Udawalawe Day Excursion & visit to Elephant Transit Home
Home to scenic landscapes and rare wildlife that rival the savannah reserves of Africa, the Udawalawe National Park is a treasure of this emerald isle.
Nourished by the Udawalawe reservoir, the park is located in the mid southern low lands, stretching over 30,000 hectares. It is most popular for elephant sightings as the verdure shelters close to 500 jumbos. The riches within the park do not end there; flocks of sambar deer, wild buffaloes, bandicoots, foxes, water-monitor lizards, crocodiles, sloth bears, the occasional leopards and a wealth of reptiles and birds can also be observed in their natural habitats.
Bird-watching and camping arrangements are available at the park and the ideal time to visit, when one can enjoy the scenic views and wildlife without being interrupted by the monsoons is between February – April.
