Udawalawe National Park Safari from Galle, Habaraduwa, Hikkaduwa, Mirissa, Ella

(1 customer review)

Sri Lanka is blessed with various national parks and wildlife sanctuaries where one can watch the varied species of animals and birds, along with lush greenery and plenty of flora and fauna and add charm to your wildlife tours, Sri Lanka. Udawalawe national park is one of the best destinations to see wild elephants. Today, around 250 herds of Sri Lankan elephants dominate the place like their home. Relatively hard to see in its open habitat, these elephants freely roam the vicinity of the park, especially near the reservoir. A number of wild buffalos spotted deer, and giant squirrels also live peacefully inside the protected area. The park’s lack of dense vegetation in its vast landscape makes it an ideal spot to watch the wildlife go with their daily routines.


Udawalawe’s main attraction is the large herd of Sri Lankan elephants who call it home. Udawalawe is home to a few other species of mammal. Carnivores such as the rusty-spotted cat, the fishing cat, and the Sri Lankan Leopard are not unknown. During a visit, it is not unusual to see whole herds of adults and young elephants feeding or bathing and playing in the water. In addition to this main attraction, the park is home to many water buffalo, water monitors, lizards, sambar deer, monkeys, and the occasional leopard, as well as being an exciting location for bird enthusiasts. Udawalawe national park is a collection of several distinct, but interrelated geographical features. From lush forests to grasslands to man-made reservoirs, Udawalawe is among the largest national parks in Sri Lanka.

    We had the most amazing tour with Dilan last year! We booked 2 tours with him – one for an elephant safari at the Udawalawe national park, and then the next day for a waterfall hike. He was so knowledgable, and so accommodating to tailor the tours to what we were interested in seeing more of. He also surprised us with a 2nd secret, hidden waterfall and pulled out packed lunches his mother had made for us 🙂 It was a very special few days we spent with Dilan understanding more about the Sri Lankan culture and history, and the beauty of the country. We will never forget it, and we’d recommend Dilan and 4rest Lanka Tours to anyone going to Sri Lanka!
