Explore Royal Botanical Gardens, Peradeniya

For enthusiastic horticulturalists, a visit to the beautiful Royal Botanical Gardens in Peradeniya is a must. The gardens are home to a rare collection of tropical exotic and indigenous flora and an impressive orchid house. The Gardens include more than 4000 species of plants, including orchids, spices, medicinal plants and palm trees and they are conveniently located on the outskirts of Kandy and so are easy to include in most itineraries. Although it is advisable to avoid the heat in the middle of the day, the time and length of your visit can be flexible depending on your interest and itinerary. Usually your driver will leave you to explore the gardens on your own, although we can also arrange for you to be shown around the gardens by an English speaking expert in botany. Our expert is a walking encyclopaedia and a true character and will make a visit to the gardens fascinating, even for those with very little interest in botany.
