Udawalawa Safari, Uda Walawe National Park

4.2
#35 of 287 in Wildlife in Sri Lanka
At Udawalawa Safari, see crocodiles lazing in the muddy river, water buffalos wandering around, flashy peacocks, and the stars of the park--elephants. About 400 Asian Elephants inhabit this swamp-like park, and you can catch glimpses of the majestic beast roaming around in herds or enjoying a bath. Jump on the cool safari vehicle and enjoy the untouched nature, as your guide takes you around all the park's most important points. Don’t be surprised if some of the friendly elephants come right up close to say hello. Ticket proceeds go to feeding orphaned baby elephants.

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.
