Kaudulla National Park



Kaudulla National Park
Kaudulla National Park

Established in 2002, Kaudulla is also part of the elephant corridor. Like Minneriya, it has a tank as its centerpiece, which attracts a large numbers of elephants during the dry season. The park has a varied habitat and supports wildlife that is very similar to Minneriya’s; however, rusty spotted cats are also found here. Outside the dry season, much of the park is underwater, and the elephants migrate to the surrounding jungles. The park is home to a wide variety of birds species, which include spot-billed pelicans, lesser adjutant and cormorants. Boat rides on the lake can also be arranged. When on a safari, be aware that jeeps do not get too close to the animals. It is always best to maintain a safe distance from elephants, as they may charge. more
