Bundalla National Park

A tropical haven set in the heart of the Indian Ocean, the miracle of Sri Lanka is home to over ten national parks. These national parks are given this designation due to the diverse and rare plant life, animal life or bird life that frequents its forests. When in Sri Lanka, three main sanctuaries are revered: Yala, Sinharaja and Wasgamuwa, and these three areas are frequented by both locals and tourists alike. Whether you are an animal lover, a photographer or even a travel writer, these natural sanctuaries take up a special place in Sri Lankan tourism. Its beauty and diversity, unparalleled in the region, are also home to a series of national parks. Though sometimes overlooked, the Bundalla National Park is one such icon of national pride that is located close to Yala, just off Hambantota.

Home to widespread populations of elephants, turtles, crocodiles and even the occasional leopard, tourists visiting Sri Lanka would be remiss if they avoid venturing into the greenery of the Bundalla National Park. The natural beauty alone merits a visit for the park is located adjacent to a lagoon and the azure waters are beautifully complemented by the lush green shrubbery surrounding the waterway. It is also an ideal location to watch crocodiles as they lazily cut through the clear waters or bask in the sun.

When visiting, most tourists find it beneficial to hire a tracker or a guide who is familiar with the park for they are often quite adept at drawing out wildlife for an optimum experience in the wild. A Sri Lanka beach resort in the area would also co-ordinate the hiring of such a guide as well as the transport necessary to traverse across the terrain of the site. The Bundalla National Park is also an ideal excursion for those staying at Tangalle hotels as they would have the opportunity to experience the abundant wildlife in the country while also enjoying their beach vacation. Guests who choose to stay at Ranna 212, a safari hotel located down south, will also have the opportunity of visiting bird sanctuaries as well as the Udawalawe National Park thereby adding value to their vacation in the pearl of the Indian Ocean.
