From The Wallawa you are driven up north to Wilpattu National Park home to some of Sri Lanka’s wildlife where you might be lucky enough to see a rare sloth bear. After two nights of premium camping, you will head to Sri Lanka's cultural triangle, home to ancient cities and historical sites.

Departing the Kandalama, you head to Kandy, the cultural capital of Sri Lanka. Arrive and check into The Kandy House, a superb boutique hotel about 30 minutes outside the city. With stunning architecture, stylish rooms and delightful gardens, The Kandy House has a real 'wow' factor. In the evening we visit the city to enjoy a traditional Kandyan dance performance. Our second day in Kandy is a relaxed one, taking in a visit to the Peradeniya Botanical Gardens and the famous Temple Of The Tooth with plenty of free time to wander around Kandy or relax at the hotel, with travel inside Kandy done from the comfort of a restored vintage car.

DAYS 9 & 10 TEA COUNTRY

Your driver will be waiting for you at Hatton station to drop you at Tea Trails, a hotel that has been wowing guests for a number of years now and is generally considered to be the finest in Sri Lanka. Aside from relaxing into the life of the colonial planter (minus the hard work!), there are activities available from the excellent tea tour to water-sports on the lake, hiking, climbing Adam's Peak (December to April) and white water rafting on the nearby Kelani River. These can be arranged by the excellent hotel staff.
