New tour: Sri Lanka – Cricket, Whales & Wildlife

Blue Whale

Blue Whale

This autumn, the England cricket team heads to Sri Lanka, and the prospect of watching a Test Match at the iconic Galle International Stadium as well as some first-class wildlife is enough to get the pulse racing of any wildlife and cricket lover (of whom there are several in the Naturetrek office!).

In November, cetaceans such as Blue, Bryde’s, Sperm and Short-finned Pilot Whales are present as well as Bottlenose, Risso’s and Spinner Dolphins, whilst on land the wildlife we will look for includes Leopards, Elephants and Sloth Bears as well as a wonderful variety of birdlife.
