Sri Lanka at a glance

  • Surrounded on all sides by the shimmering Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is a stone’s throw from India; separated only by the diminutive Palka Strait.

  • Sri Lanka was a British Colony until as recently as 1972, when the name of Ceylon was formally dropped and the country once more returned to embrace its unique and varied culture.

  • There is a huge amount of amazing wildlife native to the country to see and get up close to in any one of the many national parks such as Yala and Willpattu.
