Udawalawa National Park covers 308 sq km and is an important habitat for elephants and water birds. The park itself lies right on the boundary between Sri Lanka's wet and dry zones, creating a very diverse environment of marshes, plains, grasslands, and rivers. The species which inhabit the park are just as diverse as the land itself. A large herd of elephants permanently reside within the park. Many exotic cat species, such as the Sri Lankan leopard and the rusty-spotted cat, monkeys, boars, and water buffalo are just a few of the other hundreds of different species of animals you can see. For the budding bird-watching enthusiast, there are nearly 200 different species of birds that also reside within the nature reserve. With over 300 different species inhabiting the park, there is always something new and exotic to see!

Other activities which you can do here are visiting the elephant orphanage in Udawalawa, hiking, bicycling (bikes are available for rent) and fishing.
Or you can simply relax at our pool and call it a lazy day!
