Birds of Sri Lanka

 - Price On Application

This birdwatching tour has been planned by experts and comes with a specialist guide. It can be designed to satisfy everyone from the committed twitcher to the amateur enthusiast and takes you to some beautiful parts of rural Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is a birdwatchers’ delight and attracts more than 400 species. The best time for birding in Sri Lanka is between November and March when the migrant birds have landed, but two distinct monsoon seasons and a hilly interior means there is plenty to satisfy you all year round.
