Embilipitiya - ඇඹිලිපිටිය

Embilipitiya, an otherwise insignificant little village in south central Sri Lanka, is the easiest method of accessing the famous Udawalawe Wild Life Sanctuary. Uda Walawe, in Sri Lanka's south-central sector, is the area which most resembles an African game park. Wildlife reports say there are about 500 elephants in the park and they often roam in herds of up to 100. Leopards, buffalo, deer and sloth bears keep them company along with mongooses, bandicoots, foxes, water monitor lizards and crocodiles. A half-day tour is the best way to see the 30,821 hectares of protected area parked on the Uda Walawe Reservoir. Go in the early morning or late afternoon, the sites will be no less than spectacular. Sri Lankan wild at its best, and most pristine. (Distance From Colombo : 158 km)
