The Sri Lanka Scimitar-babbler is one of 33 endemic species to be found there

Sri Lanka is a land with immense cultural diversity influenced by the Portuguese, Dutch and British - a land of ancient cities and National Parks such as Minneriya, Udawalawe and Yala that are home to Leopard, Indian Elephant, Spotted Deer, Sambar, Sloth Bear and Marsh Mugger Crocodiles. Birds are prolific with 33 endemic species including Sri Lanka Junglefowl, Crimson Flameback Yellow-fronted and Crimson-fronted Barbets, Red-faced Malkoha, Sri Lanka Hanging-Parrot, Chestnut-backed Owlet, Sri Lanka Green Pigeon, Blue Magpie Whistling-Thrush Yellow-eared Bulbul Bush-Warbler, Sri Lanka Scimitar Babbler and Ashy-headed Laughing-Thrush and Legge's Flowerpecker to name a few, plus a host of other migrants and residents. Our tour takes us to highlands, lowlands, plains and rainforest. We are also making a few cultural stops here and there. Throughout the two weeks we will travel through verdant scenery, stay at very high standard hotels, meet delightful people and enjoy a general sense of serenity.
