  • About Us

Dear Explorer, The more you tell us about you, the more it will help us to tailor-make your dream tour in Sri Lanka.  

Our Story


Founded in year2000 as a pioneering eco and adventure tourism company, over the years Eco Team has  emerged as a specialist in tourism, not limited to eco and adventure, but also in many other niche segments.
Eco Team believes that requirements and expectations of world travellers are changing rapidly and becoming more unique. As a result, tourism providers are no longer in a position to offer mass products to clients. We need to find the smallest niches and provide customised tour solutions. 
 

In this backdrop, we have now developed 10 specialised brands under the Eco Team umbrellaexcelling in activities on the ground, at sea and in the airfeaturing the most luxurious accommodation in tented camps and tree houses and providing tour solutions to high-end honeymooners, birders, hardcore adventure travellers and eco travelers.

Eco Team’s responsible tourism ethos and values remain unchanged, with the focus being on community benefit and partnerships, conservation through tourism, minimising carbon emission, and preserving local values and culture.


Turning 20 in 2020, Eco Team continues to grow from strength to strength and provides services to over 140 national and international companies across the globe. Founded by innovative entrepreneur Anuruddha Bandara, it is a company of ‘firsts,’ which has been a pioneering force behind many initiatives and one that constantly strives to make a difference in its every endeavour.

Our Service Values

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.
