Udawalawa National Park
Sri Lanka

personal experience

I visited this area in December 2016.

wildlife

This national park is mainly known for it's elephant population.

With so many elephants, this gives one a chance to watch behaviours, and see a range of individuals from large males, to mothers, to young ones.

Other mammals include water buffalo

birds

There are many water holes throughout the park, and this attracts a range of birds.

Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? One of the companies I work for as a guide and lecturer is Silversea Expeditions.
