The house is set in a tea estate with spectacular views across to the Knuckles Range. Wildlife, and especially birds, are plentiful around the house and garden and there are excellent local walks or, for the more adventurous, trekking possibilities. Jungle Tide is the perfect place to relax and see the real Sri Lanka.

The centre of Kandy, a World Heritage City, is only 40 minutes' drive away and here there are excellent shopping and other urban facilities as well as major cultural and tourist attractions such as the Temple of the Tooth and the famous annual Perahera festival. Other important attractions including Sigiriya, Dambulla, Polonnaruwa and Pinnawella Elephant Orphanage can easily be done in a day trip.

If you want to experience Sri Lanka away from the hotspots, but still with easy access, Jungle Tide is the place for you.

Kandy is the 'cultural capital' of Sri Lanka and a World Heritage City. The city centre includes theTemple of the Tooth, the holiest place of Buddhist worship in the island. There is also Kandy Lake and a nature reserve close to the centre as well as excellent shopping and other city facilities including cricket test matches.

Just down the road are the splendid Peradeniya Botanic Gardens, a great place to spend a day and have a picnic. Kandy was the last part of Sri Lanka to be taken by the British and its history and culture include spectacular dance and the annual Perahera festival - the world's biggest street parade - in July or August depending on the full moon.
