As nature and animal lovers, we search for appealing wildlife destinations. So let me introduce you to one of the most popular national parks in Sri Lanka – Udawalawe National Park. The park is only a few hours drive from the capital city of Colombo. It’s a mixture of grasslands, forest, river and wild animals. You will find wild elephants roaming around here. If you’re lucky, you will see a large herd of elephants. While elephants are the main attraction, you can also see wild peacocks, eagles, kingfishers, deer, wild buffalo and occasional leopard. There is a river when you go deep in to the jungle where you can take a dip to wind down. You must go inside with a tour guide, and it’s for your own safety. Here are some pictures of my visit to the amazing Udawalawe National Park.
