Have you ever thought about visiting elephants in their natural habitat? If yes, then you might wanna consider Sri Lanka as your next destination. The island is not that big, but there are several places where world elephants roam. Udawalawe national park is one of them.bI just went to Udawalawe national park the other day. This was my third visit to the park within the past 5 years. The park covers almost 30 000 hectares, so you have a lot of space there.

It’s not only elephants that you see.

The wild elephants are the main attraction in Udawalawe national park. But you have many other animals in the park. When I was there last week, we did not just see wild elephants. We also saw animals such as crocodiles, water buffalo, deer, monitor lizards, monkeys, peacocks, kingfisher birds, eagles. Just to mention a few of the animals we saw in the wild. And we got really close to come of the animals. One elephant was less than a meter from the jeep.

If you want to visit, then you have to pay both an entrance fee and a car with an animal tracker to take you around. The price of this varies. It mostly depends on how many people you are. If you are just one or two people, then it will cost more. The reason is that the vehicles that takes you around the national park holds up to 6 people. If you are a couple, then the price is likely to be 55$ to 65$ per person. And 40$ to 45$ if you are a group of at least 6 people. This will include a 4-5 hour tour inside the national park. And it’s with a driver who knows how to spot the different animals. Sure enough, elephants are easy to spot for anyone. But when it comes to spotting birds, then these guys are fantastic. And I found it very interesting to see how many colourful birds live there in the wild.

  1. rencontre nhl 2013 Sri Lanka is a beautiful destination to vacation, explore, and become one with the incredible sights that nature has to offer. I have been looking to plan a trip for my family that goes beyond the ordinary sandy beach scenario, giving us a real opportunity to learn and share it with others! I think we just might ditch our Hyundai car this year, and take a journey far beyond the continental U.S.! Your pictures make me want to look into booking a trip ASAP!
