About
This half-day safari will give you the chance of visiting Udawalawe National Park which is one of the best places in Sri Lanka to see wild elephants. An Asian elephant herd, no less than 250, is permanently residing at Udawalawe national park. The park is capable of sustaining large numbers of elephants because of its abundant water sources. Hundreds of elephants annually migrate to the park from nearby protected areas as well. Udawalawe national park was created for elephants displaced by the construction of the adjoining Udawalawe reservoir. Furthermore, Udawalawe is an important bird area with a wide range such as aquatic, birds of prey, and land birds in abundance. If you like to explore Sri Lankan birdlife, morning safari experiences are known to include rare bird sightings frequently.

Udawalawe national park was so much more then we would’ve expected. We saw many elephants up close, jungle cats, crocodiles, golden jackal, buffalows in mud, monkeys and much more. Our safari guide had an intuition to locate animals. We were with two small children and our guide did everything to make them happy. Thank you very much for the awesome time.

We went on a safari at Udawalawe national park with few of my friends. I booked it with Overa tours as a recommendation of my brother.

We were luck to see more than 30 elephants there. Also we spotted baby elephants too. Our jeep driver took us near to them and it was so exciting... Also we saw many bird species like peacocks plus water buffaloes, crocodiles, deers so and so. If you wanna see elephants, don't miss Udawalawe 🐘

Excellent service. Highly recommended!!!!

Udawalawe safari is one of the finest national parks to see elephants and wildlife in sri lanka. Arrive at 0900 to park and spent amazing 4 hours safari with our guide. Our guide was very informative and helpful to spot some wildlife and many elephants. Plus point of this safari is all the animals are wild animals including elephants. They were not chained and they live freely. Deers water buffalo and birds lizards were highlights of the safari. I advise you all the start early to spot some magnificent creatures.

We went early from our hotel in galle to udawalawe national park which i would highly recommend. We were picked up by airconditioned vehicle and safari was by a jeep. Thank to our jeep driver we saw elephants, buffalos, golden jackal, crocodile and more birds. The highlight of our safari was we saw a mom elephant feeding its baby elephant which was beautiful. Our driver knew best places to see the wildlife. Well organized tour. Amazing experience to see plenty of wildlife.

We booked a half day safari to Udawalawe. This park is mainly to see elephants. The highlight of our tour is we saw an elephant and a baby so close to our jeep. It was really exciting. We paid over 200.00 USD from Galle hotel. There were not many jeeps so we were able to get isolated to some places which helps us to see many animals. Unspoiled beautiful place.

We choose overa tours after reading several good reviews. Udawalawe national park itself is an amazing place with lagoons, bushes and jungle along with lots of animals. We saw so countless birds, crocodiles, wild boar, spotted deer, monitor lizards, golden jackal and many elephants. We saw a 2 month old baby elephant as well. Very worth our time and money. We really enjoyed.
