Udawalawe National Park

This Park was originally created for the purpose of being a sanctuary for wild animals that lost their home due to the construction of the Uda Walawe Reservoir on the Walawa River. It was designated as a National Park in 1972 with 31,000 hectares of landscape and today it homes several species of plants, animals and birds. Not only is it a popular attraction for tourists, but it is also widely visited by the locals.
