4.0
#2 of 17 in Parks in North Central Province
Experience one of Sri Lanka's newest national parks and wildlife reserves at Kaudulla National Park, where you can come in close contact with elephants, among other majestic creatures. Opened in 2002, the corridor park houses up to 250 elephants, as well as endangered species such as leopards, sloth bears, sambar bears, and rusty spotted cats. Go on a jeep safari to observe and learn about these animals' behavior and habitat, or opt for a catamaran ride to explore this eco-tourism attraction by water. The weather can get relentlessly hot, so carry a hat and remember to put on sunscreen.
