Located in south-west Sri Lanka, Sinharaja is the country’s last viable area of primary tropical rainforest. More than 60% of the trees are endemic and many of them are considered rare. There is much endemic wildlife, especially birds, but the reserve is also home to over 50% of Sri Lanka’s endemic species of mammals and butterflies, as well as many kinds of insects, reptiles and rare amphibians.

We’ve had 2 wonderful holidays in this lovely island, and have managed to visit ALL the sites! Every one was memorable. Sinharaja is hard to get to, but we stayed in a lodge in the forest, and it was definitely worth it to get an early morning start and trek in the forest.
