We originally planned to visit Habarana staying at the Cinnamon Lodge for 3 whole days. However the flights out mean that we will be arriving 19th August at 13:35 and by the time we arrive at the hotel it will probably be the evening. We have the 20th and 21st but we will leave on the 22nd (hopefully in the afternoon, giving us the morning). Our main priority is to see wild elephants (and also have the opportunity to ride on them or wash them as I have seen in some posts, as long as it does not cause them any hard or distress). We would also like to see a tea plantation and as we are in the cultural triangle, we would like to visit Sigiriya (where I would like to see the from the top if possible) and visit other cultural areas.
Can someone tell me what will be possible - I know we will have to make concessions but the elephants are a must and we would like to know what is possible in the time we have.
