A place where wild elephants roam alongside local villagers, the province of Wasgamuwa is home to one of the highest levels of biodiversity in Sri Lanka – and is fast becoming a unique example of how humans and nature can coexist to achieve a more balanced and sustainable future.
Up close encounters don’t come much bigger than this, so immerse yourself in the local culture and ecology – working alongside the community to study and protect all types of endangered wildlife, in the heart of beautiful Sri Lanka.
From species surveillance to animal foraging research, there is much to learn and much to be done – so experience the trip of a lifetime and work with, not against, the natural world to unlock its full potential.
Discover what exciting adventures await on our once-in-a-lifetime Sri Lanka Elephant and Wildlife Expedition.
