Loved the safari it was incredible. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and spotted everything from a tourtourise to crocodiles to over 15 elephants including 3 babies. One thing to note.. The website does not mention anything about getting there at a certain time. We arrived 25 minutes before and where rushed through as we where late without realising.

Would highly recommend. Thilini organised us transport + safari with a days notice from Hikkaduwa to Udalawalawe. Safari was awesome, we saw 30+ elephants, peacocks, alligators (or crocodiles), variety of birds, water buffalos and a lot more. Great service for a good price. Highly recommended.

This was my first safari and we had a fantastic time, it was an early start but so much fun. We managed to get to see a baby elephant which was amazing, and so good to watch as the older elephants protected it from us, and I was impressed that the drivers gave the animals their space. We got to see crocs, toucans and wildebeests. The birds were so colourful as well, and there were so many peacocks as well.

We stayed the night before at the Centauria Wild to take the 6am safari. Our jeep was organised by our driver and we were picked up just before 6. There were about 50 jeeps waiting by the gate at the national park waiting for the park to open.. It was a long drive till we spotted the 1st elephant. What a beautiful mammal. We drove around to the lake side where you can see some buffaloes and birds.. We managed to see a crocodiles head.. You get to see elephants, buffaloes, different birds and if you are lucky a crocodile.. Beautiful nature.. Beautiful tour.. The best part we saw the whole elephant family, new born, baby elephant, the mother and a mother-to-be
