Full description
Start the day with a convenient pickup at your hotel and head for the Udawalawe National Park. Situated on the boundary of Sabaragamuwa and Uva Provinces, this will be around a 2-hour drive from Ella. The national park was created to provide a sanctuary for wild animals, particularly those displaced by the construction of the Udawalawe Reservoir on the Walawe River.

After arriving at the park, get on board a private jeep to begin the safari with your guide. Get you up close to the amazing attractions at the national park, including elephants, spotted deer, monitor lizards, and sambar deer. Also found are wild boar, the common langur, jackal, toddy cat, and the endemic Toque macaque monkeys.

The Udawalawe National Park safari is ideal for all elephant and animal lovers. The wildlife has great diversity and many spectacular animals can be seen while on the safari tour: The Sri Lankan leopard has even been know to roam here.

I chose this program because I saw in the advertisement, that there are hundreds of elephants in this national parc. Unfortunately the weather was too rainy, lets say stormy on that day and because of this reason I could not see so many elephants. This program was scheduled in the afternoon and how I' ve just mentioned before, it was raining. But in the morning was sunny, so why I was disappointed, that why the agency did not organize this trip in the morning, instead of the afternoon. I know, you can never count with the weather, but if they check the weather forecast before, they could have seen that in the morning was sunny and in the afternoon was between 80 to 100 % chance to rain ... I was the only person on this tour, and I was available in the morning too, so I don't understand why the agency did not recommend to me this tour in the morning.
