Udawalawe National Park

Found not too far from the Yala National Park this is another town in the southern part of Sri Lanka that is known for its wildlife. Udawalawe National Park is not popular for Leopards like Yala is but this place is known for the elephants. This one thing is enough to make it a bit more fun than any other national park on the island. You could always stop by at this national park on your way back to Colombo from the first one on this list. The number of elephants you will find at this National Park will simply blow your mind. During a visit to this National Park you will be able to see these Mighty creatures roam around and go about the day freely. You will be able to take a look at these elephants bathing, feeding and caring for their young. This National Park also has other kinds of animals like peacocks.


Wilpattu National Park

This National Park is definitely known for having the Leopards of Sri Lanka. People make a special stop here during the wildlife Safari in Sri Lanka just take a look at the leopards. During the civil war, the Wil[attu National Park did not get many visitors as it is located in strategic location up north. Now this hidden gem on the island has been discovered and is gaining popularity over the years. This Jungle is lush and green and you will find many large Lakes within the Sanctuary itself. Because of this you will also find crocodiles and many kinds of migratory birds in the Wilpattu National Park.


Sinharaja Forest

This forest has a lot of historical significance when it comes to Sri Lanka as it literally means The Lion King. Though you might think it is named as such because you might be able to spot lions in this forest that is not the case. You will, however, find a large rainforest that is green and pleasant to explore. Sinharaja forest is also another UNESCO World Heritage site found in Sri Lanka.
