Udawalawe Half Day Safari (Entrance + Lunch)
14 reviews
This half-day safari will give you the chance of visiting Udawalawe National Park which is one of the best places in Sri Lanka to see wild elephants. An Asian elephant herd, no less than 250, is permanently residing at Udawalawe national park. The park is capable of sustaining large numbers of elephants because of its abundant water sources. Hundreds of elephants annually migrate to the park from nearby protected areas as well. Udawalawe national park was created for elephants displaced by the construction of the adjoining Udawalawe reservoir. Furthermore, Udawalawe is an important bird area with a wide range such as aquatic, birds of prey, and land birds in abundance. If you like to explore Sri Lankan birdlife, morning safari experiences are known to include rare bird sightings frequently.

Superb place to enjoy the sunset. Relaxing place for a stroll. Best time to visit in the evening or morning. The hotels inside the Galle fort are a bit expensive

There are two time zones to take in the feel -early morn before sunrise or late evening around 4pm with the sun rays still gleaming on the ocean below. Of all the places in Srilanka this place has something that makes one stay transfixed ,speechless and literally stuck there

Beautiful place. Constructions of yester years still exists in addition of colonial period auto mobile on display. Must visit place either solo or family. Visited just after lock down lifted. Some shops and food outlets were closed. Yet beauty has not faded.
