The unique advantages of 
Sri Lanka Big Game Safari 
Wilpattu National Park

Big Game Safaris Wilpattu National Park is visited by elephants and has a very rich birdlife. It’s located closer to the southern boundary of Wilpattu National Park, adjoining a lake, and is surrounded by a bush forest. Enjoy alfresco meals near the lake, surrounded by the serenity of nature. The distance between the entrance of the Park and the campsite is a mere 7km, and takes only 5 to 10 minutes to get there. As this campsite is located just bordering a lake closer to the Park’s boundary, it feels more like living inside the park. There is plenty of wildlife within the campsite wandering across from the Wilpattu National Park itself.

Game Drives with Big Game Safaris

We offer a unique Wilpattu National Park safari with experienced drivers and naturalists, expert in all things wild. The Wilpattu National Park safari drive is about 7km, and takes about 5 – 10 minutes in a safari jeep. You will journey past paddy fields and farmland, as this area is home to several small villages. The land has an important feature known as ‘Villus’, which is a complex of wetlands, nourishing a wide variety of animal and plant life, and is therefore vital to the wildlife of the area. 

The Wilpattu National Park contains a large population of Sri Lankan Leopards, Sri Lankan Elephants, and other attractive wildlife of Sri Lanka. If you are visiting in May / June, you might even see Sri Lankan Sloth Bears eating fruit off the top branches of the giant Palu Trees which are scattered throughout the Wilpattu National Park Sri Lanka! Those who wish to do both morning and evening safaris, have the option of going back to the camp to have an exquisite lunch and return in time for the evening safari. Alternatively, you may extend the morning safari to a full day safari. We are happy to pack you a delicious lunch in the event you wish to do so. We are also equipped to provide customised services such as a safari for children, family safari, honeymoon safari, photography safari, vacation safari etc. This can be arranged at a nominal fee.

The Location

The Big Game campsite Udawalawe National Park is set inside a flat and spacious bush forest overlooking a man-made reservoir on the eastern boundary of the Udawalawe National Park. Tents are spaciously set up to ensure a great setting and maximum enjoyment of the breath-taking sunset in the bush. Within the campsite’s private forest is a lake teeming with pelicans, storks, and lapwings, and on the borders is a stunning rock cliff – frequented by elephants – with a part aerial view of Udawalawe National Park Sri Lanka. You can even play board games or read at the Recreation Lounge & Common Area, or just spend late mornings under the open sky while dozing off on a hammock. An early morning drive to the Park entrance or an evening drive back to the campsite can be easily made into a mini safari, based on your interests. The drive can take as short a time as 20 minutes, but a slower drive – recommended to better observe your surroundings – will be anywhere between 30 to 40 minutes. Further to this, our naturalists carry red beam torches that help detect animals even in the dark, especially when entering the Park. Please refer the map below to identify the exact location of the campsite.
