Hi Keith..

From Kalutara you can get to the Elephant Orphange/Millenium Foundation in a day trip, but will be long day, to see feeding time you will have leave hotel very early in morning.

Maybe think about a 2 day/1night trip, then take in Kandy too, lots to do and see on this sort of trip, and much more relaxed way too....

Malaria pills NOT needed at Kalutara, or Kandy and surrounding areas.

Regards

Dave

Hi Keith,

If you like to see the Elephants in Wild the closest national park from Kalutara is Udawalawe.

Hi Keith,

If you want to visit the Cultural Triangle (Dambulla, Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa) and Kandy it will be easier to combine the trip with Minneriya National Park as Uda Walawe National Park is in the opposite direction.
