UDA WALAWE NATIONAL PARK
With herds of elephants, wild buffalo, sambar deer and leopards, Uda Walawe National Park is the Sri Lankan national park that best rivals the savannah reserves of Africa.
The Uda Walawe Reservoir, is a lightly vegetated park, spanning over 300 sq-km. This sparce terrain makes game-watching easy, allowing visitors to observe animal behaviours in thier natural surrounding.
On a usual visit it is possible to see whole herds of adults and young elephants feeding, bathing and playing in the water. Around 400 elephants are known to be living in the area. In addition to this main attraction, the park is home to many crocodiles, water buffalo, water monitor lizards, sambar deer, monkeys and the occasional leopard, as well as being an exciting location for bird enthusiasts.
