Sri Lanka Attractions
Of all the National Parks in Sri Lanka, Yala National Park gives the best opportunity to witness Sri Lanka’s broad variety of wildlife.
Colorful painted stork in troops are seen perched at the shores of lagoon where the crocodiles too have chosen to doze off. Lovely fan-tailed peacocks in their resplendent blues and greens parade about amidst the woods where monkeys hang, leap and chatter.
In the bush jungle are the elephants, crossing the tracks and wandering off into the thorny scrub jungle. Star attraction of the park is the leopard.
Uda Walawe is a popular national park to see wild Elephants, consisting of tightly-knit family groups of up to four generations of related adult and sub-adult females and young.
The park is a mixture of abandoned Teak plantations, grassland, scrub jungle and riverine ‘gallery forest’ along the Walawe Ganga and Mau Ara.
