Privet One Day Udawalawe National Park Elephant Safari

2 reviews
Basing out of Colombo needn’t mean missing out on Sri Lanka’s wildlife delights. On this private door-to-door tour, experience a 4WD elephant safari in Uduwalawe National Park with its photogenic reservoir and mountain range. On your way back, stop in Ratnapura to see the historic temple of Maha Saman Devalaya and explore the gem museum. Please note: Tour excludes national park entrance fees and guide fees.

This has been built to commemorate Independence obtained in1948. This is not the place where it was declared but a place where Sri Lankan architecture is used. A place not to be missed if you are in Colombo. Good for a morning walk and some great photos. Nearby you would find Sri Lanka Broadcasting corporation and also the National TV station. This area is also near to many overseas missions like Australian High commission, Canadian High commission and also the British High commission.

We did a quick stop here on our city tour. There is a lot of history at the Independence Square and also a great opportunity for photos. You don't have to spend too long here.

The place is a rectangle shape building mostly resting on many pillers and nothing in the middle. Outside it is a statue of the first president of the country Mr Stephen Senanayake. There is no entry fee. It is worth taking a pic.
