The Jeep rides can be rather bumpy and are usually in open sided jeeps with bar handles for protection. The roof is generally canvas or metal but you will be safe from the sun and rain. Be prepared for a bit of wind, dust and the thrill of being in one of the top destinations outside Africa for Wildlife and you will have the time of your life.

 

 

What happens if the kids play up and dont want to do an activity?

Cost of entrance fees can be excluded from your tour cost, so you pay only if you go. Check with us about which activities are included and which ones are ‘optional extras’.
