Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
Park Gate of Kaudulla National Park

Book a morning or afternoon safari and meet your driver-guide at the Kaudulla entrance. Alternatively, if your accommodation lies within a 3-mile (5-kilometer) radius of the entrance, enjoy a pickup and transfer to the gate.

Then, head inside (own expense), board your private 4x4, and set off along the unmade tracks. Consisting of forest scrub, grasslands and reservoirs, Kaudalla draws many species and is ranked an Important Bird and Biodiversity Area by BirdLife International.


Look for wildlife including the elusive slender loris, sloth bear, and spotted chevrotain (deer), together with wild boar, sambar deer, and axis deer, including rare albino axis  — the latter thought to frequent the park following the recent discovery of an orphaned calf here.

Elephants are regular visitors, especially during evenings and September and October when they come here for water, and the reservoir waters attract fish, reptiles, and up to 150 bird species. Observe the watersides and perhaps see Indian black and flap-shelled turtles, Mozambique tilapia fish, and birds like spot-billed pelicans and lesser adjutants.

Your safari ends at the gate or with a drop-off at hotels within the 3-mile (5-kilometer) radius.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Kaudulla National Park
The safari will take you on a short game drive through the wilds of Kaudulla. The park is known for its elephant sightings, especially towards the end of the dry season in September. The Kaudulla tank hosts a number of birds and other wildlife, being the main source of freshwater in the surrounding area. You will be travelling in a rough terrain (4WD) game vehicle. Established in 2002, the Kaudulla National Park forms the Kaudulla-Minneriya Jungle corridor near Trincomalee. It spreads over 6900 hectares of space and includes many dry evergreen forests, abandoned cultivation lands, and grassland zones. The ecosystems of the park mainly revolve around the Kaudulla Tank, one of the ancient water tanks built by King Mahasena during the 3rd century AD. Now the park has some 24 species of mammals, 25 species of reptiles, 26 species of fish, and over 160 species of birds inhabiting the sanctuary, in addition to other insects and living beings.
