Enter to win a fantastic Sri Lanka wildlife holiday

The island of Sri Lanka offers biodiversity to rival any continent, with a wealth of exciting wildlife.

As well as countless species of birds and reptiles, elephants, wild pigs, buffalos, langur monkeys, toque macaques, sambar deer, leopards and elusive sloth bears are just some of the many animals that can be seen with luck, patience and the skill of local guides.

In fact Sri Lanka’s varied habitats make it one of the best countries in South Asia for watching wildlife, and our prize will allow one lucky winner and their travelling companion to enjoy superb encounters with species in their beautiful natural habitat, and to sample much of the fascinating history and culture of the island.

Rickshaw Travel specialises in ethical wildlife experiences and supports projects to promote natural environments and help local communities.

Accommodation on its Sri Lankan tours is in small-scale, authentic hotels and guesthouses that offer a warm welcome, and its trips are designed to provide employment to a wide variety of local people.


After a flight from the UK to the island’s capital Columbo, the winner and their companion will travel to Kandy for an experience perfect for lovers of food and culture. 

The tour then takes in the colonial hill station of Nuwara Eliya at the heart of Sri Lanka’s tea-plantation area and Ella on the edge of the hill country with its sweeping scenic landscapes.

There will be an option to hike Adam’s Peak or Ella Rock before moving on to join a jeep safari in Yala, the country’s premier national park and home to about 30 leopards and hundreds of elephants.

Then it’s back to Colombo for a tour and high tea before returning to the UK.
