Overview
This half-day safari will give you the chance of visiting Udawalawe National Park which is one of the best places in Sri Lanka to see wild elephants. An Asian elephant herd, no less than 250, is permanently residing at Udawalawe national park. The park is capable of sustaining large numbers of elephants because of its abundant water sources. Hundreds of elephants annually migrate to the park from nearby protected areas as well. Udawalawe national park was created for elephants displaced by the construction of the adjoining Udawalawe reservoir. Furthermore, Udawalawe is an important bird area with a wide range such as aquatic, birds of prey, and land birds in abundance. If you like to explore Sri Lankan birdlife, morning safari experiences are known to include rare bird sightings frequently.
