#44 of 242 in Parks 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.

  • From our hotel in Koggala Beach we drove 3 hours by bus, which was very interesting. In part the road was completely full with water buffalo, so it took a time until we could continue and you can get pretty much by Sri Lanka to see. When we arrived, it was first in an orphanage look at feeding in the morning and then with the Jeep next to the National Park. It is relatively high and the wind is very pleasant at 32 to 35 degrees. A roof over it, although is still you should lubricate the sunscreen and to remember. The National Park and the landscapes that are beautiful, witnessed many elephants in their natural environment and that part really close. To do this, we have seen even a crocodile, many peacocks and other birds. What something is annoying, really drive Jeep to jeep through-> almost mass tourism and if elephants can be seen standing surrounded by 8 or 9 jeeps on the road. Nevertheless, I can recommend it to any Sri Lanka traveler only :)!
