Asian elephants, hundreds of birds and many other species await you at Kaudulla National Park. Discover its wildlife with the photographic safari from Kandy.
Kaudulla National Park Safari
We'll pick you up from your hotel in Kandy at 11 am. After a minibus journey lasting two hours and a half, we'll arrive at Kaudulla National Park, one of Sri Lanka's natural gems.
At the entrance, we'll get on a jeep to start the Kaudulla safari. During the three hour drive, we'll discover the reserve's important ecological value. It's a large environmental space named an IBA (Important Bird and Biodiversity Area), containing 160 species of birds, 24 species of mammals, 25 species of reptiles and 26 species of fish. Within this impressive variety of animals, you'll come across birds such as cranes, peacocks and pelicans, becoming an expert at identifying the diverse types of birds!
We'll stop at a picnic area, so don't forget to pack lunch! In the afternoon, the safari will continue through areas of Kaudulla with a high number of Asian elephants. Although the species is in danger of extinction, Sri Lanka is one of few countries to preserve a significant herd of this mammal.
During the safari around Kaudulla, we'll try to visit other animals such as buffalos and Ceylon deer. The park hosts a large colony of Asian reptiles, many of which are native species to Sri Lanka and some areas of India.
We'll finish the safari at the park entrance. Here we'll take the minibus back to your hotel in Kandy, arriving at 8:30 pm.
