Sri Lanka is well known amongst wildlife enthusiasts as a destination filled with reward and surprise. Unique species, high levels of endemism and pristine habitats offer an opportunity to experience Nature at its best.

The experience will cover herpetofauna, birds, mammals and others. The group will be lead by Anslem De Silva and Gerry Martin. Anslem is one of the region’s leading herpetologists and has numerous publications under his belt. Gerry has been visiting and working in Sri Lanka periodically since 1997 and both will share their skills and experiences to build an experience of a lifetime!

Your chance to experience Sri Lanka’s wildlife and wilderness in a real and connected way!

Take back images and memories from a tryst with some of the most unique and amazing species on the planet.


Unlike most wildlife tours, this experience is a very real one. We will engage with the natural world as o p p o s e d t o w a t c h i n g i t f ro m a distance. You will gain new perspectives of animals, understanding how to delve into their world without being intrusive. There will be ample opportunity to build various field skills as well. All the locations we will be staying at have been hand-picked for the access that they offer us to spectacular species and habitats. We will experience animals like horned agamids, pit-vipers and crocodiles to leopards, elephants and primates. The bird life is truly spectacular on the island and the diverse habitats that we will cover will yield an equally diverse set of avian species. A truly incredible opportunity to experience the wilds of Ceylon!
