Hurulu Eco Park, Habarana

(3.8/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • A place where elephants are wild and free. The crossing jungle is superb. The less touristy place.

  • Huluru is just a temporary solution for the rainy season (Autumn months), when the elephants have left Minneriya. Do not go there during any other time, Minneriya is the best place to see animals and ...  more »
  • Was expecting to see a village of elephants together, as mentioned in other reviews and the tour agent. But they were just 3-4 at a time. However we enjoyed it. Especially my daughter  more »

  • 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
