Overview
 A Sri Lankan vacation is just not the same without a safari into one of its beautiful national parks which are situated all over the island. Kaudalla National Park is the perfect national park to go to. Recently opened to the public again it is now home to 250 wild elephants which are seen all over the park. It is not possible to not spot a jumbo while driving through its terrains. It is possible to get into close proximity with these wonderful majestic creatures. In addition it is also an important bird area so bird lovers can enjoy all the rare species of birds that visit the ancient Kaudalla Tank. The tank is the best place to see fish, reptiles such as crocodiles as well as elephants that come to bathe and feed around the tank.

In addition to the elephants, driving around the muddy roads you can also come across other forms of wild life that are familiar in Sri Lankan jungles. Watch the Sambar Deer and Axis Deer graze or see Wild Boar burrowing. If you are really lucky you can see the beautiful leopard or the lazy sloth bear. Another important animal is the Gray Slender Loris where Kaudalla National Park was the first place it was spotted in. Kaudalla National Park is also the only park to have an albino deer.

The ancient Kaudalla Tank is one location that is not to be missed on the jungle rounds. For the avid wild life photographer this place is a haven. Large water birds like the Spot – billed Pelican visit the tank for its feeding. There are also different types of fresh water fish that inhibit the tank. Freshwater turtles such as the Indian Flap Shelled Turtle and the Indian Black Turtle are the reptiles that you can see. In addition watch the crocodiles slink in the water. Sri Lanka Tourism is boosting after the conflict and among the many things to see Wildlife in Sri Lanka ranges as one of the top things to do.
