The Udawalawe National park is the best place to see wild elephant roaming around in a natural habitat, not to mention Udawalawe National park is the most beautiful national park in Sri Lanka because of the soaring highlands and its majestic Udawalawwe reservoir surrounded by marshes, greenish grasslands and forests, that makes a habitat not only for wild elephants but birds and many other animals including Reptiles and Mamals. Since Udawalawe is a small park, precisely; covering 308 square km / 119 square miles, half-day safari is adequate, unless you are a hardcore animal lover, particularly elephants. Apart from, breathtakingly beautiful landscape, you will definitely spot Wild elephant in their natural habitat, and many other animals, if you saw Lepords you can consider yourself lucky. Park is close to Elephant transit home at Udawalawe, therefor you can visit the Elephant transit home as well. Most importantly park is less crowded, tourist numbers remain low throughout the year.
