We travelled to Udawalawe from Hikkaduwa which was well over a 3 hour drive but was well worth it. We saw lots of wild elephants, water buffalo, monkeys, squirrels, baby crocodile and deer. The guide was excellent and seemed to know exactly where to look. Better to go early in the day as the elephants tend to lie under the trees to shelter from the sun around midday so the earlier you get there the better. Our safari lasted 4 hours so take plenty of water and something to eat with you.
