The Udawalawe National Park was established to provide shelter for wild animals displaced due to the construction of the Udawalawe Reservoir. Udawalawe is considered a great habitat for water birds and Sri Lankan elephants. It is a popular tourist destination for both locals and foreigners. You'll visit the park's Elephant Transit Home to see these gentle giants and then tour the park in a 4x4 jeep safari.
You will have a 2-hour long safari exploring this amazing national park. Kick-off at the Elephant Transit Home, where orphaned baby elephants are cared for after rescue from the wild. The park is centered 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. Enjoy your lunch in a local restaurant in Udawalawa before you are dropped off back at your hotel in Colombo.
