Hurulu Eco Park, Habarana

(3.8/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Famous for sheltering elephants and evergreen forests, Hurulu Eco Park enjoys protection as a designated biosphere reserve. Go on a jeep safari to encounter the majestic mammals up close, as well as a variety of birds and other native species. As you progress into the wild, take photographs of the remarkable scenery and absorb the serenity of the tropical environment. Refrain from panicking should you get too close to elephants--noise can upset them and lead to unnecessary clashes. Put Hurulu Eco Park into our Habarana tourist route planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Habarana.

  • It's a elephant heaven, it's used as a temporary stay while moving from Kaudulla National Park to Minneriya, 
  • This is a mad made park but can see elephants most of the time of year. We went there 2-3 times & every time we visited able to see them. Not a quite adventure safari when you compare with other parks...  more »
  • Excellent Safari with local guy. Tour lasted about 3.5 hours. Hundreds of Elephants came out of jungle heading for grass and water,

  • You can watch natural habitat of elephants in this small park. No need to wait hours to see them. It will only take 2 hour to make a round on whole park. You can rent a 4WD from entrance of the park since the road conditions only suitable to 4WD off road vehicles within the park. Skilled drivers will take you on a adventures trip across the park. Definitely you will be able to see at least 10+ elephants There is a camping hut in middle of the park as well.
  • You can see only elephants and some kind of birds. On weekends really busy with hundreds of jeeps.which annoying to travel.
  • long walking distance.....wear a comfortable shoes....
  • A Best natural place
