Tusker Safari at Kalawewa National Park

2. Tusker Safari at Kalawewa National Park

The imposing Kala Wewa and Balalu Wewa tanks, built in the 5 BC by King Dhatusena, adorns the 6,000 hectare Kalawewa National Park, alongside an impressive 45-foot Avukana Buddha statue. But the centerpieces of the park are the star residents of the sanctuary: the tusker elephants. Of the male elephant population, only about seven percent are tuskers. Kalawewa boasts of a high concentration of tuskers, a privilege to behold. In addition to the tuskers, large flocks of open-billed storks are a common sight. The park has a beautiful landscape lined with massive signature Kumbuk trees. Your accompanying guide will give you additional information about the tuskers. You will also catch sight of numerous birds and other animals which dwell in the sanctuary. Your guide will share interesting facts about the flora and fauna of the Kalawewa National Park. If you arrive during the monsoon period (October-November) the filled up tanks will attract gatherings of animals and birds alike, amidst the kumbuk trees and vegetation.
