Uda Walawe National Park

One of the primary nature reserves in the country, Uda Walawe National Park provides vital habitat for a herd of Sri Lankan elephants. Centering around a major reservoir, the park has a number of marshes, grasslands, and forests; much of the vegetation remains fairly thin on the ground, making the wildlife easier to spot. Guided 4x4 tours of Uda Walawe National Park are a popular way to spot the elephants, sambar deer, and water buffalos, as well as a wealth of water birds, such as storks, pelicans, and spoonbills.

Where to stay in Uda Walawe National Park

Most visitors to Uda Walawe National Park opt to stay in the village of the same name. Here, choose from larger resorts with outdoor pools and onsite fine-dining restaurants, or humbler options, including rustic lodges and small guesthouses. In the park itself, a couple of campgrounds offer diverse outdoor adventuring experiences, with some fairly rudimentary pitches, as well as grander tents and cabins with lots of room and additional facilities.
