Udawalawe National Park Safari from Ella, Mirissa

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.

Description

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 inter-related geographical features.

I can highly recommend the Ella day tour with 4rest Lanka Tours! Dilan safely guided me through Ella Rock, Little Adam's Peak and Nine Arch Bridge. He responded promptly to my emails, is very reliable and communicative. He was well prepared for the trip and told some interesting historical facts and details on the visited placed as well. We were not rushing, but gave me time to hike at my own pace. It was really a lovely day!

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!

I spent a wonderful day hiking in Horton Plains with Dilan. He is the most kind guide and host you can get. Dilan has also a good knowledge of Sri Lankan history and nature. Highly recommended.

I booked the x6 waterfalls and had Dilan txt me the night before to confirm everything. He even added in a trip to lipton tea and a buddha statue which was not on the itenerary to which I couldnt say no to. He picked me up on his motorbike as it was faster and easier to travel to all the spots and I agreed as Ive done it before around Asia ans i enjoy the fresh breeze. Went to the newly built buddha statue on Ellas hill top with awsome biews of the city then went to Lipton tea. It was amazing views EVERYWHERE we rode. Then came all the waterfalls which I captured many awsome pics. Dilun was awsome and kind and reliable. Highly reccomend to fellow travellers, he wont dissapoint. 🤙🙌

We thoroughly enjoyed an almost day-long adventure tour with our very knowledgeable guide Dilan (Ella Rock, Adam’s Peak, and 9 Arch Bridge). He picked us up from our homestay for an early start to Ella Rock. We walked along the tracks for a bit, before starting an invigorating ascent towards the Rock. Dilan knew the trails very well and expertly (and safely) guided us to the top while giving us insight into some of the environmental issues as well while adding some personal stories to the mix. We had to catch a late breakfast at our homestay after our hike, and Dilan was accommodating and even found us a shortcut to our homestay so we could make it on time. After breakfast, we headed to the 9 Arch bridge, where we were able to watch the train from a great vantage point. Dilan gave us some interesting history of the bridge and the man behind the arch design. After a quick break, we continued on to Adam’s peak for another hike (a little less strenuous than Ella rock). At the end, we were quite pleasantly tired from the days activities, and we stopped for a late lunch before the end our the tour. Dilan also gave us some tips on other interesting places to visit and what to look for. Thanks Dilan!
