    What to Expect
    Receive an early-morning pickup from your hotel in Galle and drive for three hours to the entrance of Udawalawe National Park. You’ll enter the park in the early morning hours to beat the crowds and to scout for animals when they’re at their most active.

    Spend the day searching for Udawalawe’s collection of elephants, crocodiles, birds, and various species of exotic plant life. You’ll take a break midday for lunch (own expense) and also have time in the afternoon for an optional visit to Udawalawe Elephant Orphanage. You’ll transfer back to Galle in the afternoon, arriving back at your hotel around 6pm.
