Coronavirus - Covid-19 Pandemic

Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are and your family are all safe and well and we wish you all the best over these difficult times.

In view of the well documented implications of the unprecedented worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, we want to reassure you that that the safety and well-being of all of our touring groups is very important to us and that we are closely monitoring advice from the Government, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and ABTA.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are supporting our staff who are in self isolation.

Our office is now in full lockdown and we have very limited email access but those who are able to work are working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs and our goal is to ensure that anyone due to travel in the next seven days has been updated on their tour and given a list of options available to them, we will not however have the resources to enter into conversations over these options at this stage.

We will continue to contact tour organisers whose travel plans have been effected.

Best wishes at what is a difficult time for us all and thanks for your understanding,

The Burleigh Travel Team

Tour Destinations in Sri Lanka

Colombo is a fascinating city, not only for its comfortable blend of Eastern and Western culture, but also for its mixture of past and present.  It is the commercial capital of the country and attractions include Buddhist and Hindu temples, numerous churches, the old parliament building, the zoo, museums, and art galleries.

As Sri Lanka’s hill capital, Kandy is perhaps also its most beautiful town.  It is 488 metres above sea level, and next to Colombo, Kandy is Sri Lanka’s most visited place. The focal point of the town is the golden-roofed Dalada Maligawa, where the sacred tooth relic of the Buddha is enshrined. 

The varied attractions in Sri Lanka's South make it one of the countries most rewarding areas to visit and experience Sri Lanka at its most traditional. Stretched out along a great arc of sun-baked coastline the area remains essentially rural, where the laid-back pace of life still revolves around coconut farming, rice cultivation and fishing while the string of temples and giant Buddha statues that dot the coast provide a constant reminder of the importance of Sinhalese traditions.

Gracing a test match or first class cricket venue is usually a privilege reserved for elite cricketers, but in Sri Lanka your young cricketers can experience a little part of what it is like to play at a test match venue in a country where cricket is its most popular sport; something that will stay with them throughout their cricketing careers.
