SRI Lanka & Beyond is offering Australian travellers set on seeing the Indian Ocean's teardrop island the chance to save up to $2000 per couple.

Beyond Travel will also donate funds to the Support Sri Lanka campaign, created to assist families suffering after the Easter Sunday attacks.

The 14-day Wild About Sri Lanka tour begins in the seaside village of Negombo and ends in the capital Colombo.

The private tour visits Wilpattu National Park, Anuradhapura Sigiriya, Passikudah, Ella, Tangalle and Mirissa with the discounted price now from $2465 per person twin share on departures until December 31, 2020.

On this tour you will go off the tourist route and discover the backroads by private car with your own driver-guide and stay in historic hotels around the island including a two-night stop at the five-star Cinnamon Lodge Habarana and an overnight break at the four-star Cinnamon Wild Yala lodge in a jungle chalet.

Here you can watch the local wildlife while lounging beside the swimming pool or enjoying a special bush dining experience.

Book any 2019 or 2020 Sri Lankan tour as featured on the Beyond Travel Sri Lanka & Beyond website, of 10-days duration or longer, before November 29 and the company will make a donation to the Support Sri Lanka Initiative.

The initiative has been developed to provide both short- and long-term assistance.

For immediate relief, financial donations are urgently needed to assist locals both directly associated with the tourism industry - such as drivers and guides, as well as those affected down the supply chain - such as local farmers who sell produce to hotels.

Beyond Travel Group chief executive Michael Lavilles recently returned from a fact-finding mission to Sri Lanka where he saw firsthand the impact the 80 per cent decline in tourists has had, both socially and economically, on a substantial number of local families.
