Uda Walawe National Park Mar 05, 2009
This is the 5th National Park in in the Southern Province of Sri Lanka. The National Park is one of the largest in Sri Lanka, it covers 306 km² and was established in 1972 to protect the catchment area of the Uda Walawe reservoir.
This National Park is popular for its large number of wild Asian Elephants. It also has several other wild animals which can be seen in the reserve. As I have seen it, it has exceptionally large swamp with different type of birds and elephants. Although the elephants were wild, but it is quite obvious that the elephants here are really used to being around human and was feed by human, as they come near the fence waiting for tourist and travelers to feed them.
There are several Jeeps and tour guilds who can show any of the visitors all the wild animals looking spots, with minimal fee.
