Pinnawala & Peradeniya Day Tour


A day trip to Kandy can be considered wholly incomplete without a visit to the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and the Royal Botanical Gardens in Peradeniya.

At Pinnawala be prepared to watch some heart-warming sights of orphaned baby elephants being bottle fed, and other adolescent elephants cared for and bathed in the Mahaweli River. Here you can also learn about the plight of these majestic animals and the steps being taken to protect and preserve their habitats.

Meanwhile, the Royal Botanical Gardens in Peradeniya is an oasis of rare plant life and trees, with a vast spread of carefully tended gardens representing the 4000 species in Sri Lanka including orchids, spices, medicinal plants, and palms.

In Kandy you can enjoy a special daily cultural show that includes a colourful music and dance performance by traditional artistes, followed by a city tour that will take you through the city’s markets, curio shops, and a leisurely walk around the lake.
