Overview

Kaudulla National Park is the best place for a true Sri Lankan safari. It is home to 250 wild elephants and it they can be spotted in abundance. This national park is exceptional for viewing elephants, leopards, deer and even the sloth bear. This park has become famous for being able to get up close and personal with elephants. It is located around the very old Kaudulla Tank and just 6 km from the Habarana Trincomalee Road.

 In addition to elephants and other mammals it is also an important bird area so bird lovers can enjoy all the rare species of birds that visit the Kaudalla Tank. The tank is the best place to see fish, reptiles such as crocodiles as well as elephants that come to bathe and feed around the tank.

You can also take a drive around the muddy roads and come across other forms of wild life that are familiar in Sri Lankan jungles. Watch the Sambar Deer and Axis Deer graze or see Wild Boar burrowing. If luck permits you can see the graceful leopard or the lazy sloth bear. Another important animal is the Gray Slender Loris where Kaudalla National Park was the first place it was spotted in. Kaudalla National Park is also the only park to have an albino deer.

The ancient Kaudalla Tank is one spot that is not to be missed when driving through the jungle. For the wild life photographer this place is paradise. Large water birds like the Spot – billed Pelican visit the tank for its feeding. There are also different types of fresh water fish that inhibit the tank. Freshwater turtles such as the Indian Flap Shelled Turtle and the Indian Black Turtle are the reptiles that you can see

The area around is quiet and rustic as it is a wild life protected location. There is not much else to see and do and the only entertainment found will be in the hotel. If you are looking for the perfect quiet holiday filled with wild life then Kaudalla National Park is the place to visit.
