Founded in 2000 as a trailblazing Eco and Adventure tourism company, Experiatal Journeys has evolved into the leading specialist in Wildlife Tourism and Experiential Travel across our destinations—Sri Lanka, India, and the Maldives. With our own accommodations featuring five specialised brands in Sri Lanka, we offer the country’s most unique Tented Accommodations and Lodges.

Recognizing the changing demands of global travellers, we understand the importance of catering to unique preferences. In response, we’ve shifted from mass-produced packages to personalised tour solutions, identifying the smallest niches for an unparalleled travel experience.

Our commitment to responsible tourism remains steadfast, emphasising community benefits, conservation through tourism, minimal carbon emissions, and the preservation of local values and culture.

Founded by entrepreneur and innovator Anuruddha Bandara, Experiatal Journeys has been a trailblazer, introducing various initiatives and celebrating 24 years of success in 2024. We proudly serve over 140 national and international companies worldwide, continuing to make a positive impact in every endeavour.

Exclusive Experiences

It’s all about what you will be doing. 

We take pride in offering the exclusive and unique experiences going beyond just the tourist highlights. We believe that no two persons on this earth could be the same, so therefore no holiday created should be the same too. With our unparalleled access to all the hidden corners, we don’t merely create holidays, we design experiences that money can’t buy.  

Genuine Encounters

It’s all about whom you are meeting.

Our tours are designed to grant you an intimate peak into the country and meeting real local people. With our special relationships cultivated over the years, our tours offer access into villages and homes to provide truly unique perspectives. This is something we are really specialized in. You do things together, share a meal or take part in a religious ritual; you become their guest but not a paid tourist.  

Spaces with Character

It’s about where you are staying. 

Our handpicked accommodations are way different to large chain hotels with conventional star ratings. We offers small properties with quality, character, ambiance and run by passionate people. The range does not limit to “hotels” and goes into Tented Camps, Lodges, Home Stays, Colonial Bungalows, Luxury Boutique Properties as well as Tree Houses that have won multiple awards and plaudits.

Passionate Sustainability

It’s about how we do things. 

We believe that the sustainability and conservation approach in tourism is not merely an option but a way of life. While offering you unique, unconventional experiences and encounters, we strive to stay conscious of the sustainability of our habitat, people and culture. You wouldn’t find the Elephant Orphanage, animal rides or shows, or any other experiences that exploit people or animals in our programmes.
