  • Awesome place for real wild life adventure. Need a 4x4 and a trained guide. Elephants there are not as friendly as Yala.
  • It's a protected place. You can go there with a permit. There are many animals, including elephants. You can see technique of the Sinhala ancient people. I like this place and you will also like it.
  • Mahaoya - Aralaganwila road runs through the Maduru Oya National park. It is like you are travelling in some other country.You can see a bunch of Elephants with small ones, at any time. Not only elephants, there are lot more other animals as well. There are many eye catching views on the way. Henanigala temple also can be visited. If you have proper authorisation, you can visit the Maduru Oya dam. At least once in your lifetime , you should travel by this road.
  • Maduru Oya National Park is a national park of Sri Lanka, established under the Mahaweli development project. A community of Vedda people, the indigenous ethnic group of Sri Lanka lives within the park boundary in Henanigala. Providing a home to wildlife, especially for elephants. You can see big Asian elephant in the park
  • Stayed 2 nights (3 days) inside park bungalow called Enderuetamulla. Its DWC bungalow and can book for anyone via department of wildlife site. It was great experience. Nice sceneries.. one of the best game reserve in SL. All sort of animals are there, but u can easily see elephants only. Even in December very less crowd, just 4-5 jeeps inside the park.. where same days heard that heavy traffic in Yala. Bungalow is very good, but it has very basic facilities. Good caretakers and very helpful. Dam, its diffrent experience, must go and see the Maduru oya Dam sorrounded by elephants in evening...
