Kaudulla National Park Safari

Kaudulla National Park is a lesser-known part of Sri Lanka's elephant corridor, and a less-crowded alternative to Yala or Minneriya. Here you can spot wildlife year-round, from 200+ elephants to leopards and sloth bears, and evening safaris are best for wildlife spotting. Come in July to Oct for the largest gathering of Asian elephants in the world.
