Imagine walking into a garden filled with a myriad of bird species, all in various colours, shapes and sizes. Imagine going on a bird watching safari to the Bundala National Park where you are sure to have one amazing experience. Stay at one of theTangalle hotels such as Ranna212 Tangalle from where one could call at this birding paradise.
Over 100 species of water birds reside at the park and therefore nature lovers will be provided with plenty of opportunity to these birds on camera. A majority of the species are migrant birds and these include Lesser Whistling Duck, Black-headed Ibis, Painted Stork and the Little Cormorant. The numerous lagoons that scatter the park only help bird watchers as they aim to get close as possible to these birds. While engaged in bird watching you might also encounter the odd elephant, wild boar and even golden jackal. Overall some of the rarest birds call Bundala home and this is why its features as a popular stopover for both locals and foreign nationals.
