The Sri Lanka experience

Want to do something life changing with your next holiday? Well here’s your chance to explore and discover the real Sri Lanka where you will get to see some amazing scenery, meet friendly locals and volunteer on rewarding projects to help make a difference.

One of our favourite and most popular destinations, Sri Lanka has it all. This truly magnificent and uncrowded country has a wealth of culture, an abundance of golden sandy beaches with crystal clear seas, lush rain forests, 8 Unesco World Heritage Sites, masses of wildlife and plenty more to experience.

The Sri Lanka Experience trip will run on selected start dates throughout the year, including; 4th January 2020, 4th April 2020, 2nd May 2020, 6th June 2020, 4th July 2020, 18th July 2020, 1st August 2020 and 5th September 2020. We are able to add more dates if there is an interested group of at least 5 people.

"Honestly the best experience of my life with the best local staff and volunteers. There is such a good atmosphere around camp and the entire organisation. The volunteering programmes are so rewarding and you learn so much about the country and local community. Travelling across Sri Lanka was a once in a life time experience and I will forever remember this beautiful island."

Over recent years, Sri Lanka has become an up and coming destination and is regular voted as the must-see country to visit. However, Sri Lanka still remains largely undiscovered by mass tourism and still has that untamed feel, so now is the perfect time to visit!

The structured itinerary will allow you to make the most of your trip, taking in the famous and best sights as well as the not so known local treasures.

As we drive around the island, you will come across troublesome monkeys swinging in the trees around you, a herd of cows holding up the traffic and maybe even some wild elephants going for. Stroll up the road! With travelling distances kept short and plenty of sights to see, everyone will enjoy the huge diversity Sri Lanka has to offer without having to spend lots of time in transit.

Our three-week action-packed group adventure will allow you to learn all about Buddhism by visiting the famous Temple of Tooth Temple in Kandy, climb Sigiriya Rock (Lions. Rock), pick tea in ‘Little England’, swim under mesmerising waterfalls, trek to the World’s End, have a go at stick fishing in Mirissa, relax on the beautiful beaches and get up close to some amazing wildlife on safari!

Your time in Sri Lanka will be split between sightseeing, volunteering and relaxing. You will have the opportunity to help make a difference to the local community by teaching English, looking after children in day care centres or to help aid in the conservation of the endangered sea turtles at our hatchery or look after dogs in the nearby sanctuary.

Our volunteering programmes will allow you to immerse yourself into the local culture and make a positive impact in the area. All of our volunteer programmes listed below are located together on the west coast of Sri Lanka where you will get to spend your free time basking in the sun at the stunning beaches, catching a wave in the clear blue sea or chilling at a funky beach bar.

Over the course of two weeks you will have the opportunity to help on some of the below programmes:

Sea Turtles
Childcare
Teaching
Dog Sanctuary (+75)
Medical (+75)

As you get fully involved within the community, the one thing you will never forget is the genuine friendliness shown by everyone. Walking through the village of Akurala, or seeing the children wait for you at the community school with smiling faces – it’s an experience like no other.

You will travel by private mini bus in a small group of no more than 20, where you will get to make lasting friendships and memories. Our local coordinator will accompany you throughout your stay, so you can learn all about the local culture and history.

The real Sri Lanka Experience

Seeing all of Sri Lanka and meeting the amazing people there could have not been any more perfect. An incredible 3 weeks that I will never forget.

Samantha's story

Volunteering with my family in Sri Lanka

My family and I chose to volunteer in Sri Lanka last August for 3 weeks. We wanted to introduce the children to volunteering so that we could all help give something back to a local community.

Sue's story

Sea turtle conservation in Sri Lanka

My daughter and I volunteered with sea turtles last August and we would 100% recommend The Mighty Roar; we have even looked at doing another project in the next year.
