Udawalawe National Park –
Udawalawe lies south of the central hills of the island, and it surround the man made reservoir of Udawalawe, which is part of the park. It is a mixture of abandoned teak plantation, scrub jungle & grassland. The dry season is best to watch many herds of elephant that roam the park; which is usually between May & September. Almost the entire park is covered with tall, reedy Pohon grass, which grows all year round. Udawalawe is a superb place to watch elephants. An estimated 450 elephants live here.
Sinharaja Rainforest –
Sinharaja presents the characteristic features of a tropical rain forest. The only considerable patch of rain forest in the island. The climate is equable with some rain at all seasons. Most endemic birds and plants could be seen at Sinharaja. Sinharaja Rainforest which is a UNESCO World Heritage site is the last remaining rainforest in Sri Lanka and is home to most (almost 95%) of Sri Lanka’s endemic birdlife, giant butterflies and more than 50% of Sri Lanka’s endemic mammals. A most amazing sighting at Sinharaja is the dazzling colours and shocking contrasts as the large mixed flocks of feeding birds flit through the forest.
