Family trip to Sri Lanka

Jump to last reply

Hi I'm planning a family holiday to Sri Lanka this end July/start August. I'll go with my wife and 2 kids, 5 and 3 years old.

1) What do you think of the ff itinerary ? Too much especially with 2 kids or just right ? Am I thinking of doing too much ?

Land in Colombo. Head immediately to Kandy for 2 night stay.
Nuwara Eliya and/or Ella- 3 nights. Do a solo hike to World's End.
Yala Nat'l Park - 2 nights.
South coast beach - Mirissa ? Unawatuna - 2 nights
Galle - 2nights.
Pass by Bentota for turles on the way back to Colombo.

2) Is it necessary to hire a car and driver for the whole trip ? Can we take trains to some places and just take cabs to go around ? Is it alirght to just use a car and driver starting from the time we leave Ellay/Nuwara Elliya ?

3) Any recommendations for drivers ?

4) My kids are keen to see some wildlife. Is the July/August timing for yala and other national parks right to sspot som wildlife ?

Thanks

Eric
