Udawalawa Elephant Safari

Departure Date



1 Day



Maximum Seats


Udawalawa National Park was designated as a national park to provide a haven for wild animals that were initially displaced by the construction of the Udawalawa Reservoir. Encompassing an area of 30,821 hectares, you’ll be able to spot wild Sri Lankan elephants, dozens of water birds and other animals that thrive here. The park is one of the more popular reserves on the island. The Udawalawa Elephant Transfer Home is located within the park as well. Established in 1995, it’s home to over 65 orphaned elephants, where they are taken care of until they’re old enough to be released back into the wild. The months between May to September are said to be the best time to spot animals, as most of them leave the thick jungles in search of water.
