We decided spontaniously to go to Udawalawe. We booked this accommondation because it was mentioned at our travel guide book (S. Loose) . It is even better. Prices and service are still very good. The room is clean and has A/C. We booked the 4 hours morning safari with Samantha the owner. The tour starts early, 5:30 a.m. but do it! See Review of Udawalawe national park. After the tour we had a big breakfast before we hunted further. WLAN is running very well. If you stay there given Samantha my greetings.

The couple who runs the lodge is really friendly and helpful. They prepare a huge and delicious dinner and breakfast for a good price and offer a fascinating safari in uda walawe national park. The location of the lodge is perfect, as it's just next to the lake where you can take a swim. The rooms are clean and you can choose between rooms with a/c or without.

It was the ideal place for us to relax and spend a great time in front of a really splendid lake view. Hospitality of host Samantha & family was admirable. Two rooms we booked were spacious and comprised all we need like clean & large beds, AC & hot water. Staff was very efficient and all the foods were delicious. Had a great time swimming & fishing in the lake. Also can have a boat ride there with life jackets too. Must say that all the things are really affordable and highly recommended for every sort of trips.

With a location comfortably living up to its name, SLVGH has great rooms, great hosts, serves great food and offers great safaris. You can swim and fish in the lake and if you get a chance, take the bikes and follow the river in either direction, or just chug around the lanes. Good value and very highly recommended.

Hostel was clean and located on the lake. Food was amazing and freshly prepared. Perfect for 1 nights stay. Safari organised by the Lodge was good and affordable. TIP: Driver could drive slower and improve knowledge of the wildlife. Impressive that the Lodge advised us to go very early so we were first ones into the park, this proved to be worthwhile

Other Things to Know

Packing list for the trip
Insect Repellent
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!
