Sri Lanka National Parks holidays are a delight for nature lovers. For just a small nation, the volume of breathtaking landscapes and wildlife is staggering. From the lush forests of Yala National Park to the rolling plains of Gal Oya National Park there is a landscape to inspire every traveller. We offer holidays in three of Sri Lanka’s best national parks, and each of them is home to a treasure-trove of natural delights.
Yala National Park
The landscape of Yala National Park is almost as varied as its collection of wildlife. Yala has a huge area of forest and borders on the Indian Ocean, creating numerous natural pools and lagoons. The shifting landscape is home to leopards and crocodiles, as well as hundreds of bird species.
Udawalawe National Park
A dream for conservationists looking for an eco-friendly getaway, Udawalawe National Park was built to provide a sanctuary for animals affected by the construction of the Udawalawe Reservoir. Its majestic landscape is home to a massive population of regal elephants.
Gal Oya National Park
Centred around the stunning Senanayake Samudra lake, this is the perfect place for an animal-spotting safari. Gal Oya National Park is home to 32 species of mammal including leopard, macaque, sloth bear, water buffalo and deer.
From the plush comfort of a private chalet to a one-of-a-kind luxury tented camp, all of our accommodation options have in one thing in common – they are the perfect starting point for an unforgettable safari. Our Travel Specialists can tailor-make every aspect of your Sri Lanka National Parks holiday. Call today to start planning your next holiday in Sri Lanka.
