Udawalawe National Park is the best National Park in Sri Lanka if you want to see Elephants at close quarters. This is a very exciting day trip from Colombo and the drive is approximately four hours from Colombo. Once arrived in Udawalawe we suggest that you have lunch in a restaurant recommended by our driver prior to starting off the Safari game drive. We will organize the jeeps and tickets on your behalf. Usually, the safari will take 3 to 4 hours and the scheduled exit from the park is approximately 6 pm which is the time we start the return ward journey to Colombo. A visit to Udawalawe Elephant Transit home before the game drive is a good idea where you would be able to see the feeding of Baby Elephants. This is can be only visited only during feeding times, so it is advisable that you visit this place before lunch.

Elephant Transit Home (ETH)
Twenty minutes' drive away from the Uda Walawe National Park is the ‘Elephant Transit Home’, associated with the Born Free Foundation (UK). Here, orphaned or sick elephants are fed and cared for until they are strong enough to be returned to the wild.

Udawalawe Dam
The two opposing facets of the dam parades two disparate picturesque views – a lush, alluring woodland and an inviting, charming natural cistern of water. The woodland showcases the elegance and exquisiteness of the forests of the southern region of Sri Lanka while the water body towards the Northern side of the dam serves as a local area of relaxation. The Udawalawe Dam also paves the way for one of the power plants of the country, the Udawalawe Hydroelectric Power Plant, which generates 6 MW of power.
