Why we like this deal:

With this one-of-a-kind Sri Lanka experience, you'll be whisked away by your private driver and tour guide to Uga Residences in Colombo to rest for the night before travelling to Chena Huts, a luxe hideaway inside Yala National Park. There, youll stay in an ultra-private cabin with its own plunge pool; and each day, youll be escorted on a game drive to explore one of the world's most biodiverse locations, home to crocodiles, peacocks and 44 mammal species, including the most dense population of leopards in the world. This package is exclusively available to Travelzoo members and designed to include an extended stay at Chena Huts, which was the overwhelming favorite among members who stayed here in the past.
