Hurulu Eco Park, Habarana

Nature / Park · Hidden Gem · Wildlife Area
Famous for sheltering elephants and evergreen forests, Hurulu Eco Park enjoys protection as a designated biosphere reserve. Go on a jeep safari to encounter the majestic mammals up close, as well as a variety of birds and other native species. As you progress into the wild, take photographs of the remarkable scenery and absorb the serenity of the tropical environment. Refrain from panicking should you get too close to elephants--noise can upset them and lead to unnecessary clashes.

  • The safari was definitely very worthwhile. Saw over 40 elephants often very close. Jeep drivers very acommodating and give you lots of time to take photos. They know where to find the elephants as they migrate from park to park so the nearby parks might be better on other days. Also saw peacocks, eagles and buffalo. This safari was a trip highlight.
  • Nice safaris offered by the locals in this park. You can mainly see wild elephants and peacocks. It’s difficult to see elephants well as the grass and vegetation is too high. However it has a small hill top to climb where you can have a 360 degree panoramic view.
