We decided to take the safari jeep tour through the park, to be honest the most you will see is elephants. We had a guide who decided to join us, and of course is a ‘volunteer’ so guess what doesn’t get paid so end up having to give him a Tip! He pointed out birds and lizards but to be honest I wasn’t really interested in them. You mainly see elephants and that’s about it, which if you walk down the road you can see them anyway for free.

Due to a very good recommendation reading in tripadvisor we found Lahiru and contacted him under Whats App +94762726799. Very simple, very easy. He organized our pick up in Ella and afterwards we did the Safari. To be honest, it was perfect. We have seen all animals. Lahiru is a perfect Guide. It was so much fun with him. It was just perfect and a it’s a 100% recommendation. Also Lahiru organized as well our transport to our next accommodation. All that for a more than fair price. Hans-Joachim Kraft, Germany

We had an amazing time with Deshan! He is a very good driver and the Jeep is comfortable. He is also very knowledgeable about the Udawalawa park and will make you see lots of different species. He provided binoculars, which is very useful. Deshan extended to tour by c. 30min to make sure we could see as much as possible. We definitely recommend him!

Can you arrange transportation to/from Udawalawe National Park?

Yes sure! If you're coming from any other parts of Sri Lanka (e.g. Colombo) to Udawalawe National Park for your safari, or you need to head from Udawalawe National Park to any other parts of Sri Lanka after your safari, we can provide a private car transfer. This will cost US $60 per 4-person car, per one-way transfer. Please do indicate in your booking form if you require this transfer.

What safari duration should I go for?

Udawalawe is a small national park so if you're lucky to spot all the wildlife quickly, you only need a three-four hour safari (which is the most popular option). However, you might see different wildlife and different behaviour in the early morning compared with late afternoon, so if you're a keen photographer or a huge wildlife lover, you may want to do a full-day safari to maximise your chances of seeing the wildlife!
