Udawalawe National Park in south Sri Lanka is considered to be the Sri Lankan national park that best rivals the savannah reserves of Africa.
The National Park was established in June 1972 as a sanctuary for wild animals displaced by the construction of the Udawalawe Reservoir on the Walawe River.
It covers an area of 308 square kilometres (119 square miles) and is Sri Lanka’s 3rd largest national park (after Yala and Wilpattu). It is mainly popular for its photogenic elephants.
"For someone that loves taking photographs of animals, I was able to get some best shots. They are so natural and doesn’t feel bothered by tourists. The animals do like their home, and it does feel like an animal sanctuary.
The tour is Private Tours, means there is no other participant, just only you and your companion.
