If you choose to wander the streets, keep your eyes open for the ever-changing style of architecture as colonial buildings exist besides Buddhist, Hindu, Islamic, Indian and contemporary styles of architecture.

Horton Plains National Park

Grab your breakfast to go as we start with a very early morning excursion to the Horton Plains National Park, which is the island's highest plateau. Famous for it's wildlife and magnificent views, we head out early to ensure we arrive there before it becomes shrouded in mist. Often said to resemble the highlands of Scotland this area of Sri Lanka's hill country offers amazing walking opportunities and is an absolute haven for bird enthusiasts and is the natural habitat of twenty one of Sri Lanka's endemic birds, with four species being endemic only in Horton Plains itself. If you are extremely lucky, you'll catch sight of the very shy purple faced leaf-monkey, which is listed as one of the most 25 critically endangered primates in the world.

Then, live on the edge as you walk along the gentle trek to World's End, a sheer precipice with a 1050 meter sheer drop into the valleys below. Approach the ledge carefully as the wind gently blows around you; it is said that on a clear day you can see over 81km away, all the way to the Indian Ocean.

Among the leopards of Yala

In most parts of world, leopards are pretty sneaky characters, lurking around at night to avoid their predators. In Yala leopards rule the roost, and they're pretty cocky about it. You'll see leopards strolling all over the place, apparently unperturbed by the cameras pointed their way. Here in Yala, the population density of these graceful big cats is higher here than anywhere else in the world, and today is your chance to watch them as they strut. Another amazing sight to watch out for are the herds of elephants wandering about the place, on their way to have a bath at one of the park's many watering holes. Needless to say, today offers endless amazing photo opportunities, so make sure your batteries are charged!
