Good news for wildlife lovers. The Wildlife Conservation Department has announced this week that all camp sites and bungalows within the Uda Walawe National Park are now once again open to the public to stay. Earlier in the year, the park officials stopped issuing permits to the public to use the campsite and the parks five bungalows due to security reasons. This was only a precautionary measure and now the park is back to its former glory.
The park has three very well located camping sites. Camping within the park would be the best way to enjoy Uda Walawe to its fullest. You get to be the first to explore the park in the morning and the last to go back to the camp site, giving one all the best chances to spot some of the rare animals of Uda Walawe. Asian Elephants are easy to see in Uda Walawe and can usually be seen throughout the day. Leopard and the smaller cats like Jungle Cat & Rusty Spotted Cat can be seen during the early morning and late evenings.
