Full description

Your experience begins as you are picked up in the morning or afternoon from your hotel in Tangalle. From there, relax on the 2-hour drive to the Udawalawa National Park. Along the way, learn how the park was created in the 1970s to provide a sanctuary for wild animals displaced by the construction of the Udawalawe Reservoir on the Walawe River. Upon arrival to the park, go for a safari drive by Jeep and look for the thriving elephant population in its natural habitat. You can also search for other indigenous wildlife, such as buffalo, wild boar, sambhur, and hare. Now the third-most-visited park in Sri Lanka, Udawalawe is also an important nature reserve for 50 species of butterflies and many species of birds. At the conclusion of your big day out, you'll journey back to Tangalle to be dropped off back to your accommodation.
