Udawalawe National Park

Sri Lanka Holidays - The unmistakable display of a peacock

Udawalawe National Park is famed for its healthy population of elephants; they are frequently seen in herds of up to 300, gathered mainly around the edges of the lakes.  Birdlife is also prolific, and residents include stork-billed and common kingfishers, egrets, herons, white-necked storks, black-headed ibis and painted storks.  Among the mammals likely to be seen are endemic toque monkey, Hanuman langur, spotted deer, wild pig, black-napped hare, ruddy mongoose and sambar.  Rarely seen mammals include the stripe-necked mongoose, muntjac, pangolin, giant flying squirrel, jungle cat, porcupine and nocturnal slender loris.  There are leopards in the park but they are rarely seen.
