Udawalawe National Park

Sri Lanka - Sri Lankan Wildlife

Renowned for rivalling East Africa’s national parks, Uda Walawe features open parkland, making it the ideal location for viewing vast herds of elephants and leopards, wild buffalo, and Sambor deer.

As well as being renowned for its wildlife Uda Walawe is probably Sri Lanka’s most scenic national park, with the surrounding hills of Horton plains forming the most picturesque backdrop. As well as exploring the national park, another worthwhile visit in the area is the Elephant Transit home, where injured and orphaned elephants are cared for. Although it is impossible to get up close and personal with the elephants, visitors can witness feeding time four times a day.
