Uda Walawe National Park

(2,000+ reviews from 5 attractions)
Nature Wildlife Areas
One of the primary nature reserves in the country, Uda Walawe National Park provides vital habitat for a herd of Sri Lankan elephants. Centering around a major reservoir, the park has a number of marshes, grasslands, and forests; much of the vegetation remains fairly thin on the ground, making the wildlife easier to spot. Guided 4x4 tours of Uda Walawe National Park are a popular way to spot the elephants, sambar deer, and water buffalos, as well as a wealth of water birds, such as storks, pelicans, and spoonbills.
