Udawalawe National Park Day Tour

Udawalawe Safari Tours From Ahungalla,Udawalawe Jeep safari Tours and Udawalawe Half Day Safari Tours.

If there's one word that defines Sri Lanka, it's ‘wild'. And as home to some 500 elephants, Udawalawe National Park is considered the best park to spot them in the country. You'll visit the park's Elephant Transit Home to see these gentle giants being fed and then tour the park in a 4x4 safari.

Kick off at the Elephant Transit Home, where orphaned baby elephants are cared for after rescue from the wild. You'll arrive at feeding time so you can watch the little ones bottle-feed from a viewing platform just metres away. The park is centred on a huge reservoir. This means it's a great place for spotting elephants, plus the lack of vegetation makes it perfect for other animal-watching, too.

On the safari, you can expect to see buffalo, monkeys, deer and crocodiles. And, if you're lucky, there's also the elusive Sri Lankan leopard to be spotted.

Places you will visit

Udawalawe National Park

This Park was originally created for the purpose of being a sanctuary for wild animals that lost their home due to the construction of the Uda Walawe Reservoir on the Walawa River. It was designated as a National Park in 1972 with 31,000 hectares of landscape and today it homes several species of plants, animals and birds. Not only is it a popular attraction for tourists, but it is also widely visited by the locals.

Visit Elephant Transit Home

The Transit Home is a lively place. Feeding the calves with milk every three hours is a recurring job throughout the 365 days of the year. The concept of this establishment was to look after the orphaned elephant calves until they could look after themselves when released back to the wild.
