Full description
Benefit from early morning pickup at your hotel in Colombo, and then relax on the 5-hour drive to Udawalawa National Park, 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, go for a safari drive by jeep and look for the thriving elephant population in its natural habitat. 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.

Long road to reach the park from Colombo, but worth it! Seen a lot of elefants, buffalos, lizards, large variaty of birds, turtles and even a crocodile. The safari experience is not very crowded (as I heard Yala is) and there was enough time to admire the park and the animals. The driver from Colombo to the park was reallt skilled and the guide was nice, but needs to improve his english a little bit. All in all, don’t regret the money I spent, even though I paid double as solo traveler.

The guide was nice, but it did not have too many animals to see.
