Hosting the Sri Lanka Collection FAM Trip 2016

11. October 2016

Last week we were lucky enough to welcome a very cheerful group of 11 UK agents for the 2nd edition of The Sri Lanka Collection FAM trip.

«The Sri Lanka Collection represents a hand-picked portfolio of Sri Lanka's most exclusive hotels, villas and safari camps and its two best destination management companies (DMCs) or incoming tour operators. This small, UK-based company was conceived through a shared passion for Sri Lanka and a determination to raise awareness of the island’s exquisite yet little-known boutique hotels and experiences within the UK travel trade and media.»

After a few days of experiencing the quiet and luxury of some of the Sri Lanka top boutique hotels, these ladies, from the top travel agencies in the UK, were ready for a dive into the wild. After having acquainted themselves with our South African mobile tents that would be their home for the night, their experience at the camp started with the traditional rice and curry and a lesson about how to eat with your hand by Noel himself.

It was then time for an expedition into Yala National Park to track and watch wildlife until sunset. Back to the camp for some chilling time around drinks and a BBQ under the stars before going to bed early, lulled to sleep by the music of the jungle to wake up early the next morning for their last safari. And it was already time to leave them to new adventures, but not before offering them the traditional Sri Lankan breakfast and having them plant some new trees on the camp as part of our tree planting campaign.

We kept track of you ladies and expect to see you back in a few years when your trees have grown!
