Other occupants are elephants displaced from their natural environs by development projects or those found wounded. Visitors could see the baby elephants being fed milk from gigantic feeding bottles or bathed in the river which flows nearby – an unforgettable sight! Established in 1975, by the Wildlife Department and National Zoological gardens which subsequently led to a breeding programme through which more than twenty five elephants have been born since 1984.

Beruwala – is in an idyllic location on the northern tip of a long stretch of dazzling golden sand. The palm fringed bay curves gently round a cluster of small rocky islands which serve as a natural breakwater ensuring that the sea is always as blissfully calm as the atmosphere within the resort. Beruwala was originally settled in the 8th century and it is not hard to see why the original immigrants chose to remain here, just as it draws people from far and wide to its peaceful shores today. As you head inland the foliage becomes more dense and lush and the air becomes thick with the scent of tropical flowers. The palm shaded road is dotted with shops selling local handicrafts and jewellery and there is a small selection of restaurants in the area should you wish to venture outside of your hotel.

Colombo – the trade and commercial capital has long been the traditional gateway to the Orient. Sri Lanka’s largest city, it is located on the west coast and draws together all the cultures, religions and influences of foreign lands into a pot-pourri of sounds, smells and a kaleidoscope of colour. The original traders and settlers – the Arabs, Portuguese, Dutch and the British have left in their wake churches and monuments, names and religions, costumes and food and smatterings of their languages which have been absorbed into the speech of the Sri Lankan. Today, Colombo is a fascinating city – a happy blend of east & west, past & present, with a charm of its own. A less known but amazingly true fact is that Colombo has a superb range of high quality restaurants serving food from all over the world and some of the best shopping opportunities in Asia. The main seaport of Sri Lanka is in Colombo & adjoining it, is Pettah, a local bazaar & trading area. Other places of interest are the beautiful Buddhist temples, Hindu temples, mosques, the historic Wolfendhal church, (1749) residential areas where you find the stately homes of the affluent, the Ceramic Corporation famous for its well known brand “Noritake” and ODEL the renowned shopping centre.
