Sri Lanka Birding Tours

The small, friendly island nation of Sri Lanka provides one of the most enjoyable and rewarding birding tours imaginable. With plenty of endemics, most of which are extremely easy to locate, comfortable lodges and an abundance of wildlife, it makes perfect sense that birding in Sri Lanka has become an extremely popular attraction.

Our Sri Lanka – Endemic Birds & Big Game tour targets all 34 endemics and other wildlife highlights of the island. We commence at lowland rainforest sites, looking for specials that include Sri Lanka Spurfowl and the vibrant Sri Lanka Blue Magpie. Next we ascend the terraced highlands of central Sri Lanka in search of more Sri Lanka birding wonders. Overwintering specials here include Indian Pitta, Pied Thrush and the lovely Kashmir Flycatcher, while the rare Sri Lanka Whistling Thrush is one of many hill endemics. Situated in the dry zone, Yala National Park and the saltpans of Bundala provide excellent Sri Lanka birding, however this is also where we concentrate on Sri Lanka’s big game, including Leopard, Asian Elephant, Water Buffalo and Sloth Bear. The verdant Sinharaja Forest provides our final opportunity to mop-up the remaining Sri Lanka endemics, highlights being Red-faced Malkoha, Layard’s Parakeet, Green-billed Coucal, Sri Lanka Frogmouth and the recently described Serendib Scops Owl. Our tours offer the perfect combination of a Sri Lanka birding tour and Sri Lanka wildlife tour.

What our clients say about tours to Sri Lanka

  • Enjoyed Clayton very much. He has great potential as a leader.

    BT, Sri Lanka 2013
  • The guides for the tour, both the local guide and David Erterius, were exactly what I had hoped for: extremely skilled birders with extensive knowledge, who can find birds that I would never have seen on my own. On top of that, they are both very nice guys. I especially appreciated that both of them volunteered to skip lunch and go with me in search of Oriental Dwarf Kingfisher, a bird I had dipped the day before. Don’t ask me how they did it, but we managed to find it and I was able to make a great movie clip of the bird. This anecdote is a perfect illustration of the kind of dedication they had towards the participants.
