Where to stay in Uda Walawe National Park

Most visitors to Uda Walawe National Park opt to stay in the village of the same name. Here, choose from larger resorts with outdoor pools and onsite fine-dining restaurants, or humbler options, including rustic lodges and small guesthouses. In the park itself, a couple of campgrounds offer diverse outdoor adventuring experiences, with some fairly rudimentary pitches, as well as grander tents and cabins with lots of room and additional facilities.
